'Long Live,' The Chariot 

Spoken word, harp and vibraphone — odd, but welcome guests to this hardcore album.

  • The Chariot

Those of you who were lucky enough to make it into the Seaside when the Chariot played in October know these boys can put on a show. While the energy of their live show doesn’t exactly translate on this album, Long Live gives listeners a pretty good idea of the chaos that is the Chariot.

“The City” is your typical metalcore track, with lead singer Josh Scogin (ex-Norma Jean) screaming over multiple guitar riffs and group vocals closing out the song. “David de la Hoz,” on the other hand, is a four-minute epic that begins with Scogin’s signature growl, before transitioning into spoken-word poetry from Dan Smith of Listener. Guitars and drums continue to build, all culminating with a piano, harp and vibraphone trio.

The overall sound gets a little redundant by the end of the album, but on a song-by-song basis, Long Live is one of the most unique albums you’ll hear all year.
