'Long Live,' The Chariot 

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

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.
