Editors’ Notes A cinematic kind of drama flows from nearly every corner of Burials, accentuating the degree to which AFI has grown up in the public eye—from the fervid punk roar of its early albums to the mature post-hardcore innovations of its more recent work. The atmosphere the band creates here (with help from producer Gil Norton) marks AFI's biggest leap forward—take the apocalyptic, ornately structured "A Deep Slow Panic." But while these tunes' sinuous melodies, unhurried tempos, and subtly textured settings may be a million miles from the music AFI made in its formative years, there's a darkness and intensity to Burials that's greater than anything in the band's past. Songs like "I Hope You Suffer" and "17 Crimes" employ crushing beats while leaving lots of space for eerie effects and dark vocals to take provocative twists and turns.
