This Runs Through were one of the only standout metalcore bands around until their singer left to sing for Underoath, and that coupled with their bassist leaving broke the band up for good. We are left with this EP as their only release that shows just how good things could have been. This Runs.

This Runs Through were one of the only standout metalcore bands around until their singer left to sing for Underoath, and that coupled with their bassist leaving broke the band up for good. We are left with this EP as their only release that shows just how good things could have been.

This Runs Through play melodic metal/hardcore comparable to a heavier version of Hopesfall. Spencer is the center of attention on this EP with his incredibly intense vocals. His scream is truely in a league of it's own. The guitarists use harmonics with a spiritual quality similar as said before to Hopesfall, adding metal technicality and a deeper tone to the mix. The mix on this album is a little muddy but it gets the job done. This lyrics and deeply personal and despite a few obvious references to christian faith, most anybody can relate to them. For a hardcore band especially the song structure is brilliant and everything meshes together well and is very well composed for a band that was so early in it's life.

It's a shame that This Runs Through never got to release their Facedown Records full length that was to be, but at least we are left with an EP that represents an incredibly strong effort from a band who put everything into what they were doing.

TRT's drummer, Phil, who is also spencer's older brother is in a rock band called Sullivan now. www.sullivancares.com
The new underoath is amazing but I wish we had a TRT full length.

"A solid cd, and definately some nice guys, but calling them "one of the only standout metalcore bands" is a bit of a stretch, and by a bit i mean a whole lot. This runs through plays gereic metalcore, but they play it very well and have some interesting hooks, but thats where it ends. I would compare them more to unearth of premonitions of war, I think that hopesfall has a way stronger sense of melody (especially on their last two cds) and are not as metal influenced. They are on facedown, which means they are the "jesus saves" type, but its not very overt in the music. Good band, great guys."

I agree with this almost. To say they are one of the only standout metalcore bands is an overstatement, they are not doing anything outside of what is popular in hardcore today. They play well but bring nothing new to the table. I'd say bands like Burnt By the Sun or The End are actually changing up there sound and doing something that is not trendy. I think the comparison to a heavier Hopesfall is pretty accurate though, I wouldnt say this is like pow or unearth though, those bands are more chaotic and have more of a groove sound than a melodic sound, more like coalesce or human remains.

what does "when forever finds me" mean? does that even remotely make sense?

metalcore sucks ass.

(this is the same guy as the third post) Yea I saw them with evelynn in houston and they are alot of fun live. Im sad they broke up, even though ive heard the new underoath stuff and it sounds really good with spencer.

I'll be reviewing the new RN too, Scott really hooked me up. I like the new RN a lot better than their other stuff, and their remarks about how they contributed to downfall of hardcore are really surprising.

Conduit (January 31, 2004)

Well, they are from this area, and I saw them alot before they broke up, and through their live show they became one of my favorite bands. Trust me, I have seen alot of metalcore bands and TRT definately stand out, at least live. The record could be better but for an EP I think it's great. At least your not a dumbass and actually explained your opinion instead of tagging "metalcore sucks ass" on here haha.

The new Casey Jones and AJI records are both great. The new Remembering Never is actually really different and really good as well.

FortyMinutesWest (January 31, 2004)

I already reviewed the new Jealousy Issue, and a review of Casey Jones is coming.

JonLCFmag (January 31, 2004)

I really want to hear this record, nothing has touched the new Casey Jones or the new A Jealousy Issue, I hope scott and co. review both of them here.

You know I can't stand metalcore type stuff, but I never minded this band. Good to see it reviewed, anyway.
