The thing that makes "An Autobiography" stand out is that it's angst done right- it's mad, not whiny. This seems to be more in the spirit and theme of pissed off young revelations- rather than weepy songs about lost relationships. Tracks like "The Artist" are vaguely reminiscent of Modest Mouses "This is a Long Drive For Someone With Nothing to Think About", sure it's in major overdrive, but a similar soul is there.
Tracks like "Show Me How You Self Destruct" contain sparse and subtle instrumentation, featuring a poetry reading. Then the following track (entitled:'The Graduate') introduces us to the most indulgence of noise we've heard yet.
Tracks on "An Autobiography" often feature ideas and sounds lacking in a lot of Hardcore Screamo I've heard, such as the use of strings and female vocal harmonies (that even scream back at times). The production and mixing levels are also top notch- sure it's hard stuff with lots of distortion, but our ears are never taking a beating for the wrong reasons.
"An Autobiography" by Old Gray is offered quite generously at a "name your price" deal via their Bandcamp page.
