Every Time I Die
"We play loud, real loud. We needed cables that could deliver clarity with no loss in tone and eliminate all hum. Mogami was the perfect solution. We won't play live without them ever again!"
- Every Time I Die
Every Time I Die's style has been described as metalcore, hardcore punk and post-hardcore. They initially formed as a hardcore punk band but their music soon manifested strong influences from heavy metal and rock. They have been called "metalcore icons" and their 2003 album Hot Damn! a "total gamechanger" for the genre. AllMusic described their metalcore sound as mixing alternative metal, Southern metal and screamo. They have also experimented with mathcore and sludge metal at various points in their discography. They are strongly influenced by Southern rock; frontman Keith Buckley stated that "the grit of... Southern rock bands is the one commonality that the band has. It's something we all appreciate and grew up on, in a sense; mainly because it was the type of music that made a coarse poetry out of nature."Just as the band's sound is chaotic, sharp and manifold, their lyrics are crafted to be strange, sarcastic and sardonicist.
