Mesa Verde - The Old Road (2008)

Genre: Screamo/Post-Rock

Mesa Verde deliver impassioned hardcore music filled with emotive singing and screaming, similar to the likes of Envy with their subtle post-rock influences. The chaotic screamo sound is carefully counterpointed by the tension breaking post-rock moments, the aggressive sections of songs building up with raw anger and passion, creating an immense tide of emotion and energy that never runs dry. The 13 minute 'Post-Youth' is one of the most epic songs I've ever had the pleasure of hearing, it's fraught with energy, going through a multitude of changes until the final cries of "One day, my dreams will meet my fears", it seriously hits me really deeply. This is the definition of despair and it rules.

So damn good!
