Line in the Sand

An Album By

Close Your Eyes

Review by

Line In The Sand, Close Your Eyes’ third album from Victory Records, didn’t fall short of anything with this release; die-hard fans have a lot to look forward to.

The group still brings a good mixture of old school hardcore and progressive melodic punk, without oversaturating the listener with either style. From start to finish, each track brings its own attitude. Part of the package deal are clean and harsh vocals, two-step rhythms, acoustic guitars and – of course – breakdowns.

CYE put a lot of thought in the writing structure of this record, both musically and lyrically. Some of the tracks do come off heavier than others, but the balance is well-monitored, and all songs carry an exciting energy that gets deeper than your skin. This is a hardcore album that will be remembered by those who appreciate creativity and a passion for music.

What’s more exciting is that Line In The Sand, having 15 tracks, gives plenty of material for fans to explore, an album to worship the Lord with a joyful noise.

Neck Deep

The Pop-Punk Silver Lining

"I would hope from all of this madness we will come out of it and we're better equipped to understand and have compassion for each other." Releasing a new album during an historical epoch is certainly unique, and, for Neck Deep's 'All Distortions are Intentional,' the band looks to the future with a hopeful – and, yes, unique – approach.

Ever Eden

The Haunting Sound of Hope

"Ever Eden has been this perfect culmination of us realizing what our journey has been and how to aim that as a message for other people." After years of introspection and coming-of-age, Ever Eden has embraced their own struggles, as haunting as it may feel, to create a community that's turned out to be much larger than the band itself.
