Counterparts - Tragedy Will Find Us (Pure Noise Records) 2015
Tragedy Will Find Us, the new beast of an album from Ontario-based Counterparts was described by them as being about hitting “rock bottom.” Dudes, thank you so much for letting us know about that, because we’re so happy to be together with you guys in the same boat. Sometimes being at “rock bottom” is a good thing, things get emotional, angry enough to kill some ghosts and everything goes messy, massive and no such thing as an expiration date regarding the music. So, Counterparts once again show us what’s like when strong and emotional lyrical angst clashes with crushing heavy riffs, Tragedy Will Find Us is an emotional rollercoaster of an album and Brendan Murphy’s desperate screams can really make goosebumps. This is their perfect and logical next step, with the right amount of heaviness and melody, evolving their own signature sound into this so damn prolific genre.
