Alexisonfire - Old Crows/Young CardinalsDallas Green helps to make Alexisonfire one of Canada’s most intriguing bands. When the guitarist-singer is not venting his spleen as part of the best-selling group’s post-hardcore “screamo” sound, he’s fronting the gentle folk outfit City and Colour. Alexisonfire’s latest is a predictably intense affair, full of blood-curdling howls and propulsive riffs. But there are also signs that the boys are growing up. As Dallas and fellow vocalist George Pettit sing on “Old Crows,” “We are not the kids we used to be.”
