Reviews Ambitions Exile



Ambitions have always been one of those bands I've liked but never really got overly into. They always seemed far too cheesy in that super posi Bane way for me to never want to take them seriously. 2007 rolls around, Ambitions signs to Bridge Nine and releases a new 7". They are still cheesy as hell but I usually order my pizza with extra handful of mozzarella anyhow. Ambitions is melodic hardcore with operatic vocals that call to mind Ignite, but the music is a tad more moshy. Ambitions ups the ante with Exile by writing catchy songs and drawing influences from 90's post-hardcore acts like Man Will Surrender and Shift into an energetic emotional outpouring of hardcore that proves it doesn't always have to be fast and metal to be powerful. If this 7" is an indication of what the full-length will entail Ambitions will have one albeit heavy on the cheddar positive melodic hardcore album.
