POST-HARDCORE CRASHES TOP 20

The April ’08 release of the second installment in Thrice’s double EP concept disc, The Alchemy Index Vol. III & IV (Vol. I&II was released in October, ’07) has officially stomped its way into the top 20. The good news for the band that was founded in 1998 by guitarist/vocalist Dustin Kensrue and guitarist Teppei Teranishi while they were in high school, not to mention all their sweaty, scenester-followers with their sleeve tattoos and ear plugs, is that Thrice just might be the band to thrust the fast-paced, high-decibel post-hardcore sound to a mainstream level. The band’s original idea was to let all four discs go at once, with each disc offering six tracks representing one of the four classical elements: Fire, Water, Earth, and Air. Churning out a 4-disc concept project proved to be something of a challenge as detailed in the band’s blog they wrote detailing the process.
