Sarasota, Florida, is known more for spring baseball and retirement communities than it is for the kind of vibrant, dynamic screamo that Burden of a Day serves up on their 2008 release, BLESSED BE OUR EVER AFTER. Despite their reported Christian leanings, there's nothing forgiving about emotionally intense songs such as "Sorry Seacrest It's Casey's Countdown," which runs the gamut from twisting leads to shimmering vocal harmonies to vicious sheet metal thunder breakdowns. Despite existing for a mere four years prior to this release, Burden of a Day plays with the confidence and passion of a band that's been together far longer.
