Prosthetic debut LP from TX hardcore punks, Amygala. Our Voices Will Soar Forever is an album about the non-linear progression of healing, the twisted ways abuse can linger in our psyche, and take control over the ways we navigate life. Vocalist Bianca Quiñones confronts nihilism in her shrilling screams as she begins the record with a song that asks about the emptiness of life, the chaos and the tragedy. With its melodic instruments trucking alongside Quiñones’ powerful grasps for meaning in the violent hollowness of existence, the record encapsulates the deeply terrifying nature of living as a victim of rape and abuse. In classic Amygdala style, each song never stays in one genre, but slowly transitions from traditional melodic hardcore, to a heavier, sludgier, black-metal inspired sound to standard hardcore punk. Each song is an entire emotional journey, each lyric a revelation. This album is about the war traumatized folks, especially marginalized folks, are part of. Quińones rages against their mental illness, their abuser(s), and all the pain inflicted on them in their childhood and throughout their life.
