Rod Astorga While definitely not their best, POW! is a very solid first endeavor by math rock/post hardcore outfit Hail The Sun. If you're into what they do, and you like Wake or Elephantitis, listen to this album with lower expectations. Their stellar songwriting is here and their top notch musicianship is also present but it is clear that they haven't fully found their sound yet. Regardless, this is still a decent release with the solid hooks and catchy riffs that we've come to expect from HTS. Favorite track: Orion.

Cody Cox This came out when everyone was having fun. Hail the Sun is the only band who did well when they picked up the "accessible" post hardcore sound. POW! is very well executed. Favorite track: Crying Is Only Manly If Splinters Come Out.

Gian Rodriguez Such a strange and intense album. Post-hardcore with some Math-rock mixed in. Quality could've been better- but a fun first effort nonetheless.
Fun fact: The drummer is the vocalist! Favorite track: Railmaster.

Track Name: Ready Or Not, There I Go
Ive got those pinpoint pupils
Ive got those nodding headrolls
Ive got a dangerous pulse!!
Cut me off from this world please tourniquette

Re-draw the line, I can't stop lying about the lines im cooking.
I WISH I DIDN'T HAVE TO LIVE
Shuttup!

Its like the spoons are disappearing from the kitchen counter.
I keep them hidden in the bathroom with my newfound lover.
Getting nummer, Im my brother

My body is here but my mind is worlds away
How can I be the one, to tell you it wasn't me
everytime i said this is me, when it wasn't
Who do you trust?? Him or me??
He is Me!!!

Im disappearing in the bathroom with my newfound lover!

There goes my brain.
There goes my brain.
There goes my name!

Weep while I rot…weep while I rot!

Inside my mind, I feel perfect.
Back to real life, I feel different.

I don't know me anymore!
It means nothing at all, to take what I need:
I'll steal shit from your drawer cuz my arm is thirsty!

I've just about convinced myself that this is what I needed!

It's like the spoons are disappearing from the kitchen counter.
I keep them hidden in the bathroom with my newfound lover.
Getting number, I'm my brother.
Track Name: Dinosaur, God Hates It When We Think
This earth will burn and rot away one day.
If we're still here we'll die a painful death.
We are so different. And we think that we're more
than just animals..
But we're not, we've just got more technical with time.
The only reason I can say this is because we comprehend it and we argue just to exercise our mind!
Alas, get back!! To what you were saying about how we all have a soul.
What's a soul?? It's out of your control!

It's out of your control.
I don't know what god is, but I know what he isn't.
A white man in the clouds, who we should constantly be pleasing!

No more brainwashing for me.
Find a different host!

They're words on paper,
I'm sure that two fish couldn't read.
Too bad they had the chance to learn.

Alas, get back!! To what you were saying about how we all have a soul.
What's a soul??
It's out of your control!

Before we wrote this song, we only thought about it.
And then before the words, we only hummed the rhythm.
I'm grateful for the chance, to release all this tension.
Im coping with the thought, that we might be inventions!
Track Name: Railmaster
This state of mind's got me crazy
How could you get me so angry??
Look now, You've got me screaming!!

There's a lot going on inside my mind,
It's true I'm always lying
(Ive wondered…)Am I already dead if Im living to die?
I'll sit and listen, but I'm thinking
'bout how bad I want to open the window
and shove (shove you) right out of it!

There's no way that you could guess
what I'm about to do...

Ill cheat just to win..
Tunnel-vision type reaction!!

This state of mind's got me crazy!
How could you get me so angry?
Look now! You've got me sreaming

Laying here with my baby by my side,
but something isn't right
I forget that Im solo..who's this brunette girl?
Lets fuck anyway!
I'll use you more than your using; like the drugs that you're abusing
..it's so easy not to stop.

Hey there Facade, without your help they all would know that I'm a fraud.
It's like a game. It makes me sick. But I can now admit I love the rush I get
..To overact. Use words to hurt.. I'll bite me tongue just tongue enough to kill the nerves.
And ride you out..I'll ride you out. Ill ride you out. Ill ride you out..
I'll ride you out!!
Track Name: Sunny Day
Sunny Day, there's no way there was a cloud. Except the blue one hanging over you.
So hide beneath the cloth, you don't wanna get burnt. If you have tears I hope they hurt..
We live to give and take away..
So on, the sand, we lay Tuesday.
Thursday I know you're someone different.

It's been one year since that last Tuesday! And still I know you're someone different.

Hey lady can you tell me the reason for leaving the tone how it is..
Seeing you's like opening up a coke when you're thirsty but all that I get is fizz.
Now you're just a number (a number on a list) Just because you're hurting doesn't mean I don't exist!

Something real can still be fake.
It's you're innocence I take.

And there's been some more since then.
But you can still take a bow cuz you're part of the people I'd use again...even though it's been one year, since that last Tuesday! And still I know you're someone different, someone different!

Up Frazier Mtn..She would sit tight as snow came with night..as he would sleep off all the shit which later fed the guilt to help him die.

HELP HIM DIE!!
And there's been some more since then.
But you can still take a bow cuz you're part of the people I'd use again.
Use again!!
