Japanese punks Envy debuted with the brief bursts of psychotic hardcore of the mini-album Breathing and Dying In This Place (1996)
After From Here To Eternity (1998), however, the mini-album
Angel's Curse Whispered In The Edge Of Despair (1999) introduced a
different band, a chamber ensemble bent on exploiting and expanding every
nuance of their music instead of simply bombarding the listener with nasty
sounds. Hence the ten-minute Unrepairble Gentleness.
All The Footprints You've Ever Left And The Fear Expecting Ahead (2001)
was still fundamentally a hardcore album, although it ended again with a lengthy
tour de force, Your Shoes and the World to Come; but
A Dead Sinking Story (2003) definitely embraced the
post-rock aesthetic of ebbing and flowing atmosphere and much more convoluted
evolution, notably in the three longer pieces:
Chain Wandering Deeply, Unrepairable Gentleness and especially the 13-minute A Will Remains in the Ashes.
Their music had become an exercise in building
exhausting psychological tension.
Insomniac Doze (2006) added
the ten-minute Crystallize and
the 15-minute The Unknown Glow to their main canon.
Recitation (2010) marked a low point of inspiration, except for the
seven-minute 0 and 1.
