Spires - Flowers And Fireworks (2009)

Genre: Screamo/Hardcore

The debut release by Spires is a fantastic display of, well, I'm not really sure what genre I'd put this into but I guess I'll go for screamo with influences of post-metal thrown in there maybe. Ah well, I think it's great how these guys move from sparse but sprawling guitar parts to bursts of noise and yet still make it feel like a natural and flowing progression. They've got a slower sound in comparison to most screamo bands I've heard as a result of the post-metal influences, but still vary it up and make it interesting, which all in all makes for a pretty damn cool album. I advise you check it out if you're into the whole screamo thing as this is pretty great.



  1. awesome stuff. have you heard the new songs?

  2. The new songs? Which new songs?

  3. from the 1994 split I'm guessing. theyre on their myspace.
