OppositesBiffy Clyro's sixth studio album Opposites is an attention-commanding two-disc behemoth. The division between the two halves isn't as apparent as one might anticipate from a project such as this (with a title such as that). Thematically, each disc does adhere to its subjects - the former an anxious, bleak chapter, told with a raw intensity; the latter playing host to a more positive, uplifting premise.
But sonically, Opposites is very much a single body of work. The Sand at the Core of Our Bones segues seamlessly into The Land at the End of Our Toes, making for an overall steadfast record that's unmistakeably theirs.
In amongst the seismic riffs and knockout choruses that the band has made its calling card are twinkling vocal hooks, bagpipes, little punctuations of harp, yowling bass, and overt humour. Many of the above can be found in Stingin' Belle alone, which houses the lyric "you think you're cool like a porcupine". For a band with the tools to be a staid, ever-earnest entity, a pleasing sense of wit continues to be a key facet of Biffy Clyro.

As is tradition, writing sessions for the album saw Biffy Clyro - Simon Neil (vocals/guitar) and the Johnstonbrothers James (bass) and Ben (drums) working in the intimate environment of their practice room. They then headed to Los Angeles for recording sessions with producer Rich Costey (Muse, My Chemical Romance, SigurRos). Citing influences as diverse as Tears For Fears' Songs From The Big Chair album, DJ Arca and Deafheaven,Simon Neil has described Ellipsis as more of a punch to the nose than a big cuddle.
Lyrically, the album's songstackle personal issues with the idea of fighting back a recurring theme. Such themes are also apparent in the album's visceral first single Wolves of Winter which captures BiffyClyro's famous blend of angular riffs, pummelling rhythms and strident hooks. Says Neil: 'Wolves of Winter' isabout us being wolves on a patch and if you come onto that patch, we'll tear you limb-from-limb.
An Ellipsis (most commonly depicted as ...) indicates a continuation: in this case, Biffy Clyro's new body of workis an ongoing representation of everything that the band have stood for since first debuting in 2002 with theBlackened Sky album.$23.99180 Gram Audiophile Virgin Vinyl LP - Sealed Buy Now
