Album review: Funeral For A Friend – ‘Your History Is Mine – 2002-2009’ (Atlantic)


The lords of the Welsh emo scene survey their domain

I many ways the Welsh rockers couldn’t have timed this any better. Just as bands such as Alexisonfire and Cancer Bats were threatening their standing as lords of the (slam) dance, this best of (plus an odds-and-sods bonus disc) serves as an excellent reminder of FFAF‘s innovation. Featuring classic melodies ([b]’Into Oblivion (Reunion)'[/b]) and riffs heavier than Satan’s undercarriage, it’s a tuneful affair. Better yet are the four punk-tinged new tracks which all point to a bright future.
