Atreyu “The Hope of a Spark”

This is a band I can’t break up with. And boy is it an abusive relationship. For a band that peaked on their third release, I sure have stuck around for a really long time. But I think it may be time to move on and stop sensationalizing this cheese. Pass the grinder, my pasta is getting cold. This will never be Fall Out Boy, Black Veil Brides, Motionless In White or Ice Nine Kills or anything else that plays in that space simply because Atreyu are just not very good songwriters. There’s “Watch Me Burn” which brings “I’ll Wait For You” vibes, but even then, they ruin it with digitized melodic infusion that just feels out of place. This is just something else entirely that doesn’t stick a landing. You thought “Baptize” was rough? You’re better off doing the crossword puzzle on the back of your cookie crisp for quality entertainment.
