Album Notes
THE DROWNERS: Cease To Be - on Listening-Post Music

The Drowners First New CD in Four Years!

Special US release includes video for Vengeance and Bad Blood

At the place where pop meets rock and where melodies intertwine with raw power, thats where we find THE DROWNERS. Shaped by the extreme weather conditions of northern Sweden and the boredom/comfort of small city life, the band emerged in the middle of the Britpop explosion in the early nineties. They embraced that whole era with their feet still firmly rooted in American alternative rock with influences from Husker Du, REM, The Del Fuegos, The Sidewinders, The Replacements and so on. Add to that a small portion of hard rock and you have the lethal cocktail that is the foundation of THE DROWNERS.

The new album "Cease To Be" continues on the somewhat darker lyrical theme set on the previous album, "Muted To A Whisper". Melancholy is the word that springs to mind in an effort to sum the vibe of the album, although a couple of tracks sport a take on the lighter sides of existence as well. The rough riffs and soaring drums are ever present, mixed with plenty of sweet vocal harmonies. Songwriting and lyrics are still the main ingredients though, delivered by vocal and rhythm with more punch and energy than ever before.

Crafted in the basement, a product of our neighborhood from idea to realization, it's finally done. It took three years of writing, recording, engineering and contemplating, before it was deemed fit for you.

Through our system, into your sound system, we proudly give you "Cease To Be".

I just put this CD on a little while ago and just finished track 10 and I felt compelled to announce that so far I have been extraordinarily impressed with every song on this CD so far. I don't think there is a bad song on this CD! It's very rare that I can say that about many CDs nowadays, but this one deserves to be classified as a "gem". Nice job, The Drowners! Oh crap... I spoke too soon. I don't care for the last song. Well, I guess 11 out of 12 isn't bad! :)

Can I post another review?
I've never posted a second review, but son of a bitch! This CD is friggin' awesome!! :) Why in the world would there not be audio samples for the first 11 songs? My two absolute favorites on this CD are "Words (Don't Come Easy)" and "Perfect Girlfriend", and no one can hear what they sound like on here. How is it possible that a CD can be this good? When is a live DVD going to be available? Can I pre-order 10 right away? :) Matt Albright August 24, 2007

perfect collection of melodic nirvana
"cease to be" is an amazing musical experience.
one of the best cd's i've heard this year, and i've heard many.
based on the excellence of this cd along with their previous two, i would have to say that 'the drowners'
are on top of power pop mountain and i don't think they will be descending any time soon.
buy this cd; it will be the best $10.00 you've spent in a long time.
