Every Time I Die reinvent the aggressive music genre each time they release an album. There is no hidden hyperbole or underlying exaggeration in this statement. Rather, it is simply fact and the band’s latest album, From Parts Unknown, is no exception. After sixteen years, seven studio LPS, and more whiskey drenched venues, the Buffalo bruisers have seen, heard, and experienced most everything. However, the quintet reached into the great depths of their psyches to whip up another shockingly phenomenal album in their already spotless discography.
The working lifespan of a hardcore/punk vocalist is not, by any stretch of the imagination, long. This unnerving, but true statement has been particularly poignant in the past year with the deterioration of the voice of Polar Bear Club’s Jimmy Stadt, which has subsequently resulted in a questionable future for the Upstate New York five-piece.
However, it seems as if Every Time I Die’s Keith Buckley is not drinking from a cup filled with whiskey, the devil’s blood, or any other ill-intentioned liquid, but rather water from the fountain of youth, as his vocals on From Parts Unknown are easily the best of his career. Tracks like “Decayin’ With The Boys” (a sardonic jab at Kenny Loggins’ “Playing With The Boys,” one can only hope) and “Moor” demonstrate Buckley’s incredible vocal ability, with the master front-man coming off as if he’s recently gargled with steel wool, while managing to still deliver the most supple clean vocals.
