I've spent quite some time trying to research this band. A friend introduced me to WITH HORSES IN HER EYES over the internet about 3 months ago and I was very impressed with the band's only recorded output, 'Prologue', so I attempted to track everything else down - but to no avail. I do know that the band changed their name to HISTORIES right before breaking up, but that seems rather inconsequential considering they never released anything under that moniker.

"Page 1" (as the tracks are labeled as pages) gives some hasty nods to bands like Kodan Armada and Funeral Diner. This track is able to mesh heavy riffs and screaming with softer, spacey tangents. "Page 2" takes a much more straight-forward approach - with a lead-in that plods along for over a minute until nestling nicely into a slow jam at the 2 minute mark - which is one of the highlights of the album. I would assume Old Gray fans will lose their shit when hearing this - especially considering it came out in 2006. I'm immersing myself in this song right now and dear god it kills - as the subtle build continues for the rest of the song without ever exploding - but it lingers on the cusp at the 3:30 mark. "Page 3" is a mid-tempo song that starts strong but recedes for a little too long during the second half of the song. "Page 4" has a very early Hopesfall feel to it - which I wholeheartedly appreciate by giving a nonchalant high-five to ET and Drew Barrymore's lovechild. It ain't no thang. The 5th and final Page is 3 minutes of screamed vocals over an acoustic guitar and seems to be the most popular song among the kids - but for the life of me, I don't know why. It's definitely the low point of the record, in my opinion. Regardless of "Page 5", this ep is fantastic - so give "Page 1" a listen below and then download my link. If you dig Frameworks, I'm sure you can get behind this old and very obscure release.

Grab this, and someone get more info on this band so I can post more about them.

  1. Even though this is an old post, thank you for posting it! I have been trying to remember what this band went by before they were Histories. I was fortunate enough to see them play a tiny show outside atlanta in 2006, just before their break-up. Definitely a solid band, and one of the bands that introduced me to true screamo.
