I first saw FRANCIS BRADY on the Mara'akate 'Congratulations on Your Impending Geography' DVD. During the band's stint in Europe they played with FRANCIS BRADY and captured some footage of the band. I remember first thinking goddamn that is some shrieky-ass German music. After hearing a split, I believe it was the Eaves split 7", I became aware of just how intricate, intense as well as shrieky they could be.

"November Und Wir Fliehen" has a very dark atmosphere like tainted cavern water and reminds me a lot of the new Truman EP, which also kicks ass and you should check out immediately. When the band gets really intense the outcome is blistering and violent.

From the 'Demo' and 'Francis Brady' EPs pretty much every song is awesome. Besides the obvious screamo/emo-violence leanings they throw in some post-hardcore/metallic hardcore on songs like "Is This the End?" as the palm-muted guitars swirl like Hopesfall or Saosin. "Too Slow to Stop Decay" is a very intense ride. "Finding Love in Acts of Despair" begins with a fantastic chorded bass intro that sets the stage for the devastating metallic screamo that follows. Implementing a plethora of screamers, FRANCIS BRADY saturate the listener with numerous layers of desperation and anger. The rhythmic shifts in "Schalter: Emotion Leerlauf" are fantastic, most notably at the 23-second mark as it drops down and then back up again just over 10 seconds later. At 0:58 things quiet down and the lone guitar drops in with some sexy clean midwestern-emo style plucks which reach a crescendo at 1:25 and again at 1:48 with a sweet breakdown. I'd definitely call "Schalter: Emotion Leerlauf" the best overall FRANCIS BRADY song.

In 2005 the band was included on the '' with the exclusive track "Tranen Werden Zu Illusion" which is a really good song and I'm glad it was released because otherwise I don't think it was available. It's more metallic hardcore/screamo/emo-violence and it's included in the discography download here. Enjoy!
