Snapcase - Progression Through Unlearning mp3 album
For as influential as Progression Through Unlearning was on the hardcore scene, particularly its drummers, the album was created at a time when Snapcase was struggling to rebalance itself, and marked a shift in their history. In 1996, after the band had been kicking around for a few years and had a full-length and a handful of EPs to show for themselves, their primary songwriter, guitarist Scott Dressler, left the band for graduate school. They suddenly found themselves in their tiny, dungeon-like basement practice space with a new member and a new modus operandi

Even though Progression Through Unlearning is (supposedly) a highly influential album in the realm of hardcore, there are a few problems that I found with it. The biggest of which is that every song sounds just like the one before it. Snapcase wrote a ton of great riffs for this album but they all are so closely related that telling them apart is a chore most of the time. There is only so many drop-C riffs you can play before they all start to sound alike. Apart from the music being repetitive, the vocals are the same.
Progression Through Unlearning (1997) by Snapcase. Labels: Victory Records. Genres: Metalcore, Hardcore Punk Members: Daryl Taberski, Frank Vicario, Jon Salemi, Bob Whiteside, Tim Redmond. Progression Through Unlearning. Album (Studio full-length). Snapcase's success is measured not by superstar, breakout sales or contrived radio singles but by the fact that each subsequent album has sold more than its predecessor. The new album "End Transmission" is an intense, artistic, cathartic and progressive musical odyssey. It is an album for true fans of groundbreaking, distinguished music. Throughout Snapcase's pragmatic career they have been revered as one of the most innovative, intelligent and undeniably inspirational bands.
The making of ‘Progression through unlearning’. Snapcase made some of the fastest and most intense and aggressive music I’ve ever heard. I was gonna ask about that, because you guys kinda used that, thematically, on the production of that album. There’s intense amp buzzing and electrical crackling. It almost becomes a theme of breaking down – the sound is corrosive in the some of these songs, does that make sense? Oh, yeah. Does that come from playing through shitty blown-out amps? No, we were equipment whores, actually.
