A little too emo for me. I like it a little more melodic...

OK Im lovin these tunes way too much, so I had to download this EP off itunes & it is mighty killer indeed.

 

1. Daughter Of The Sea - great opening track, hard hitting verses and a good chorus. Real attitude to this song.

 

2. The Weight Of The World - killer modern hard rock. Production of Fallbrooke, but kicks their arse! Almost a SOTY vibe, very nice (& solo)

 

3. There Will Be Rain - fuck me this is a killer rocker....easily the best track. Like a cross between SOTY and Anberlin. :bowdown:

 

4. In The Night - the full song on myspace....& very nice it is too. killer end to a killer EP.

 

I usually hate EPs but these 4 songs are too good to ignore.

 

Cheers

Is this all they're going to release this year? Are these songs going to be on a full length debut?

Well, just listening to the new album, 'All our kings are dead'... and quite frankly I am really enjoying this. I think their sound may have changed a little - I get a Lostprophets vibe (the more melodic side of them). It looks like none of the songs from the EP are on this either, so I'll have to track down that EP. This definitely appears to be one of the stronger modern rock releases of the year.

yeah i had a little listen at their myspace the other day and i though the same, that their sound had changed considerably. Will have to take a listen on spotify....is it released yet do you know??

 

The EP was pretty great from memory - will have to get those songs back on my iphone for a fresh new listen :-))

Yeah mate, released on 12th of July. I will try to track down the EP this weekend as I'm really interested in just how drastic the change is style was.

Then i pass, i refuse to spend money on digital music :) they say illegal downloads are killing the industry? They're wrong, its bands (or rather, record companies) ignoring the fact that there's still a market for CDs -_-

Well, heard the 'Mirrors' EP on the weekend and maybe their sound/style hasn't changed as much as I thought. I still got that melodic kind of Lostprophets vibe. These guys are good, very consistent, but they won't set the world alight with this stuff.

    • they need some original ideas and humour that's not obvious. their winning formula,was stuff like Tiger Woods, Bukkake Tears & Asian Hooker - awesome musically but with a clever humourous angle. 
    • Generally if I hate an album I ain't ever gonna like it, but there have been albums over the years that I was kinda "well it's ok, but nothing special and will probably never listen to it again" that I have later gone back to and loved. The most obvious one for me is Ace Frehley - Trouble walking. Bought it on the cheap on cassette, listened to it and just went "meh, it's ok". Took me several years to play it again, and this time was totally blown away by it. Dunno if my tastes were just more developed by then as when I first heard it I was only 3 years or so into my journey into hard rock n metal, or if I just had not paid attention initially, but still to this day its my fave album by him and has a good representation in my playlist mix.   Also, not such a long time in between listens, but the first time I played Dr Feelgood by The Crue, I was not impressed. A few months later I played it again and it's now one of my top albums and bands of all time, featuring my top song of all time as well.
    • I am actually surprised that he did not have any Motorhead on that list as he has often mentioned them as one of his biggest influences on Under the blade, and he became great friends with Lemmy as Lemmy helped break them here in the UK. I actually thought, considering his age and that he started out in the 70s, that his favourite albums would have been more 60s orientated.
    • They played one show as a tribute to AJ Pero when he died then called it quits. Dee is a solo performer these days, but the band do stay in touch with each other for projects involving the band (documentaries, re-releases etc) and some of the other members do production etc
    • I never lost faith in these guys, despite the last few albums being patchy. I think the biggest problem they have is they know they need to retain the humour, but felt that maybe toning it down was the way to go, and it really wasn't. They are kinda stuck between a rock and a hard place as they know if they tone the humour down or remove it, they are gonna lose more fans, but if they stick with the same level humour as the early albums they are gonna get bagged on for being repetitive. (and to be totally honest their live shows did become stale as they kept using the same in between song banter for years, so we were hearing the same jokes again and again).   I think the time away, and the loss of Lexxi might hopefully be the kick in the butt they need.
