Sometimes gritty, sometimes pretty, THE LAST FORTY SECONDS released a slew of stuff from 1999-2001 and then disbanded. The related acts section above is fucking stupid good, I mean Ampere, Wolves, The Saddest Landscape and Anton Bordman in the same band seems, to put it simply, unrealistic. It's certainly worth mentioning that with members sharing vocals, the band tends to levitate towards that vocalist's sound, as the songs that feature Andy sound quite a bit like older The Saddest Landscape while Stephen's songs are much more akin to Montcalm.

In 1999 they released a 4-song demo which is quite decent but has a song called "Consumed" that is by far the heaviest thing the band ever wrote, and it comes across as sounding kind of like Joshua Fit For Battle. In 2000 they dropped the 12"LP that houses the band's best work, including "My Favourite Actor", "Cutting Down the Glare" and "Waking From the Dreamdate". 2001 was the year of THE LAST FORTY SECONDS' dissolution as well as their two final split 7"s with Sundowner and Trillion Barnacle Lapse which are both good but don't hit as hard as the LP. The band's sound can very easily be explained as a mixture of soft and hard 90s emo/screamo. Plain and simple. Check the for fans of list for further comparisons, but if you enjoy the stylings of Maximillian Colby, Tipping Canoe and Indian Summer grab the mp3 download pronto.
