I have a few cd's from this band at home. For me it's a nice mix between Nickelback, Muse, Soundgarden and Alice in Chains! We only get 10 tracks, the fact that it doesn’t seem enough says it all, no?
'See you at the bottom' starts with great roaring guitars and a retro 90's grunge sound. The voice and the music just jumps at me like a happy dog that missed me for too long! The screaming is really great and at some point I feel a 'Muse' déjà-vu, but they won’t mind as they did the same with a band from Belgium.
The next one starts with almost the same melody as Ricky Nelson's track 'I will follow you', just check it out as I did and you'll see. Despite that it's a great one!
Another great melody and great melancholic voice is on 'Words as Weapons'. The lyrics are just great! The melody is very catchy and reminds me of an 80's hit (but the name doesn't want to come out).
'My disaster' sounds very nice with the roaring guitars and the melancholic voice, very into Nickelback and Soundgarden. The lyrics are also not far away from another of their songs 'Like a Hurricane' (for sure the chorus).
'Crash' is a nice ballad, very sweet with enough pathos!
'Suffer it all' goes a bit harder and is a nice rocker and screamer! Just as 'Watch me drown'!
'Nobody praying for me' is a nice soft one; the voice hits a soft spot. Love the melancholy in this track, just as the rocking part! Nice lyrics! Very into Nickelback!
'Keep The Dogs At Bay' is another great rocker, like a stadium rocker! Mind the guitars and the laid down moments!
'Save Today' is a great acoustic ballad! For once with a piano/synth and an acoustic guitar. The lyrics are also worth checking out! If this song doesn't move you, well than I'm lost!
This was 40 minutes of fun, a bit short (that's always the case with great albums)! Maybe I'll see them on stage, who knows...
