4.5/5 | Posted December 01, 2011
Haste The Day's first album with new lead singer Stephen Keech is a wonderful album that manages to draw you in once the album begins.  It's very energetic and lyrically compelling.  Keech's voice fits in perfectly with what is essentially a rebirth of the band into a more energetic and experimental one.  The reinvention of the band sounds terrific and I think that this is one album that metal fans cannot pass up.

Rip The Seam | Posted September 03, 2007
Wow what an lyrics read it your self need i say more YOUR WORTH MORE THAN THIS




Five words, five words is all it would take.
Five words to change your heart and mind.
In the heat of the sun I know you're the only one.
You still cant' hold yourself together.
Alone... Alone... All alone you have this conversation to satisfy your most intimate inner thoughts.
Then you bite your lip when it matters most.
A shade of red in sight.
Can you taste the blood?
Taste it on your lips.
Rip the seam.
Then I'll show you how the strings become the stitches in your mouth.
In your silence we are louder.
When the strings become the stitches in your mouth.
Your growing imagination preparing you for what your heart requires to say.
Then you bit your lip when it matters most.
A shade of red in sight.
Can you taste the blood? Taste it on your lips.
Rip the seam.
Then I'll show you how the strings become the stitches in your mouth.
In your silence we are louder.
When the strings become the stitches in your mouth.
Five words, repeating over in your head.
That's all you ever have to do.
Five words, repeating over in your head.
That's all you ever have to do.
Five words.
Is it really that hard to say you're worth more that this?
1) You're
2) worth
3) more
4) than
5) this.
Rip the seam.
Then I'll show you how the strings become the stitches in your mouth.
In you silence we are louder.
When the strings become the stitches in your mouth.

pretty good | Posted September 03, 2007
the music is great, and so are the lyrics, i love the singing, think it's like, the drummer one of the guitarists who do the soft vocals, idk, thats always been one of my fav things about HTD, the new screamer isn't as good as Jimmy tho, i was so sad that he left:( don't get me wrong, the new guy is great, it just dosn't seem like Haste The Day anymore tho, idk, they should've like, changed their name or somthin, but then they'd be starting over even more so then they alreay were... ya, anyways, this album is pretty sweet, i like the old HTD alot better tho, but this is still a great buy, and the new guys sings pretty good too, at least, i think he's doin some of the singing b/c some of it sounds a lil different than before, but ya, good CD, go buy it :)

Ohhh Yeahhh. | Posted August 21, 2007
I don't think I've ever listened to a CD as much as I listen to this one. It's been out for awhile, yet I'm pretty sure I played it 20 times more than any other CD I have.

I love the switch from Jimmy Ryan to Stephen Keech. He has a much cleaner sound, yet it keeps the raw energy intact. It just fits like a glove to the rest of the songs.

The entire CD is breathtaking for someone like me. As a girl, I melt at the beautiful vocals, but besides that, haha, I love the smooth, melodic mixed with the heavy rock and distinct scream.

If you're searching for a more sing-along friendly track, "Stitches" and "The Minor Prophets" are amazing, but the whole album is so catchy and lyrically powerful that you can't give up listening to it!

I would definitely recommend getting the Special Edition CD/DVD as well. The extra demo tracks are good for being demos...and the DVD is not only fun to watch for the live sets and the music videos, but those guys are pretty entertaining also!

This album is definitely a must have!

METAL!! | Posted July 24, 2007
This album pwns. Great songs, makes you wanna play it over and over again. Fair good.

The vocals on this album are a lot different to the last, as they have a new guy (he can sing AND growl, yet he's a vegetarian). He is really good they we he controls his voice.

There are more softer songs on this album. More singing. Like Stitches and The Minor Prophets.

IF you like a good clean metal album, go pick up Pressure The Hinges. You'll love it.

Haste the day - Pressure the hinges | Posted July 20, 2007
Great album
with their new singer stephen keech they made a new start and I think it is a good one.The band sings more screams less. And the screaming stil there is better.

The album starts with a great intro with angelic voices calling us to wake up. The voices return in the last song called chorus of angels. The kyric are about live love and how to handle with it. The only thing I don't liek about the album are the lyrics of white collar. especially this part "the sweet relief of saying you shield your hart fot breaking getup get out now get up get out" ebd quote.

But for the rest a great album that everyone should give a listen.

Good stuff right here | Posted July 05, 2007
It's for the hardrock crowd. It's catchy. It's loud. It's been in my player for months.

It starts off with "Eye of the Needle" which is pretty much a soft instrumental to kind of ease you into what's coming. Then it gets into the second track "Pressure The Hinges" and you get into that fast hard sound. This is pretty much what this whole CD brings you. There are some slow but almost "mystic" sounding tracks in between the hard loud ones. The album ends with "Chorus Of Angels" which is addicting in a way I can't really describe.

Some of my favorite tracks include: "Minor Prophets," "White Collar," "Stitches," and "Chorus of Angels."
