Presenting raging tunes of a brutal blended sound featuring reckless metal marks and punk rock-inspired strains, Evergreen Terrace delivers their own particular melodic vision of the hardcore style. Forming in Jacksonville, FL, in 1999, Evergreen Terrace joined the efforts of a five-piece set, fronted by Andrew Carey (vocals) and completed with Craig Chaney (guitar, vocals), Joshua James (guitar), Jason Southwell (bass), and Christopher Brown (drums). Only months after forming, the band released its first demo EP, Broken, giving them considerable notice within the local music scene. During the following year, Terrace independently issued yet another EP, a split disc with Cordelle, before entering their first U.S. tour alongside Third Root. In 2001, the band again entered the recording studio, delivering Losing All Hope Is Freedom, their debut album, that same year. Their follow-up, Burned Alive by Time, appeared late the next year on Eulogy before a spring 2003 split with Xone FifthX was issued on Indianola. The covers album Writer's Block surfaced in early 2004, which featured Evergreen tackling songs by a range of bands, including Operation Ivy, Tears for Fears, U2, and Smashing Pumpkins. Early demos and random live cuts were compiled that same year for At Our Worst. Their next proper full-length, the screamo-tinged Sincerity Is an Easy Disguise in This Business, was released in June 2005. That same year, Kyle Mims (ex-Love Is Red) entered on drums. Part of summer 2006 was spent on the Sounds of the Underground tour alongside heavy-hitters like Terror, GWAR, In Flames, and As I Lay Dying before hooking up with Throwdown and Zao that fall. All of this activity paid off by early 2007 in the form of a deal with Metal Blade, which released Wolfbiker that summer. Metal Blade also issued the band's fifth full-length, Almost Home, in 2009. ~ Mario Mesquita Borges, Rovi
