Let's get this out in the open; Atreyu are a mainstream melodic metal band that provide easy listening but little kudos. However, they write a damn good chorus and frankly 'Congregation Of The Damned' is hook city. It features little of the pop pretending of 'Lead Sails Paper Anchor', but plays with the boundaries of metallic ambiguity enough to snare back their disenchanted fan base - 'Bleeding Is A Luxury' case in point. Provided you don't have an unreasonable dislike of melody, you'll enjoy the majority of tracks on this album. Even if that does make you feel a bit dirty.

Nothing much matters in August other than Reading & Leeds Festivals, right? This year we really were spoilt for choice as Blink-182, You Me At Six, A Day To Remember, Sleeping With Sirens and so many more GREAT rock bands brought the festival back to its roots. Plus there was the small matter of a couple of VERY special warm-up shows from Sleeping With Sirens and Gerard Way...
