A Great Viewpoint on Heavy Subject Matter
Posted February 03, 2014
Fight the Silence has a unique backstory in that the idea for it came about when frontman Matt Montgomery saw a video about human trafficking that had a strong emotional imapct on him. He decided to make this album to give us his thoughts on the subject and from that, he delivered the band's most personal album to date. The sound of the album is consistant with all of their other albums which might make some people disappointed that they haven't evolved and done other things sonically, but the band is great at presenting us with hard hitting metal and they largely present it well here. Fight the Silence could be considered more of the same, and it kind of is, but the lyrics dealing with the heavy subject of human trafficking are so well convied and personal that you kind of forget about the sound and start thinking about how much of an impact the lyrics have on you. 5 albums in and For Today is still going strong.
