Scars of Tomorrow - Horror Of Realization Review

by Joannie Foney

.
To simply state that Scars of Tomorrow is a band that most decidedly does not suck would not sufficiently convey the incredibly powerful nonsucking that they engage in. This CD could bring life to the dead and it is one I will be listening to for some time. The CD is pretty atypical of metalcore in general, featuring more lyrical and musical complexity than I'm used to in this genre, which was a shockingly nice surprise. With "The Horror of Realization, their sophomore release, SoT shows their respect for their rabidly devoted fans by staying true to the sound which attracted so many in the first place. They have matured musically, without changing their essence or intensity. It is so hard to write about CDs of this quality, you simply must hear this band. If you liked their first CD, this one will blow you away. Sandwiched in between the just- in- time- for- Halloween's brooding "Murders & Madmen" and the track featuring a guest appearance by Atreyu's Alex Varkatzas is my favorite, "SSnova", which starts out so deceptively pretty & delicate that you almost might start to wonder what a song like this is doing on a CD like this. It quickly reveals its right to belong, however, growling sinisterly along till its too- soon ending. None of these songs drags or plods along, all sound original & unique, this is a CD that deserves a huge, gigantic audience. With music of this caliber, that should be inevitable. They are launching a massive tour this fall with Bury Your Dead, be sure to catch 'em.

I can't say anything besides that; this CD will be on my list of best of 2005 releases.
