BETWEEN TWO UNSEENS
Orange County, CA hardcore troupe Taken choose to say goodbye with this CD, a five-track release that thankfully contains oodles less of what we’ve recently heard come from the area. Emblazoned with a way more substance and displayed with painstaking precision and a grand emotional investement, BETWEEN TWO UNSEENS joins a relentless vocal attack with passionately performed music underneath. Tracks like the atmospheric “Treaded Paths” bridge the gap between Thrice and Dredg, while the soulfully infused fretwork found all over this disc comes to a head on the lush “Eternity Was On Our Lips”. Shame that this band is no longer active and never received the accolades that they deserved, as this disc has a little something for fans of heartfelt heavy music everywhere.
