Ice Nine Kills – The Silver Scream | album review

ink-tss

Ice Nine Kills is a band that has flown under many people’s radar for over a decade now. A band known by name, but never receiving recognition they really deserves. They’ve always been doing things their own way, putting  themselves on the map with their last release, Every Trick In The Book, which was a huge hit in the scene of heavy music.

October 5th, 2018, marked a new era for the band. The latest album from the band, The Silver Scream, is something unlike many people have heard. Every song is based off a popular horror film, everything from Halloween to The Crow. Ice Nine Kills didn’t hold anything back on this album.

The first two singles, The American Nightmare (A Nightmare On Elm Street) and Thank God It’s Friday (Friday The 13th) let fans know that they weren’t going soft anytime soon. A catchy chorus mixed with heavier verses, and a breakdown everyone could love, people knew to catch Ice Nine Kills on Warped Tour 2018, and to keep an eye on the band until October.

I’ve listened to the entire album, and now I can’t stop myself from listening. Lighter tracks, like Love Bites (An American Werewolf In London) and A Grave Mistake (The Crow) offer incredible songwriting and gorgeous singing. On the opposite end of that spectrum, songs like Stabbing In The Dark (Halloween), Merry Axe-Mas (Silent Night, Deadly Night) and Rocking The Boat (Jaws) hit hard with fun guitar riffs, energetic drumming, and some unclean vocals we’ve rarely seen from Charnas. The references to classic lines from the movies give every song its own little flare of nostalgia.  Many songs come completely out of left field, It Is The End (It) sticking out to me the most. Creepy voice acting, leading into chaotic and heavy verses, the song features ska punk band, Less Than Jake, offering some backing tracks to elevate the heavy guitars to a new level. The song makes you wanna move in any way you can.

The album shows tons of growth from the small metal band. Their ability to create and not take themselves 100% serious is obvious. The use voice acting, other genres, wordplay, and fun movie references, The Silver Scream gives you the creeps in the best way. Nostalgia and love for horror films makes my love for this album so much more personal. Ice Nine Kills has come a very long way, I have a feeling they can only go up from here.

Rage on the Stage Tour 2017 | Review & Photos

October 28th was a very special day to me, it was the first time I was able to photograph one of my favorite bands. I’m very grateful to have experienced so much positivity, not every band is going to have management as amazing as I Prevail.

Escape the Fate was incredible. It was my first time seeing and meeting them. It was my first time shooting low light, so sadly not every picture turned out amazing. (Shout out to Em for being her own worst critic, you will only continue to improve) The Word Alive preformed an almost bone chilling set. Every person in the room knew the words. Telle Smith nearly moved me to tears when he sang. They are my absolute favorite band, so shooting them was an honor. Finally, the main event, I Prevail hit the stage. They have been one of my favorite bands since they started, so I was a little nervous. I didn’t see the complete set, but what I saw was amazing. Lead singer, Brian, sadly injured a vocal cord, but guitarist Dylan did just as amazing as I could hope. The set was rowdy, loud, and high energy. All anyone can want in a show. For my first REAL concert experience, I couldn’t ask for more. This was one of the most well put together tours I’ve attended. It’s certainly not my last time seeing any of the bands.
