Review: The Color Morale – Know Hope

Rated:

3/5

Metalcore sextet The Color Morale never strays too far from the tried-and-true tropes of their subgenre on full-length No. 3, but still manages to craft tunes that are passionate and memorable, mixing breakdown-fuelled mosh, noisy dissonance, and catchy choruses on wide-ranging tracks like “Learned Behavior.” Frontman Garrett Rapp’s vocals run the gamut from hardcore bellows to soulful crooning, the latter reminiscent of Jonny Craig (Dance Gavin Dance, Emarosa, et al). Given that The Color Morale aren’t setting out to break new ground with Know Hope, they do succeed in making a record fans will love. DAVID McKENNA
