Punk: Year in Review 2010
6. Coliseum House With A Curse (Temporary Residence)
Louisville's Coliseum, infamous for their primal scream therapy, take a left turn down a familiar path on House with a Curse. Lead singer Ryan Patterson's caveman growl is intact, but the band shifts down a couple of gears, slogging through the mud and filth of dirty post-hardcore. With a little help from friends (including Will Oldham), the trio come away with their most memorable album yet. "Skeleton Smile," featuring Oldham's creepy refrains, is Coliseum as a whole new beast. They dropped the D-beat hardcore and picked up a Dischord-ian slow burn. Some will bellyache, some will rejoice. We're just busy rocking out.
