Like their debut, Rattlesnake! relies more on the band's penchant for well structured and memorable songs than being inventive in any way. Only this time, instead of drawing from the likes of Thrice and Finch, A Static Lullaby have decided to draw from the same Southern-Rock influenced well as Every Time I Die and Maylene and the Sons of Disaster. Thats not to say that band's original sound is completely gone. The same catchy choruses and sing/scream trade offs are still there, just this time around they are beefed up and grittier. To put it simply, A Static Lullaby's balls have dropped.
With Rattlesnake! A Static Lullaby have proven that they are back at full strength and still have something to contribute to the modern Post-Hardcore scene. To those that are unfamiliar with the band, Rattlesnake! is a perfect place to start. And to those that gave up on the band over the last few years of missteps, give it a try because A Static Lullaby sound surprisingly good with cajones.
