Since forming in early 2001, Indianapolis-based band Haste the Day has maintained the same 5 members, both brothers and friends, and have toured all over North America and Europe as both headliners and direct support for bands like Bleeding Through and From First To Last among others. Featuring vocalist Stephen Keech, bassist Mike Murphy, rhythm guitarist Brennan Chaulk and his brother, drummer Devin Chaulk this is the absolute strongest Haste the Day album yet - hey have set themselves up for a triumphant arrival in "Dreamer".

"If anyone has ever followed Haste the Day, they know Jimmy Ryan was the first lead singer. He now screams for Trenches. Stephen Keech is the bands second lead singer for HTD, he sang on Pressure The Hinges and the new one Dreamer. He's really good, but no Jimmy Ryan. Even with these changes HTD continues to provide the metal community with some awesome metal. This CD continues the NEW HTD with some hard hitting music. After Jimmy Ryans depart, and hearing Pressure the Hinges, I thought they would start to become a softer metal act, but no. Even with the singing, this CD is still hard and will attract all Haste the Day fans. If you liked Pressure the Hinges, you will love Dreamer."

"I only recently got into Haste the Day, with the cds "Burning Bridges" and "When everything Falls", which I know are old but i just bought them and fell in love. I was kinda excited when this new cd came out, but almost hesitant to hear how they progressed. I know most bands take a turn for the worse around this point in their developement, but not HTD. This cd is, for lack of a better word, amazing. HTD has grown past the throaty growls and short choruses with cool riffs, into a full caliber metal band. This cd has it all, blood pumping coherant screams, catchy choruses, and mind blowing riffs that go on for days. This is a great cd for old fans and to make some new ones. Very impressive and a must buy!"
Solid effort, hitting harder

"This record is definitely an improvement over Pressure the Hinges, which sounded too much like what you hear on rock radio. The vocals are more brutal, and Stephen Keech does a good job of balancing gutteral screams with clean singing vocals. All I want to convey is for anybody who wrote HtD off after PtH, give them another spin with this one. While it's not the same band as when Jimmy Ryan was howling into the mic, I actually think that some of the tracks on this record exhibit their best musically to date. Check out the song Haunting - it demonstrates what I've mentioned in this paragraph.
And this music is not for fans of Keane or Emery. Nothing like it. Whereas those bands can fit neatly into radio playlists, Haste the Day cannot because the vocals and occasional breakdowns are too brutal to be radio friendly. I repeat, there is no Keane or Emery here. If you don't remember anything else you read today, please don't associate HtD with those people. And putting Underoath in the same list as Keane is sacrilege."
