Smoke Notes

Having reclaimed their rightful name, and delivered a set of blistering shows in late 2004 and early 2005 (including their outstanding BDO showing), Shihad are now firmly back in the swing of things. Certainly the 'Alive EP', released at the start of 2005, showed the band had a desire to return to their earlier music making ethics, as well as plenty of energy to burn, and on first listen, this pleasing aesthetic has been carried over to 'Love Is The New Hate'. Although things begin with the introspective "None Of The Above", it is quickly back to business as usual with "Empty Shell", "Day Will Come" and "All The Young Fascists" proving the boys have lost none of their invigorating sonic punch. Proceedings then head into radio single territory with "Saddest Song In The World" which should get plenty of airplay on release. Things immediately pick up again with the amped-up "Big Future", quickly followed by "Shot In The Head" and "Dark Times". These latter two tracks seem to typify much of what will ultimately make this album a success (and yes I do believe this is the album which will finally take the band to record sales nirvana). While still accessible in a "pacifier" type way, there is ample evidence of a more mature and unified approach to songwriting, meaning that Shihad's trademark sonic wallop is no longer compromised for a more accessible musicality. This gives the songs a more natural and confident flow. "Traitor" punishes perfectly, "Stop" heads into radio single territory again, while first single "Alive" sounds perfect in this album context, before album closer "Guts And The Glory" slows proceedings nicely. Producer GGGarth is again on board, but with production credits also going to the band, this is perhaps Shihad's most "natural" sounding album to date. Like I mentioned earlier, this should sell truckloads - it deals to longtime fans perfectly yet has enough sonic variation to deservedly take it to mainstream success - and without compromise. Ultimately this sounds like the album the band wanted to make, and as fans what more can we ask? Recommended.
