From a Second Story Window biography
FROM A SECOND STORY WINDOW is a progressive metal/hardcore band from Ohio formed by Sean Vandegrift (vocals), Derek Vasconi (guitars), Joe Sudrovic (bass), Nick Huffman (drums) and Rob Hileman (guitars) in 2002 under the name of Aphasia but later in 2003 decided to change it to their current one. Their music has been characterized by the constant use of strange keys, complex rhythms and the use of both clean and death/black metal vocal style.

In 2003 the band released their debut EP entitled "The Cassandra Complex" and later in 2004 it was re-released under the title of "Not One Word Has Been Omitted". For their next release vocalist Sean Vandegrift left the band and Will Jackson took over, which incorporated a varied vocal style including clean vocals rather than having an entire album with screamed or growled vocals as was their debut EP. In 2006 saw the release of their first full length: "Delenda" through Metal Blade Records and Black Market Activities Records and was followed by continuous touring throughout North America and Europe. It was around this time that guitarist Derek Vasconi decided to part ways with the band and was replaced by Paul Misko. After the tour the band went on a break to complete the writing of their second full length entitled "Conversations" released in 2008. After the release of Conversations in August of the same year the band announced their split up.

In the time the band was together their music continuously reflected the changes in influences and various attitudes within the band and they would simply describe their music as "music created for attention-deficit people".Highly recommended for fans of the genre.

2 stars 'Not One Word Has Been Omitted' - From A Second Story Window (4/10)

The genre of mathcore has never been something I've been much enthused by, and From A Second Story Window is no exception. Here is a band who brand themselves as 'music for attention-deficit people', and if nothing else, they live up to their name. Although their debut EP 'Not One Word Has Been Omitted' is broken up into five tracks, From A Second Story Window takes the handful of musical ideas they have and tosses them into a disjointed mess. Barring the cringeworthy vocals and tendency to lean towards the breakdown-reminiscent guitar chugging, the EP could have been great, but some serious problems hold this talented act back.

Although they play a style of music I am usually averse to, FASSW are certainly skilled musicians. Even when it comes to the chug-chug guitar lines, the music is played tightly. There are even sparse sections throughout the EP where the band gets quite technical. However, these moments of grace are made few and far between, instead giving it to a fairly consistent sound that falls somewhere between deathcore, grind, and math rock. The tempo is not quite slow enough to be called a 'breakdown', but that's the impression I get from many of the band's rhythms. The distorted adolescent scream of Sean Vandegrift does not help things either; in fact, the vocals here are one of the chief elements that can make the EP difficult to listen to, at times. They are garbled to the point where they would not sound out of place in a cybergrind project, but still maintain the soulless wisp of 'core' vocals that I dislike so much.

Thankfully, there are aspects that indicate to me that From A Second Story Window are a pretty talented group, regardless of shortcomings. As I've said, the music is performed quite well, and when it comes to their math rock sounds, FASSW incorporate dissonance moderately enough into their sound to make it work. 'No Word Has Been Omitted' is not an entirely hopeless effort, but there are enough negatives to have me think twice before returning to it.

— First review of this album —
3 stars Saw that no one had reviewed this album and figured I might as well be the first. Very, very interesting album. Be forewarned, though: if you do not like death growling than I would not recommend this album. The average sound of the album is extremely intense vocals over interesting guitar and rhythm parts. Probably the closest point of reference is BTBAM's Colors, but, to be honest, it's not as interesting or good overall. There are touches of dissonance and avant-garde influence throughout, and that is what makes the album interesting. Finally, the album is not over-long, which works in its favor-it stays interesting throughout, and the (relatively) short songs mean that there are no bland or drawn out boring sections.

In terms of my actual enjoyment of the music, I would give this album 4 stars, but by PA's standards I award it 3: a good and very interesting album, but not essential by any means. Recommended to fans of extreme metal who have already gone through the staples of the genre (BTBAM, Opeth, et cetera). Not recommended for those just trying to get into the genre, and certainly not recommended to those who don't like growled vocals.
