Envy biography
Formed in 1991-92, Envy has been one of the most prominent acts of the Japanese Hardcore scene. Over the years the band slowly were polishing their sound and adding a Post-Rock influences not too far from that of Mono or Mogwai while still being at heart a Hardcore / Screamo band. The combination of these two genres (Screamo and Post-Rock) can be better heard in their latest releases and most notably their 2006 release, "Insomniac Doze", where screaming vocals are accompanied by intense climaxes and spoken words take place side by side with soft guitar textures. All of this is wrapped up in an dramatic and emotional melodies.

They've released various singles and albums through different labels and have toured with Isis, This Machine Kills, Mogwai and Yaphett Kotto. They have also made several split albums with other Screamo / Post-Hardcore bands.

If you've never been a fan of the Screamo genre, but enjoy the intensity and grandiosity of post-rock bands then Envy is the band to get you into the genre.

A Dead Sinking Story
Envy Post Rock/Math rock

Review by burritounit
Special Collaborator Honorary Collaborator

2 stars A Dead Sinking Story is definitely one of the most dark, emotional albums I've ever heard. Its powerful post rock melodies and hardcore rasp vocals make this album a unique dark, emotional experience. Clearly I must say that I don't have a clue of what the lyrics mean and evidently I'm not a fan of screamo. In fact I've never liked them, but the melodies are so intensifying that I could hardly ignore the vocals.

Each song is filled with passages filled with angry vocal lines and small post rock sections in which the singer speaks (most of the time) oddly instead of singing. But what caught most my attention were the guitar melodies. I think this would be the most standout point of this album ever since the vocals get a bit exhausting after a while. Even in the soft sections Tetsuya Fukagawa has to include the harsh screamo vocals and in my opinions it ruins the whole atmosphere (something I couldn't ignore)

The first song that caught my attention was in fact first song in the album: Chain Wondering Deeply. It's hardcore guitar riffing and the post rock like passages sound extremely emotional and appealing. Another standout song would have to be Unrepairable Gentleness. This song unlike Chain Wondering Deeply which starts immediately in an explosive manner with very intensive guitar riffs. The next song Go Mad and Mark, though it starts with a post rock melody the vocals really ruined the experience for me here. It just sounded "nicely" up until the vocal lines start. In my opinion these are the only good songs that could make the album worth getting or even listen to. Yet in general most of the songs have the same atmosphere and based structure, going from heavy to soft and vice versa.

In overall this isn't a terrible album but the harsh screamo vocals really ruined the experience for me. That being said if you're a fan of emotional music, and don't mind angry screamo vocals you might like this one. Not highly recommended.

A 2.5 for me! Not a bad album.

All the Footprints You've Ever Left and the Fear Expecting Ahead
Envy Post Rock/Math rock

Review by Moatilliatta
Prog Reviewer

3 stars This album showcases Envy's hardcore side. They slowly evolved into a unique post-rock band rooted in hardcore, and you can hear the delay-effected guitars and soft parts implemented here and there; they work quite nicely with the band's extremely emotional music. Envy already had their own sound here - I can't think of any other hardcore band who had such raw emotion and atmosphere - and they have just continued to progress. This is definitely a solid record, but most (here especially) will prefer the more dynamic, mature, and well-produced albums that came out after this one.

A Dead Sinking Story
Envy Post Rock/Math rock

Review by Moatilliatta
Prog Reviewer

4 stars This is a very emotive release by one of the most distinctive sounds in post-rock. Envy harnesses the musical aggression and gutteral vocals of hardcore to juxtapose the chaotic and the serene & the ugly and the beautiful. A Dead Sinking Story is the group's most accomplished work to date; while its predecessor was a bit too aggressive and its successor is a bit too, well, unaggressive, this one has a near-perfect mix. While we shouldn't look down on the albums that sandwich this one, especially the latter, Insomniac Doze, we must appreciate the singularity of this release. Never before has a band melded these sounds & styles as Envy does (and they do it very well, I should add). It's unlikely that any band, even Envy themselves will make a record quite like this again.

The record is very powerful, but it is imperfect. Sometimes songs are stretched a little too long, the two soundscape tracks are mostly ineffective (also a bit too long for what they do), and the vocals could have used a bit more variety. The vocalist defaults to screaming anytime the music gets loud, and sometimes screams when it's quiet. It's not inherently bad, but the screamed vocals can get monotonous. The sung vocals are a nice addition to the soft parts, and it's difficult to imagine lead vocals sung over many of the other parts, but maybe some backing vocals would have worked very nicely. It's not up to me to say what they should have done in this regard, though. I'm happy with the vocals as they are for the most part; the only real complaint is the monotnous screamed tone.

Nevertheless, A Dead Sinking Story is a great record. It's unique and it's powerful. Comfortable fans of standard post-rock may not have a need to hear this, and if they're not into screamed vocals at all, they probably won't be converted after hearing it either. Post-rock fans looking for something fresh, and any adventurous music fan looking for something really emotional without making them look like a pansy really ought to check this out. Insomniac Doze may be the easier starting point, but A Dead Sinking Story will prove to be the more versatile and memorable of the two. In any case, the music of Envy can be a very cathartic experience, and it's cetainly worth hearing.

Thanks to chamberry for the artist addition.
