I’m sure by now you’ve seen the Victory logo on the right and, well, I’m about to drop the dreaded “sing/scream” moniker, so you might want to stop reading right here if those two factors are enough to raise your reservations and/or sneers. Yes, this is another Victory band employing the grunted verse / whined chorus formula, and yes, the music often relies on chugging hardcore clichés, soaring melodic pomposity and echoing guitar lines. It’s a polarizing sound that will test the patience of listeners who have already written this genre off, while fans of the contemporary sing/scream sound (post-hardcore pop?) will now have one more band name to add to the music section of their MySpace page.
