The Saddest Landscape – After The Lights


Released through



A lot of bands try this punk/screamo outlet a lot but don’t refine it to what it should be. There’s the raw unpolished sound that works for bands such as Pianos Become the Teeth and Troubled Coast, and a fierce grit that stands out for La Dispute, Defeater and Touché Amoré. The Saddest Landscape uses the proper mix of that gruff sound of screamo with a lot of fast punk/heavy riffs that are evident on songs like “Desperate Vespas” and “Days of Punched In.” Both open the record nicely with Vespers giving that militant drum roll that dominates a lot of the album. The focus of the heavy bassline works a lot on this record that gives the right blend of screamo punk into the range of that heavy post-hardcore sound. The latter song is built with faster riffs and their sharpness adds to keeping an impressive punk feel to the record. It’s frenetic and dissonant. –
