By the time Atreyu's 2002 debut full-length SUICIDE NOTES AND BUTTERFLY KISSES was released, they'd already built a devoted following in their native Orange County, California, with their polished yet punishing brand of metalcore. An EP, FRACTURES IN THE FACADE OF YOUR PORCELAIN BEAUTY, had established the band's sonic blueprint, and Atreyu reworked three songs from the EP to place among the newer material on SUICIDE NOTES.
The group's hallmarks-furiously churning riffs, double-bass thunder, and tortured screamo vocals-arrive fully formed here. Titles like "Living Each Day Like You're Already Dead" and "Someone's Standing On My Chest" suggest lead singer and lyricist Alex Vartkatzas's penchant for violent psychological anguish and anger, feelings reinforced by the brutal nature of the music. The singles "Ain't Love Grand" and "Lip Gloss and Black" are album highlights, not least for their melodic choruses sung by drummer Brandon Saller, but there isn't a weak track on the disc. Atreyu would go on to refine their unique sound, but this is the album that started it all, and it's still one of their best.
