“Failure” by Breaking Benjamin: Single Review

This year seems to be ushering in a fair amount of bands that haven’t released a record for three years, but that three year gap can become the average amount of time between albums. There are some groups that haven’t released a studio album in four or five years, but Breaking Benjamin is so far in the lead with their last album being released a whopping six years ago. And this week marks the start of releases from their new album that’s coming out this year.

“Failure” is a song that flows easily from one point to the next. It starts out with a moderate amount of energy and builds easily into a melody of strong guitars as the vocals come in. The vocals seem to cut cleanly through the surrounding instruments as well as easily keeping pace with the overall tempo of the song. The song reaches a crescendo of energy towards the end of it, leaving you hungry for more. “Failure” is engaging and easy to listen to, and really builds up my excitement for the new album.

I like it an awful lot and admittedly I may not be at my full capacity since I started some new meds, but I feel like there could have been a little more to the song than there was. Perhaps it’s just hunger for more content from a group that’s been off the beaten path for six years, but there is a definite amount of hunger for more that the song just can not fill. Breaking Benjamin’s new album, Dark Before Dawn, is currently set to release on June 23.
