    The rise of “melodic hardcore” certainly was a dark cloud wasn’t it?

  2. Ben Edge Says:

    No, no it wasn’t.

  3. Gray Says:

    I suppose you may be right. Upon re-listening to this Godspeed video I noticed just how fantastic the off-key vocals are, and just how fulfilling the Pearl Jam-lite riffs were.
    Maybe I was wrong, maybe Farside, Gameface, Texas Is The Reason, Shades Apart, Lifetime, Campfire…hell, all those bands with terrible singers and lukewarm watered down music, really WERE great.

  4. Tito Says:

    I was a big fan of all that music when I was a teen, but only because I had nothing to compare it to. When I got older and finally discovered melodic music made by people who could actually sing, play and wrote decent songs, it made this stuff seem really really lame and juvenile. I think this sound serves as a necessary transition from simple hardcore to more complex stuff, but doesn’t really stand too well on its own.

  5. Wire Says:

    lol. Nice one Gary. What do you expect from burning joint members?

  6. palmer Says:

    thanks. love this, did godspeed record anything else?

    i like juvenile music, makes me feel juvenile.

  7. Ben Edge Says:

    Gray,

    You were half-wrong. Farside, Texas Is The Reason (on record), and Lifetime really WERE great. Shades Apart was pretty good too.

    I don’t hear the similarities between Godspeed and Pearl Jam, at all.

  8. Latrell Says:

    “I don’t hear the similarities between Godspeed and Pearl Jam, at all.”

    he seems like one of those dudes who listens to nothing but hardcore and thinks anything that isn’t hardcore and is melodic sounds like pearl jam.
