Silverstein – Rescue Tour 2011

I’ve been waiting for almost 6 years  for this post-hardcore band to come in Southeast Asia that’s the span of time I got My first Silverstein album – When Broken Is Easily Fixed and guess what, they did on July 12, 2011 in Singapore… duh I won’t be righting this if they haven’t. I’m a big fan I admit, I have all the albums and I know most of the songs by heart. I love the raw aggression and sometimes full of emotion songs they make. Basically all of their songs are love songs for the broken-heart(ed) that’s why sometimes they are labeled as “screamo”. I’d prefer calling them post-hardcore or in some cases – metalcore. Their sound is inline with big names in the same genre (which also my favorites) like Funeral For A Friend, Haste The Day, Hawthorne Heights, Under Oath, Story Of The Year and too may bands to mention. Technically the transition of tempos and riffs and the casual growl/scream are the highlights of most of the songs – heavy, fast and aggressive.
