POZ Review: Four Year Strong - Go Down In History
by Becky Kovach, edited by Erik van Rheenen
“It’s time to set the record straight/Then hopefully you don’t just fade out/Doing what we have to to survive/I’ve been waiting far too long to give up all hope/That my heart is strong enough to stay alive.”
These are the opening lines of Four Year Strong’s new EP Go Down In History. Clearly this is a band that prefers to cut straight to the point rather than their waste time beating around the bush – they make it known from the very beginning that Four Year Strong is here to give it all they’ve got. And each track, from opener “What’s In The Box?” to closer “So You’re Saying There’s A Chance…” embodies a no-holds-barred attitude that only bolsters the idea of Four Year Strong’s determination and dauntlessness.
“What’s In The Box?” was the perfect opening for Four Year Strong’s return — it features sturdy drumming, an acidic breakdown, and one of the band’s most accessible choruses. Not to mention they flat out tell anyone who will listen that they only way to take them out, is to tear them down completely (“If you try to take me out/You best break all my bones”). The song is bold and unafraid, exactly the kind of track one would expect from a powerhouse like Four Year Strong.
Personally, I’ve always been impressed by the band’s ability to create textures within their songs by layering powerful guitars, and they’ve similarly impressed with the songs on Go Down In History. “Living Proof Of A Stubborn Youth” utilizes sharp alternate picking and soaring chords, while “Tread Lightly” opts for metallic riffs and sinister melodies.
