Fire Drill Album Review: Boston’s Kal Marks sophomore effort, Life Is Alright, Everybody Dies, is brilliant. The album evokes and pulls you towards tones of deep and dark, murky then jangly, and emotions that are dour and anguished but somehow hopeful despite feeling as if you are drowning in a pool of thick despair. Life Is Alright, Everybody Dies is a wonderful blend of off-kilter vocals and heavy, chugging guitars. A noise-laden rock opus. Kal Marks hits all the right spots that bands such as Pile, Krill, and Fat/Bad History Month hit. One of my favorite records of 2016. Just incredible.
