Broken Bones and Bloody Kisses (Onedaysavior)
by Scott Hefflon

Yup, sounds like Grade, Glasseater, Saves the Day, and The Beautiful Mistake. That is to say Boys Night Out sing, they scream, they yearn, they rock out. It also means the singer misses a lot of the higher notes, sounds 18 (both in cracky voice and maturity of lyric-writing), howls pretty well, and the songs show a hint of "hey, metal really is less claustrophobic than hardcore, huh?" Broken Bones and Bloody Kisses is the band's debut EP, and their Ferret full-length is coming out, or out already. BNO is more listenable than many of their post-hardcore screaming/whiny-emo peers, but that's not saying much. Kinda don't understand yet another decent yet interchangeable band playing MxPx and Thursday styles and neglecting the entire concept of mid-range (hey, maybe they could actually hit the notes that way).
