Red Sparowes - Every Red Heart Shines Toward The Red Sun

Year of release: 2006
Genre: Instrumental/Post Rock/Metal
Country: U.S.A.

01. The Great Leap Forward Poured Down Upon Us One Day Like A Mighty Storm Suddenly And Furiously Blinding Our Senses
02. We Stood Transfixed In Blank Devotion As Our Leader Spoke To Us, Looking Down On Our Mute Faces With A Great, Raging, And Unseeing Eye
03. Like The Howling Glory Of The Darkest Winds, This Voice Was Thunderous And The Words Holy, Tangling Their Way Around Our Hearts And Clutching Our Innocent Awe
04. A Message Of Avarice Rained Down And Carried Us Away To False Dreams Of Endless Riches
05. Annihilate The Sparrow, That Stealer Of Seed, And Our Harvests Will Abound; We Will Watch Our Wealth Flood In
06. And By Our Own Hand Did Every Last Bird Lie Silent In Their Puddles, The Air Barren Of Song As The Clouds Drifted Away. For Kill
07. Millions Starved And Became Skinnier And Skinnier While Our Leaders Became Fatter And Fatter
08. Finally As That Blazing Sun Shone Down Upon Us Did We Know That True Enemy Was The Voice Of Blind Idolatry; And Only Then Did We Begin To Think For Ourselves

In a few words:
Red Sparowes is another super-group of post rock/metal, with members of Isis, Neurosis and other less known bands. The album is really great. It has nice well developed melodies and structures. The long titles are used in order to describe the atmosphere that the songs creating, since there are no vocals.

Personal highlights:
"Like The Howling Glory...", "Millions Starved And Became..." and "Finally As That Blazing Sun..."
