Lost Boy [edit]
by MyChildren MyBride | Genre: Hard Rock/Metal | Release Date: June 08, 2010
 

Madison, Alabamaís MyChildren MyBride will release its new album, Lost Boy, on June 8 via Solid State Records. The follow-up to 2008ís critically acclaimed Unbreakable was recorded at Glow In The Dark Studio in Atlanta, Georgia by producer Matt Goldman (Underoath, Copeland, The Chariot). The new record recalls both the vehemence and sincerity of Unbreakable while progressing in musical maturity. "Musically itís about writing what was in our heads at the moment," guitarist Robert Bloomfield states. "We went in with the thought of íif we are going to be playing these songs for the next two years on tour, then we want them to be really fun for the live show.í"

"From day one," Bloomfield adds, "it was like Matt Goldman was already in our heads. He saw what we wanted and tried to help us create it. The man has the best sense of humor. The most fun Iíve ever had in a studio."

Great! | Posted August 12, 2011
MyChildren MyBride takes metalcore to a new level with their sophomore album Lost Boy. This is a much better band and sound than Unbreakable in 2008.  The band has clearly learned a lot since their debut, and it shows.

Musically, there is much of the same as Unbreakable, but it sounds cleaner and tighter. The guitars make themselves known in highlight tracks "Crimson Grim" and the hardcore punk-like "Redeemer." Matthew's vocals are very diverse, as he can go from deathcore growls to hardcore punk yells ("King of the Hopeless"). The breakdowns are huge, with chest pounding double bass, grinding guitars, and even gang vocals. The best breakdowns are in "King of the Hopeless," "Lost Boys," and "Nuclear."

The lyrics are not without substance either. The lyrics: "Our mortal flesh is nothing but a mantle of corruption, unveil and deliver into the hands of our Creator," in "Terra Firma" is a clear reference to God. In "Dark Passenger" they say "A live lived in fear isn't a life lived at all."  And "Redeemer" it talks about purpose ("We were designed for so much more than this life we're living").

Overall, the only flaw is that the songs sound very similar to each other, but when it's this good, I don't mind much. This album will most likely appeal to fans of Unbreakable, metalcore in general, even punk fans might enjoy this. Well done, MCMB for reinventing an oversaturated genre.

4/5 | Posted June 09, 2011
Mychildren Mybride is a relativly new band on the Solid State lineup.  Their second album, Lost Boy, showcases their evolution as a band.  All the songs seem more mature lyrically and musically than the songs on their debut album.  I really don't have that much to say about this album except that it showcases a band that looks to have a promising future.
