VIEW/BUY LP VERSION 
Boston's Eulcid walk the razor’s edge of artistry and aggression, capturing the perfect balance of two disparate aesthetics. The Wind Blew All The Fires Out is a breathtaking release comprised of jagged riffs that swirl, scrape and crash; discordant leads that flutter and waver around the melodic aggression and frayed vocals of guitarist/vocalist Mike Law, and inspired musicianship that walks the line between understated and complex. Tracks such as "Single Sender," "Reaction Impulse Theory" and "Perfect" are as much indie-based noise rock as they are journeys through divergent sonic soundscapes. However, it is a journey that flows together seamlessly while building upon swirling guitars that break into post punk fury, metallic noise and discordant excess, yet retains an underlying thread of melody. Eulcid's greatest strength is their ability to explore divergent tangents within the context of any given song, be it harsh, restrained or progressive, without ever losing their way, infusing them with an emotion and anthemic quality lacking in much “aggressive” music. And while members of Eulcid have garnered previous recognition with Cave In offshoots such as New Idea Society and Kid Kilowatt, The Wind Blew All The Fires Out is a breathtaking album that deserves to be recognized as greater than the sum of its parts, or its members other achievements.
