The Sound of Animals Fighting

These guys are a strangely catchy, experimental band. The Sound of Animals Fighting is considered a "supergroup" bringing together Circa Survive's Anthony Green, Chiodos' Craig Owens, Rich Zahniser of The Hippos, Alexander William Bentley of The Autumns, and several member's of the bands Finch and Rx Bandits. The band only performed four live shows, as they were definitely a studio band. During their live performances, they had up to 12 member's on stage, each who had contributed to at least one of the albums. The Sound of Animals Fighting isn't the usual band who consists of a constant four, five, six, or however many members a regular band has. They constantly had new musician's coming and going, contributing to songs or albums. In my own opinion, this created something new and interesting.

They released a total of three albums entitled: Tiger and the Duke (2005), Lover, the Lord Has Left Us... (2006), and The Ocean and the Sun (2008). They also released a DVD in 2007 entitled We Must Become the Change We Want to See. I'd like to give a list of all the member's who have contributed to this band's music, but I know nobody would read it and it would take up a lot of time and space. So I'll skip that part and get right to some songs...

"The Heretic"
This is a slow song, but feels very emotional to me. I hope at least someone will appreciate it.

"Act I: Chasing Suns"

"Another Leather Lung"
This one is apparently the official music video.

"Act II: All is Ash or the Light Shining Through It" (Live)
From their DVD.

And that's all for today...Keep Rockin'!

  4. I think I like these guys better than 90% of the rest of the stuff you posted, but I'm a sucker for clean vocals with a strong melody.

  5. Catchy and good - you have a nice ear for this stuff - plus it looks like you do a good amount of research!

  7. This is really interesting stuff, they have taken the best from each home band and woven it into something unique.
