Thousand Autumns – Chasing Boats (terrible post hardcore for fans of shitty music)

Thousand Autumns – Chasing Boats

thousand-autumns-chasing-boats

This is my 3rd listen through chasing boats, and nothing is memorable. I like post hardcore a lot. And the fact that these guys are actually fluent at their instruments makes it even worse. They can’t write a solid catchy memorable riff. 30 seconds into the first song I remember why I can’t remember anything about this attempt at an EP. There is just no quality to these songs. The blend of wanting to be heavy one second, while trying to incorporate hooks with clean singing, fall very short of bands like Artist in The Ambulance era thrice.

Track 2 kicks in and only one word comes to mind. Predictable. I know what’s coming next each time. Clean singing. Clean singing over half time feel. Breakdown. There’s a formula here these guys are following. I’m very bored with this EP, and it’s almost painful to write about.
Group chants plague this entire thing, and its still incredibly boring.
Song 3 had a legitimately catchy intro, I will give them that. But then it’s back to the regurgitated garbage I’ve come to expect with this release. To call them a Second rate Thursday at this point would be an insult to Thursday.

Thousand Autumns writes incredibly forced music. You can tell when someone is just going through the motions, and when someone genuinely has passion in what they’re making. These guys don’t seem to give a shit about the fact that they suck, probably because some dumbasses are actually buying this bullshit.

Song 4 is the title track. I’m finally the end of this crap. I don’t even want to listen anymore. Sounds like scene kids at a high school talent show. More gang vocals, slow pretty part, breakdown, chorus, breakdown, gang vocals, another slow pretty part(this shit is waaaayyy too predictable. And please don’t get me started on how bad the lyrics are, ” You swam by chasing boats. I will sink forever”
Great lyrics…
And while I’m at it, what the fuck does this name even mean? Come on. But I guess its fitting. Shitty Band and Shitty Name. Just plain shitty. At least they stick true to the trends. Some name that means nothing with the standard season or month
(from autumn to ashes, august burns red, the autumn offering, the early november, across five aprils, the rocket summer, etc…)

I was really tempted to photoshop a dick into this, but I've wasted enough time on this band

Thankfully this ear raping is over, and I’m never listening to this band again. They have been deleting from my iTunes. Save your money and buy anything else.

If I could give this less than 1 out of 5 I would.
