With At Wits End on indefinite hiatus, singer Pants Pantsley is taking his platinum-plated voicebox even further beyond hardcore with Oreon, a band closer to straight rock, but with an occasional screamo inflection, all the attitude of punk, and nine times the finesse. Available now at, "Twilight" tells the tale of a seductress with a blade in one hand and a gun in the other. And while you should never take a band's word about its sound, we hereby validate the group's claim that it "sounds like fun and danger."
