November Kills
Russian Roulette (Hot Foot Records)

By: Mike SOS

The Long Island quintet November Kills? passion rivals that which propelled The Used, Jimmy Eat World, and Taking Back Sunday to the limelight. The outfit?s 12-track release features sweeping choruses, ambitious guitars, and sensible, sturdy songwriting that supercedes the places in songs that may sound a bit too Story of the Year-esque. An excellent recording also captures every metalcore breakdown as well as it does the most tender whisper, truly benefiting the dazzling dynamics of tracks like "Familiar Sound" and "Wendy?s Song". Not afraid to stomp out a la Thrice meets Deftones on "Mi Sforzo" and the spastic "Made for TV" or get all mushy on tracks like "Shotgun Falls", RUSSIAN ROULETTE exhibits a versatile group who can hold their own in the heavy as well as break it down for the ladies.
