“Chasing Shadows”

Without being prejudice the name of this band sounds like one of the thousands of metalcore acts that has popped up in the last couple of years. But there is more to a band than the name. So perhaps this isn’t a new metalcore act but something completely different. And I guess I wasn’t too off track in thinking so. But in all honesty this is much more hardcore than it is metalcore. And again there’s that word post to describe the music. I’m not much for using trendy words and is therefore very reluctant taking the word post in my mouth but if there is one word to describe the metal/hardcore of ASIDEFROMADAY then it is post. There are no 3 minutes blasts here. You get treated to songs that linger on for what seems like an eternity. This is as agonizing as it can get listening to music. But somewhere in all this I find myself liking it. Anders Ekdahl
