A STATIC LULLABY
A STATIC LULLABY
FEARLESS

After losing three-fifths of the band, California's A Static Lullaby refocused, got new members, and put out its latest offering, an 11-track self-titled affair, all within 18 months. Not too shabby, eh? Neither is this album, if you enjoy straddling the line between alternative punk, screamo metal, and heartfelt hardcore. "Trigger Happy Tarantula" contains the type of fiery dynamic changes reserved for Thursday, while "Eager Cannibals" sounds like a cross between The Used and Fall Out Boy and the rapid-fire one-two punch of "Annexation of Puerto Rico" and "The Art of Sharing Lovers" find the band at its most comfortable, blending melodic screams with raging guitars. A band that takes punk rock volatility, metal's crunch, and alternative rock's catharsis and layers solid melodies and well-directed angst on top, the rebirth of A Static Lullaby is good news for the harder-edged alternative rocker.
