In This Style 

Sarcasm (Independent)

You can almost taste the angst from the opening of In This Style's debut </sarcasm>. While these Dartmouth prog-rockers deliver a hefty helping of the teenage delicacy with lyrics like "hate is beauty," the real treat is when they move from heavier chords into melodic, angular riffs. It's then that the music effectively translates more sincere emotions. An emphasis on atmosphere gives heart to more aggressive elements on standout tracks like "Epiphany pt.1" and "pt.2." Progressive rock isn't my favourite genre, but </sarcasm>'s soundscape provides quite a guilty pleasure while offering something more for swoop-banged boys and black-clad girls. –Mike Landry
