ALMIGHTY TRIGGER HAPPY, THE: I Hate Us Even More: CD

Funny that I receive this for review when I have read somewhere that this band just broke up. It is a loss to a certain degree because they were a pretty good band. When I was really into Swedish melodicore in the early ‘90s, I really enjoyed everything I heard from this band. So I was really excited to see this in my pile for review. Right from first listen, they seemed to keep the energy going right until their demise. Musically talented and with the gift of writing a good melody, the songs don’t blend into one another. Each song seems thought out and with no filler in the bunch. The production is not overblown and adds a slight edge to the sound. Oh well, most bands, no matter how good, don’t last forever.
