ON BROKEN WINGS
IT’S ALL A LONG GOODBYE
They call it mosh-metal, but Boston’s On Broken Wings’ 11-track release sure sounds like a metalcore disc not unlike bands like Bury Your Dead and Evergreen Terrace. Songs like “Pushing Up Daisies” and “Frozen Over” contain those punishing rhythms with a plethora of parts and breakdowns that kids will be able to beat the hell out of each other to, while “More Than Life” and “Tongue in Teeth” commendably follow the growl/ sing trend. IT’S ALL A LONG GOODBYE is an album that lacks distinction, but is brazen with ballistic barrages of demonic aggression with the potential of unleashing furious waves of unforeseen chaos.
