Breakup: Means

One of my favorite Christian metalcore/hardcore bands Means have decided to call it quits. I think we could feel this one coming, as Means just couldn't seem to get any momentum. They're last tour saw them opening up for another recent break-up; Life In Your Way on a very small time tour. Means have announced on last tour through Canada and parts of the Midwest before the end of the year, which will be their last.

I really like the simplicity of Means and their writing, their sound is very straightforward and heavy. Their first full length album, Sending You Strength was great, very heavy yea melodic and catchy in parts. Earlier this year they released their second full-length To Keep Me From Sinking to mixed reviews, myself included. The album just wasn't as well done, you could sense that the writing was forced and that maybe Means was running out of creativity.

If you get the chance to catch these guys before their done you should, otherwise check out Sending You Strength for some really good metalcore/hardcore positive music.
