Every Time I Die - Low Teens

Prepare for carnage.
Every Time I Die - Low Teens
Published: 9:48 am, September 23, 2016
Prepare for carnage.

Label: Epitaph
Released: September 23rd 2016
Rating: ★★★★

Albums can often be launched into the world with hyperbole. But in the case of Every Time I Die, there doesn’t seem to be such a thing any more. So few bands reach eight albums, and even fewer reach the landmark with such a chokehold on quality, that the hype is entirely believable.


Charged by some truly personal matters after Keith Buckley’s wife was taken to hospital with life threatening pregnancy complications, ‘Low Teens’ is impassioned, aggressive, and what you’d hope for from an ETID album down to the last drop. 'Glitches' is ferocious, ‘C++ (Love Will Get You Killed)’ stands out, where ‘Two Summers’ has a glorious swing to it. ‘Religion of Speed’ is an epic that goes everywhere from being an off-kilter eerie nightmare soundtrack, to downright rage.


Every Time I Die are one of the most consistent bands of recent years. Not the kind that can be tired and samey, but the kind of consistent where they’ve had the pedal flush to the floor for years and are fairly certain that they’re not going to be releasing the pressure any time soon. 
They’re always up for touring new songs because there’s a revitalised energy for new songs – it’s not a stretch to see how ‘Low Teens’ will fare. Prepare for carnage. Heather McDaid
