As one of the most respected metal bands out there, Glassjaw has a unique emo-hardcore sound going for them that no other band can simply match. Their newest outing “]Worship and Tribute”] (produced by Ross Robinson) continues the Glassjaw tradition with an in your face hardcore and melodic slugfest aimed to knock the mainstream around a little.

Worship and Tribute is very melody heavy, having more soft songs then one would anticipate. The lyrical work is deep, flowing, top notch material that is sometimes ruined by a whiney scream or two, but nothing too distracting. Making up for the softness is a uniquely blasting, aggressive onslaught utilizing riffs that aren’t overused by every other wannabe rock band out there. The music is catchy at times, nothing like pop catchy, but something more intricate and perfect for the avid rock listener. “]Cosmopolitan Bloodloss”] offers a perfect example of this with its chorus. Every instrument and song comes together in a complete package that is expected to please. The songs titles alone show the originally present within the band. The angst and overall power isn’t as intense as their previous albums were, but it still hits, and hits hard.

These guys are also going to be on Ozzfest this year, something that shouldn’t be missed. If you haven’t heard these guys yet, pick up this cd and “]Everything You Wanted To Know About Silence”]. You won’t regret it.
