Love = Hell, Says Ressurected Victims of Romance
Step by step the Alkaline Trio take us through the struggle, pain, and triumph of life gone dismay in their newest release â€šÃ„Ã²Good Mourningâ€šÃ„Ã´ – times ten energy and blending flawlessly the bandâ€šÃ„Ã´s older unrefined style with the professional mixing of rock-stardom. Driven by the cryptic and metaphorical lyrics of the dark pop-punk sound which has made them so popular through the years among all down-trodden hearts, the â€šÃ„Ã²Trio have settled back into a groove of fast paced, driving music due in large part to new, permanent drummer Derek Grant (The Suicide Machines).The band caters them-selves as more mysterious then ever; colorizing their music with blood-red, black, and coffins enforced by the ‘Trioâ€šÃ„Ã´s greatest quality: Matt Skiba and Dan Andrianoâ€šÃ„Ã´s surreal vocals which scream simply â€šÃ„Ã²love hurtsâ€šÃ„Ã´. The guitars are harmonized and the poppiness of the music takes the â€šÃ„Ã²gothicâ€šÃ„Ã´ out of the otherwise dismal words of these menâ€šÃ„Ã´s personal journals. The tempo will spike and a voice will crack where it really hurts, and the tunes will keep you nodding your head. In short: These boys have made a complete, tight compilation of songs perfect for picking you up when you really waned to stay miserable.
