Codeseven
Dancing Echoes/Dead Sounds (Equal Vision)

By: Mike SOS

Codeseven is not the same band you may have heard of before. Long gone are the explosive bursts of screaming hardcore, thanks to one of the two singer's the band employed hitting the bricks. What replaces the outfit's once crushing aura is a lush, almost soul-soothing electronic rock smattering. Nary you'll hear a scream at all on Dancing Echoes/Dead Sounds, as it seems like this North Carolina quintet have traded in all of its aggressive glories to become a band with spacious deliveries and posh melodies like Pink Floyd, Dredg, and Radiohead. While the sudden change in direction isn't a failure by any means, those looking for the muscular sound the band once commanded are in for a rude, yet mature awakening, as songs like the electronically manipulated grooves of "Pathetic Justice" and "Alt. Wav" are what dominates the musical scope this time around.
