Good mourning, people. Well, not really good. Every night I bookmark and make notes of stuff I plan to write about the next day. It’s lame, but it’s my process. This is how I work, ya know? Well, I am just now getting to my note about The Carrier calling it quits. That sucks. Early last year is when I first started getting digital promos from labels and The Carrier‘s last record Blind To What Is Right was one of the first promos that I reviewed and loved last year. That album was a fantastical metallic hardcore record that I listened to a lot last year. Towards the end of the year I was totally wrapped up all of the releases that I had to go through, so me and Blind To What Is Right kinda had a falling out. I am now re-listening to the record and my mind is being blown all over again.
That is why it really sucks that The Carrier plan to end their career this March. In regards to why they have decided to break up, the band had this to say: “There are a lot of reasons that have led us to this decision, and it wasn’t an easy one. But ultimately, we all share a mutual feeling that we’re transitioning into different chapters in our lives—personally and musically.” I guess I can’t blame them for wanting to move on with their lives, but it still sucks, ya know? Well, this mournings playlist is for The Carrier. Farewell. Playlist commences after the jump.
