pure soundart Bye Bye Beauty (CD, £9.95)label: lockjaw
Pure Soundart are back with their first full-length album. After their cracking debut EP ‘Emo Is Dead’ was released in 2007 the band have been away and written an incredibly complex and exciting album. Influenced by the likes of Brand New and …And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead, Pure Soundart have managed to create something exciting, full of rage, sadness and beauty. They have achieved a heavy sound without resorting to screaming - just using powerful vocals and huge guitars. The album is influenced by their own personal experiences, most of them not good ones, which comes through in the songs and the words but it's never depressing, haunting at times…yes. The album was recorded over 10 long months, which does help explain the epic and well polished finish. You can easily get lost in this album, it embraces you from all sides and doesn’t let go.
