Album Review: Everything Ablaze – Belle Haven

Everything Ablaze by Belle Haven

#aotd is Everything Ablaze by Belle Haven. The album sounds reminiscent of DTGL-era Underoath with some great technical playing especially from the drummer. These guys do heavy really well but when they branch out into clean choruses and melodic passages for the most part it just doesn’t work. The clean vocals on this album are pretty average and are over-utilized. Also the poor mixing does a huge injustice to the great technical playing on display here. I am still excited to hear more from these guys because there are some good spots on this album but unfortunately this debut has way too many missteps and pitfalls to recommend.
