Bloodgiver - Bear vs. Shark - 1653 (CD) download full album zip cd mp3 vinyl flac
This album has so much longevity. I took it out for a listen today, and as Cocaine said, it is still just as much fun as the first time I heard it.
I'm anxious for Champions of History to put out some full material, although I doubt it will live up to these expectations. Great review. These guys helped get me into post-hardcore and were the first equal vision band I heard I think. Bloodgiver still gives me the chills. Bear vs. Review Summary: An emotionally tense and beautiful Post Hardcore masterpiece, truly a testament to everything that is great about both Bear Vs. Shark and the genre they represent, whatever it may truly be.
Rank: for Bear Vs. The very name brings back memories of my childhood, being five years old and caught up in a fierce argument with my younger brother that there is no way that Spider Man could beat an army of Tyrannosaurus Rex.
I suppose that we, the audience, would have to take into account the terrain, and if the Bear would be fighting the shark in a shallow pool or if the Bear would be wearing a scuba outfit whilst fighting his aquamarine adversary in the ocean. Regardless, it would be a clash of two polar opposites, two predators that come from completely different worlds coming together and colliding into one another to create one.
This same idea holds true for the Michigan based band that this review is about; only instead of a Bear and a Shark, they combine traditional Hardcore and Post Hardcore with an infectious blend of Midwest Indie.
The results of this match up are nothing less than amazing. Shark, but as I previously stated, they play a unique fusion of Post Hardcore and Indie. Their sound brings to mind names like At The Drive In, Fugazi, and Maps and Atlases; but they are still distinctly different from each of the aforementioned acts.
What puts Bear Vs. Shark ahead of most modern music today though, is how their absolutely impeccable sense of melody plays into their music.
They create music that is not only aggressive and unique, but shockingly catchy and poppy as well. Even Bloodgiver - Bear vs.
Shark - 1653 (CD) vocalist Marc Paffi is screaming his lungs out, they retain a bouncy pop feel, clearly a characteristic brought in by their Midwest Indie influence. Their music is everything that Post Hardcore should be: Aggressive, Unpredictable, and most importantly Honestand the vast array of influence that Bear Vs. Shark incorporates grants them accessibility beyond the typical punk audience. As I talked about earlier Bear Vs. Shark brilliantly balance melody with plenty of aggressive parts, transitioning in and out of screaming to soft, beautiful, melodies.
Like many bands, this soft loud dynamic plays a huge role in their sound, but not in the traditional sense. Instead of opting for a rather generic formula of screamed verses and catchy choruses, Paffi completely blends the two together and transitions from singing to screaming seamlessly, multiple times in each chorus and verse. There is so much variation in the vocals that they often feel like an instrument themselves, pushing the music in different directions and jumping around odd time signatures like clowns at a rodeo.

Wednesday, May 13, Bear vs. Shark- This is the self-released debut from Michigan post-hardcore band Bear vs. I count five of the eight on this ep. As a whole the ep is excellent and it is a little disappointing they didn't re release it because all of the songs are truly great.
This band broke up way too early in their career Bloodgiver - Bear vs. Shark - 1653 (CD) if you haven't heard their two full lengths, do so immediately because they will blow your mind. Campfire 2. United Tribes Of Pangea 3. Kylie 4. California Hotseat 5. Michigan 6. Remember This Assignment 7. Bloodgiver 8. Ma Jolie. Labels: Bear vs Shark. I've always liked the Early November.
I know they're supposedly "just another emo punk band" but they have a certain charm to them that so many bands of the same genre today lack.
And they have good lyrics also something other bands of this genre lack. A few of the songs from this record were redone for their first ep For All Of This. The cd quality is great and you like this album, you should pick up their other two full lengths and two eps. You should also check out singer Ace Enders' new album. I haven't had a chance to check it out but I'm hearing good things about it. Every Night's Another Story 2.
For the Road 3. All We Ever Needed 4. Come Back 5. Just Enough 6. Pretty Pretty 7. Make Believe 8. Nothing 9. Ashala Rock Open Eyes Sunday Drive. Labels: The Early November. This is a two song 7 inch from Portugal. The songs on the 7 inch are a mix between the style they played on Church Mouth and the one they did on W:YV! Both songs are great PtM songs and are well worth the download.
The Pines 2. The Bloodgiver - Bear vs. Shark - 1653 (CD). Labels: Portugal the Man. I really like this EP a lot more than their latest album I could never really get into it. Oh well, maybe I'm just mad because they left behind their Get Up Kids influenced sound and just went for straight up pop. If you ever have a chance to see this band live, do it because they're awesome.
