The Saddest Landscape - You Will Survive Cover

A wonderfully passionate record

First record in seven years for the band too easily banded into the emo / screamo bracket, The Saddest Landscape offer so much more than the genre is easily stigmatised for. Andy Maddox’s screams are ones verging on a tearful breakdown throughout ‘You Will Not Survive’, slight elements of progression even creep in showing the band’s creative aspirations. Where the real beauty of the band lies, however, is in the lyrics, full of retrospect and hope: “We live our lives like the guitar breaks in, beautiful and melodic and ready to explode, and God damn, we looked good”. A wonderfully passionate record.
