Simply put, Envys strengths are also their weaknesses. They have literally perfected their niche of music and they will never deviate from that. They almost make me want to say the one blasphemous thing that I hate when people say: All their songs sound the same. Its almost like a way for people to dismiss something great (Tool) but here, besides the few standout records, they've done a lot of the same thing repeatedly. The thing is, this is a solid record.

envy is a japanese Post-Hardcore band and their latest releases The Fallen Crimson, is a solid record but ultimately doesn't impress me as much. Maybe if i spoke Japanese I would enjoy this more but for now it is some solid post-hardcore which i will return to but it isn't a highlight of 2020.

Yay! 300th review

Envy is a Japanese screamo and post-rock band, and this is their seventh, and newest album, The Fallen Crimson. Envy is a band who I was not familiar with up until this point, but this album did impress me. I think that the heavier, more post-hardcore oriented moments are the LP's strongest, from the chunky riffs, to the occasional sludge influence, as well as the intense vocal passages.
The smoother, post-rock moments are decent, but not perfect. They are a little slow ... read more
