This split is a solid release and will help the bands gain more ground, yet I was expecting more. With both acts being so young, I cannot wait to hear their future releases.

There is most likely a reason why many people probably haven’t heard much about this band, although I feel they have great potential they seem to fall a little bit short, each song starts off promising with intentions to be a great song but I am left disappointed. I continued through the album almost hoping that they would live up to the potential shown in the beginning of the record but it doesn’t seem to happen.

Clocking in at just over half an hour, 'Silence Is Betrayal,' is a straight up hardcore album that will not satisfy old hardcore fans, but will be more than adequate for the younger generations that are not aware of the records that came before it.

I guess a 5 song EP like this one is intended to give fans a bit of a taste of what’s to come before the band embarks on another full length album, but with this, i think 5 songs is all you need to make up your mind. I have to admit, I am a fan on post-hardcore music, so this record was not terrible for me, however with saying that there really isn’t anything overly unique about this. With so many bands currently in the scene, I have definitely heard this sound before, nothing really special here.

This is one of Senses Fail’s finest moments however they should be warned, this is the last time they can release an album like this, if a drastic progression isn’t made on the next record, then many a fan’s patience will certainly be lost.

With the pop-punk scene so full in recent times its refreshing to hear Stay Ahead Of The Weather’s unique Chicago pop-punk sound add that together with the great songs on this EP and the somewhat of a super-group line-up this band is definitely one to keep an eye one.

EP’s are interesting case studies. Does half the content mean half the effort? Silverstein deliver a consistent five track offering, which bodes well for their forthcoming album. However, as a general statement, this release is not going to be banging down too many doors.

‘Wonderland’ is a reflection of contemporary metalcore’s current standing. This studio album will offer momentary points of interest and is delivered with clear and honest intent. Gladly crank it loud but just don’t expect much innovation and understated complexity here.

Overall this is a relatively good album, however there is not really anything special about it, there are a few standout songs including "Losing Sleep" and "Friday Night" however it does take a couple of listens to get into the album as the majority of the songs are not what Valencia fans are use to...however with saying that, it’s not always a bad thing.

Underoath have changed, but it is for the better, and is well suited to the fan’s that have more than likely grown up a little, and will appreciate the heavier, more mature, direction the band have taken.
