THE FIFTH (Roy Cathey of Cold Sweat, SteelCity) – The Fifth (2021) 

SEPTEMBER 24, 2021


THE FIFTH (Roy Cathey of Cold Sweat, SteelCity) - The Fifth (2021) *0dayrox Exclusive* full

Formed in the early 2000’s by singer Roy Cathey (Cold Sweat, SteelCity) Fayetteville, NC natives THE FIFTH are back with a new line up and a refreshed approach. The band released a couple of successful albums even touring in Japan, with a modern rock / alternative orientation.

However Cathey’s heart belongs to classic ’80s melodic hard rock, and this is the musical path of this ‘new’ THE FIFTH and their self-titled material released today.

The Fifth return to the melodic hard rock world in grand style, delivering a knockout blow on the very first track “Shake Little Sister,” flowing right into “Calm Before The Storm” which shows the band’s depth and musicianship with lush acoustic guitars and stunning three-part harmonies.

“Home” is the band’s unapologetic tribute to the power ballad. An instant classic that fits right in the favourites of years gone by, and could have been a radio / MTV hit.

With “Comin’ To Get Ya” the listener gets a stomping rocker with elements of The Fifth’s previous era, modern meaty hard with some of Audioslave on it. Closing the record out, “Roll The Bones” is the Every Man Anthem, reminiscent of classic Van Halen and Whitesnake that gets the blood pumping with catchy lyrics and soaring guitars.

Commanded by Cathey’s strong vocals, The Fifth rocks with style and melody all over these new tracks / new era. Young guitar hero Justin Womble provides sharp guitar riffs & solos, and with the double barrel firepower of the rhythm section of Gary “Zeus” Smith and bassist Jake Tripp the band has the deadly combination of youth and experience that makes them a welcomed addition to the Melodic Hard Rock scene.

Highly Recommended

    • I don't know why this concept is so hard for the world to accept. This pandemic ends when we say it ends. It's really as simple as that. As long as we keep shining a blowtorch on it it's never going to stop governing our lives. The obsession with it is a far greater pandemic than the actual virus.  I know people hate when I bring up logical thinking, but we can't just keep reporting all the covid stats as if it is the only thing on earth affecting people. If we need to keep a record of daily covid case numbers, then they should be read alongside an entire daily list of all diseases, viruses and illnesses, so we can see where it sits, in context. If we need to talk about how many hospitalisations there are, then we need a daily list of every single patient in a hospital and exactly why they're there and see where covid ranks on that list too. Same with deaths. A lot of people die in the world every single day. Not just from covid. If we're serious about saving lives, we need a daily list of every single death and what caused it, ranked. See where covid ranks on this list too, and act accordingly. Sounds absolutely fucking ridiculous? Of course it does. But we need to stop pretending covid is the only thing on planet earth and put it into context with every single other human ailment.  It's like the meek kid at school who runs from spiders and has a phobia for everything is currently governing how we all live our lives. If people want to live their lives in fear of this thing, I'm all for them doing that but there needs to be a time when they leave us out of it.  I like cleaning my ears and nostrils with the tip of my penis, but do I need to enforce this method of cleanliness on the entire world? No, I do not. I am scared of losing the 386th hair in the 147th row of hairs on my head, but do I need the world around me to live in fear of hair loss? Why are we all being dragged into this stupid fucking thing? If people want to panic, let them panic, but leave the rest of us out of it.
    • Now this is a fun album. Played it a few times this morning and really liking it. 
    • Apparently your not a fan, we did that flick back in 08, it was called G-Off is RUSSIAN IN THE BACK DOOR, there's also 7 sequels, we are shooting on location right now for his next big flick called, Trudeau Felches the Canadian Bacon, and it's funny you singled that sentence out, whats really so sadly comic is Joe Biden is making Trump look like the greatest leader in history, these people are going to be fighting to re-elect him when this term is over, I really think the funniest part about Trump being re-elected, will be the 4 straight years of silence from democrats in the following years, they are all implicit in this, and all the people who didn't vote for biden on his credentials, they just voted so Trump didn't go back in. egg all over the face, not to mention chinese and russian jizz, face and back
