When noted Boston hardcore band There Were Wires finally collapsed it came as somewhat of a relief to its five members. Before the break-up, the band had met more than their share of obstacles: three different guitarists, the loss of the label they called home (a mere three days before their sophomore release was to hit stores), and a brutal workplace accident that nearly severed three fingers off of guitarist Thomas Moses' right hand (they were thankfully re-attached). So when they decided to end the band, drummer Ryan Begley, bassist Jebb Riley and the aforementioned guitarist, Thomas Moses, saw the opportunity for a fresh start. With renewed purpose and vigor, they set to work writing the first batch of songs that would soon be recorded with longtime friend Keith Souza in Providence, Rhode Island. At times heavy and brooding, melancholy and thunderous, spare and glimmering, the now trio achieved with their newfound freedom and space things they had never thought possible with their former band.
The songs seamlessly tumble through a vast palette of moods from lurching, feedback-drenched doom to glorious, harmonic triumph to thoughtfully orchestrated, melodic simplicity. http://disappearermusic.blogspot.com/ Read more on Last.fm.
