A Match and Some Gasoline based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
The Suicide Machines seem to take a step towards their roots with A Match and Some Gasoline. Their energy reminds me of their earlier title Destruction by Definition, which is a very good thing. They seem to drift farther away from their more poppy vocals in their self-titled cd. Your Silence definitely brings their hardcore influences to the table, while Did You Ever Get a Feeling of Dread? and Kaleidoscope bring their ska-core influences. It isn't their best, but if you like ska/punk, I recommend it.
I was listening to the CD Warped Tour Compiliation 2003 and I was an avid screamo fan at the time. The first song I heard was Your Silence from the Suicide Machines off the album A Match and Some Gasoline. The song blew away. It mixed the back and forth screaming vocals of Jason and Dan and managed to stick some ska riffs in between. The song instantly became one of my favorites. I did some research on the Suicide Machines and found that they had been around for quite some time but had been primarily ska. I'm not a big fan of ska music but Your Silence was such an amazing song, I couldn't give up on the Suicide Machines. I also got heard some pretty horrid reviews from some of my friends about the new album, but I decided to get it. My first impression was a good one. The CD mixed ska with screamo and even featured a acoustic track. The lyrics focused mainly around government and worldy problems like Corporate America and war. A couple songs had an emo feel which was good. It was a pretty decent CD. The only problem I could find about it was that some of the ska songs sounded the same, but most ska does sound alot a like. There really is not much to say about this CD. Like I said, an excellent mix of two styles you would never imagine being together. I hope the Suicide Mahcines continue to make excellent music and do not stray from the style of screamo.
