Love Amidst the Darkness
Artist: Aneirin
Label: Independent
A quintet based in Hagerstown, Maryland is making the rounds and paying its dues, building a following, gaining experience, and, now, digitizing its first set of songs on an EP, at present, only available online and at shows. The thrash emo-core style al la mewithoutYou features earnest lyrics alternatively screamed and sung to wandering melodies over driving drums and clashing cymbals. Tight, crunchy guitars stitch it together. We also enjoy the keyboards featured in their CD, but not in the live show, as very nicely done and surely not an after thought. The pre-show, on-stage huddle for prayer makes the basis of their art obvious. Play on, young men, toward the unknown future, sharing that Love Amidst the Darkness.
