AbsolutePlaylist: The Best of Rise Records

Posted by - 04:47 AM on 07/25/14
It's pretty hard to argue that Rise Records isn't one of the top independent record labels out there. Thinking about it, the first time I had ever heard of the label was when Drop Dead, Gorgeous played at a Christian festival Tomfest in July of 2006. I remember learning about new bands through the label's sampler CDs (remember those?) - this was one of my first exposures to bands like The Devil Wears Prada and more. The following AbsolutePlaylist is a collection of what I consider to be Rise Records very best - hopefully you find a new artist or two to check out and support. Definitely include links to your own favorites in the replies.

Disturbing lack of Oceana. Every record they put out was great and Polyenso is even better.



And holy shit that Drop Dead, Gorgeous track. Man, I miss being 13. Also the track says a shit-ton about risecore (the "genre"). Pretty much every metalcore band from 2007 to now is trying to copy that first DDG album, even the production techniques and sounds haven't changed. The bands have only gotten blander, at least ddg had some personality. It's kind of funny that a shitty record that nobody liked has spawned a whole genre. Say what you want about the music but that record really is a landmark hahahaha.

Technically Isles & Glaciers was released on Equal Vision. Rise only released the vinyl version so I don't know it they should be on the best of Rise.

It's #99 in Rise's catalog, so I felt like it was eligible to count. That would be so awesome to own the vinyl!

the one Of Machines LP that Rise released was easily one of their top 5 records ever. it failed because kids just couldn't understand its brilliance, the intricate guitar work wasn't enough power chords for them to mawsh to. Fantastic record that 5 years later still holds up.

That album is so bad and so good at the same time. Dressed for Friend Requests might be one of the best songs ever in its genre.

Yea I would have thrown in of machines and oceana as well, maybe even some Dead and Divine but this list is pretty decent.
Personality Cult is not anywhere near Issues best song though

I guess if Rise claims it, it works. I wish I could get it on vinyl. Unfortunately I think they only did one pressing and it was a couple years before I started buying it.
