The Sound of Animals Fighting are a scene supergroup in the same sense that the Boston Celtics are a super NBA team. The combination of talent from Anthony Green (of Saosin, Circa Survive, etc.) and Matt Embree (of Rx Bandits, Love You Moon), along with their other members provide for a well-balanced offense and defense. They’ve been in the game since 2005, but when they released their 2008 album The Ocean and the Sun, it was clear that they won the championship ring for supergroups, past and present (including Isles and Glaciers, who just pale in comparison to these guys). Soundwise, it’s what you would expect to hear from members of Rx Bandits and Anthony Green. This song in particular sounds like the old days of Saosin with the trademark RxB’s highly technical progressive rock skills.
