Formed in January of 2004, they've fast developed a natural chemistry, allowing them to constantly evolve as musicians, aiming beyond the simple, straight-forward songwriting that plagues a lot of bands in their genre. Genre is a bit of a tricky subject... When asked, they'd probably tell you Post Hardcore/ Screamo or something along those lines. Although watching them play, one might be prone to question the 'Post' part of that description. Heartfelt and melodic, and not afraid to throw in a breakdown or two, which is more than occasionally. Influences include the likes of Thrice, The Bled, Refused, Thursday, Beloved, All That Remains, and many more. While staying true to the music they love and grew up with, Burden of a Day is ready and able to progress forward and pass the message on to the next generation. For fans of: Alexisonfire, Underoath and Silverstein.

Pretty much awesome.| Posted February 15, 2009
This album is just a great take on Christian scremo music. Sweet lyrics, good guitar riffs and some good clean vocals. Also the gang vocals made this album awesome. I love how the first track "Blessed Be Our Ever After" serves as a sort of into to the whole album. "Pt. 2 Sometimes They Do? is a good starter with a kind of hopeless song about a shootout. They bounce back with a hopeful song about fighting for each other in "Sorry Secrest its Casey's Countdown" which that one "Battle For Hoth" and "Monsters Amoung us are my favorites. The whole album is really good. The songs don"t sond the same and they have a good use of clean vocals. One of my favorite albums.
