Canadian five-piece Alexisonfire hold a prominent place in the current post-hardcore scene. Their self-titled debut in 2002 was proof to everyone that this genre was more than enjoyable when done correctly and also set the bar high for the swarm of bands that were to follow. The quintet went onto release two more albums, ‘Watch Out!’ and ‘Crisis’, both of which were impressive and highlighted how the Canadians could reinvent their sound but still keep the structure and style that their fans loved. Their latest release ‘Old Crows/Young Cardinals’ unfortunately does not stick to the band’s tradition.
