Greyheaven “Empty Black”

For those of us who’ve been around long enough to know there is only one Keith Buckley this record will play like a wet fart on deaf ears. The music is convincing and the band rocks out super proper, but just because Hot Damn! came out fifteen years ago doesn’t mean those of us following along have forgotten its contributions to the scene. This band rips off the animated vocal stylings of early Every Time I Die, and tries to implement a layer of flexibility similar to Fight Paris. While on its own it makes for a decent alternative hardcore record, it’s almost painful to get through again to hear those failed tongue-in-cheek elements that just fall flat. Something like Misery Signals’ Karl Schubach would have been more appropriate.
