Label: Temporary Residence There’s something special about Envy; something so profound and insightful that it surpasses all orthodoxy, transcending all stereotypes, and forges its place as a rare gem. Nothing about Envy is conventional, and with that being said, it’s hard to place them in any specific genre (screamo seems to be the preferred stereotype). Envy's 2003 epic release, A Dead Sinking Story, widens the gap of convention with its intriguing stylistic diversity, raw, emotive vocals, and its ability to create entrap its listener into a subduing atmosphere lulling him into the brilliance that is Envy. Despite any potential criticisms, any person who thinks he or she may be interested in Envy should give A Dead Sinking Story a listen. In my case, it opened me up to a whole new musical genre and way of thinking entirely. No longer did we think of “loud bands” as noise, but something meaningful, something beautiful, and yet something so painfully emotional and raw. A Dead Sinking Story is a perfect example of what Envy is capable of doing musically, and is arguably their greatest achievement to date.
