The Words In Ink Don't Lie (Equal Vision Records)

By: Mike SOS

Endicott's newest 12-track release is one of the most ambitious underground efforts thus far this year, both lyrically and conceptually. Equipped with an explosive punk with hints of hardcore delivery, the album's point of view switches throughout the entire disc, detailing the story of an abduction via the perspective of victim, abductor, and the victim's family, making Endicott's offering one of the most stark topics for a concept album. Despite the initial confusion, what holds The Words In Ink Don't Lie firmly in place without unraveling into a sonic and logistic disaster are the quintet's penchant for rhythmic solidarity a la fellow upstate NY'ers like Snapcase and Coheed and Cambria, as well as the innate ability to tug at the heart strings, especially during the atmospheric gut wrench of "Holding Cell" or through the swirling feedback of "Southbound". For an endearing yet disturbing listening experience that surpasses the normal punk rock album's limits, check out Endicott's new album.
