LYED is a band that sent me their demo to review a few months back and I instantly fell in love. Out of hundreds of requests only a handful have ended up being this good. It's almost like a neo-Thrice meets The Bled and Since By Man, or perhaps even an all screaming Saosin. The focus over the 4 songs are well-calculated, mathy post-hardcore/metal. I love the chaotic/screamy semi-breakdowns such as in "Letter #48" at 1:30 where I feel like I'm listening to a record Hopesfall or In Reverent Fear should have made instead of sucking balls after some amazing releases. Although the instrumental interplay is more than decent, it's the vocals that really do this for me. Blood curdling screams that have some variation and it's all very well timed, which again reminds me of In Reverent Fear's 'Written in the AM' masterpiece released back in 2003. "Crooked Arrows" is the band's primary banger, so be sure to check that out below. I can't wait to hear more from this band. Enjoy, I sure did. Thanks, Blake!
