Red Tape Parade by The Third Rail of Life (2011)
Kind of Like: Landmines, Boy Sets Fire, Texas is the Reason
Genres: Punk, Post-Hardcore, Hardcore
"Red Tape Parade’s ‘the third rail of life’ is an honest and melancholic record from an passionate, emotion driven (post)hardcore, punkrock band that can be musically and/or lyrically put besides bands as Boy Sets Fire, Texas is the Reason and Farside. The album offers a good alternation between heavy up-tempo songs and more moderate, more melodic songs. Its a divers album with an overall dark, dramatic and melancholic atmosphere but its drama done in style"
-Out of Step
This band from Germany is alright. I can appreciate the music for sure, but the vocalist is somewhat of a turn off. He sounds kinda nasally, and at times he reminds me of Linkin Park when he is yelling. Yikes. But I definitely know some people will like this that like other stuff on here. I will be indulging in Northcote, however.
