Genres: Experimental, Mathcore, Noise Rock
"Daughters (frequently mislabeled ‘The Daughters’) is a noisecore band formed in Providence, Rhode Island in 2001, following the demise of a similar Providence-based band, As the Sun Sets. Their music is fast and experimental; their drums commonly feature blast beats, and their guitars are a blur of high pitched squeals and fast fretting. With the release of Hell Songs, Daughters became more of a noise rock band - with vocals more reminiscent of The Jesus Lizard’s David Yow than a traditional hardcore or metalcore vocalist - and toured with bands such as The Locust, Russian Circles, Young Widows, and The Chinese Stars."
Released in 2010, this is Daughters' last album. This album marks a pinnacle inclusion of groovyness to the spastic noisecore and grind sounds prominent in their earlier releases. At just 8 tracks, the album clocks in at an easily digestible 27 min. and is perfect from start to finish. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
