Thrice is a band that has developed a cult like following since it’s inception. The interesting thing about Thrice though is their evolution of sound throughout their records. They started with the sound of a punk band, then moved in a harder direction which gained loyalty with their fist pumping fans. The past three of Thrice’s records have shifted course yet again, moving in a more melodic direction, a bit more ambient but still with energy and power.
The thing about Dustin Kensrue, frontman of Thrice, is the dynamic of his voice. He can go from powerful yells, to harmonious ballads from one song to the next, carrying his rhaspy, unique voice throughout.
Major/Minor is the band’s eighth major release, and it’s good. Again, a different direction from their last album but in a direction that you want to go. Take a listen for yourself. Below is one of my favorite tracks from the album, ‘Treading Paper’, which has the most reminiscent of the old Thrice combined with the newer sounds.
