Pierce The Veil are an American post-hardcore band from San Diego, California. Pierce The Veil (also known as PTV) was formed in 2007, by brothers Vic and Mike Fuentes after the disbandment of a band called Before Today. Pierce The Veil made the debut album ‘A Flair for the Dramatic’ n in 2007. Since then they have released two more studio albums that include ‘Selfish Machines’ and ‘Collide With The Sky’.
One of the best things an album can do is grab the audiences attention as soon on as possible. Pierce the Veil do not fail in doing this in their newest album. Opening with the song ‘May These Noises Startle You In Your Sleep Tonight’ Pierce the Veil use the sound of distorted vocals, a crackling white noise and acoustic guitar that seeks and grabs attention. The song then explodes into a heavy hitting song that then progresses into ‘Hell Above’ with soaring vocals and heavy guitars. These two songs make the listener want to proceed on listen to the rest of the album, that doesn’t fail to amuse. Collide With The Sky comes to a shuddering stop with ‘Hold On Till May’ with more cracking white noises and the band talking in little voices.
Only once does Collide With The Sky let off for only 30 seconds or so, in the song ‘Tangled In The Great Escape’ featuring Jason Butler of Letlive. This song isn’t the only noteworthy collaboration on this album. Collide With The Sky also boasts tracks featuring Kellin Quinn of Sleeping With Sirens and Oh No Fiasco’s Lindsey Stamey.
I think this album is a prime example of the growth that Pierce The Veil have under gone. Everything about the album seems more professional and experienced. The band have come a long way since their first album in 2007 and have progressed a vast amount.
Being a big fan of Pierce The Veil, I couldn’t wait for the this album to come out. Especially after hearing the amazing ‘King For A Day‘ collaboration with good friend of the band, Kellin Quinn of Sleeping With Sirens. Collide With The Sky has been well worth the two year wait for Pierce The Veil fans. This album has had so much positive feedback from fans, that doesn’t surprise me. A lot of work and dedication has been put into this album that has paid off well.
“After years of hard times, Pierce The Veil’s new album Collide With The Sky has seen their career explode. What kept them going? Vic Fuentes says they’ll hang in there for their fans, no matter what…” – As said by Kerrang! magazine.
I’m among many fans of Pierce The Veil that would recommend the purchase of this album. Staying true to their roots, Pierce The Veil have also added little Spanish style guitar riffs both in songs and in between songs. Each song on the album is different to the next. A really fresh and different album to listen to. Definitely worth a strong 9/10 rating.
