      Band Bio –
      BYD hail from Worcester, Massachusetts , U.S.A and are a 5 piece hardcore band that have gone through many line-up changes 8 to be precise the most recent being the vocalist Mat Bruso left to pursue a career has a school teacher this leading to him being replaced by Michael Crafter formally of I killed the prom queen from Adelaide Australia, Crafter only lasted 2 months and left citing homesickness.
      The band are currently headlining venues across the U.K

      Beauty And The Breakdown –
      On the review of this album I’m not going to do a track by track review has the band basically stay to the same formula and the songs don’t really stray that far from each other.
      The album’s song titles are inspired by children fairy tales such has Glass slipper(Cinderella), Let your hair down(Rapunzel), Enchanted rose(Beauty and the beast)and Mirror, mirror(Snow White).
      I think the album should have been called the beast and the breakdown has that would have been a more appropriate title has there is no beauty here this is a monster of an album that’s harsh, abrasive and choke full of groove orientated breakdowns that could snap necks, chugging guitars and double bass drums drive with energy and passion throughout this album.
      Mat Bruso the vocalist at the time of recording has a voice that you’ll either love or hate with it being very harsh and throaty with no singing just pure anger, his lyrics range from his childhood to lost loves but not once does he sound like a self pitying person that feels sorry for himself.

      My Opinion –
      I first heard of this band whilst reading the Nottingham evening post who reviewed this album I sat there thinking this must be a manufactured American band until I heard one of their songs on mtv2 and at that point what the hell was the evening post doing reviewing a band like this had they all gone crazy this is not linkin park this band is not pop/rock band this band are heavy, ugly and in your face.
      Overall if you’re a fan of bands like throwdown, pantera, and hatebreed you’ll have heard of this band maybe not there music but the name and if you are a fan of those bands who have not heard BYD you’ll love this album.
      And their first two You had me at hello and Cover your tracks.
      If your a metal fan Go buy now this instance!
