Burden Of A Day - Blessed Be Our Ever After
There is one way to explain Burden of A Day. Amazing. While some people may listen to Burden of A Day and think that they are just another post-hardcore band, there are others that notice the talent that oozes from your speakers when you start to listen to Blessed Be Our Ever After. I believe that Burden of A Day could be one of the bands that turn the tide for post-hardcore. In an age where bands like Brokencyde, Aiden, and Hollywood Undead are getting all the fame, we loose sight of the bands that are actually working hard, putting on good performances and putting out good albums to make kids happy.
Blessed Be Our Ever After is the culmination of five very talented hardworking individuals known as Burden of a Day. The remarkable thing about this album is that Burden of A Day isn't a band putting useless lyrics together to sound funny or make people laugh. The lyrics tell a story. For example, Sometimes They Do is a story is about a fight between outlaws and the death of a friend. Very intriguing to say the least. Burden of A Day keeps to a 2-step pace to their music on this album. It makes the album really easy to move to, and a lot of the breakdowns will make you want to get out of your seat. Something thats good to hear is that, not all of their breakdowns are the same old open C note triplet breakdown. You know how people usually say hat it's the little things that matter? Well, that is true when it comes to the various breakdowns in the tracks on Blessed Be Our Ever After. They basically integrate everything you can do with a guitar, including cartwheels, into the common breakdown that we have come to know and love.
The bottom line is, by all means check out Blessed Be Our Ever After by Burden of A Day. It's a masterpiece by these young men and will take your breath away. And by all means, if you have the chance, go see them live because that will make you feel like someone punched you in your testicles with awesome force. My recommended tracks for you to check out would be the intro track Blessed Be Our Ever After, Sometimes They Do, Battle for Hoth, and White Coats and Their Medicine.

Just quickly listening to a few songs on their myspace and you're right, to me they do sound the same as about 10 other bands I could name off hand.. To be fair though I'll check out the whole disc and see if I can see what's got you all excited about them. Maybe I'm just getting a little bored with this genre, it's hard to say.
