Attack Attack! brings a new Punk Rock album that is noisy at first, but then mellows down and becomes more palatable. There are moments in which the band’s sound is unique, but they are rare… most of their songs are sound like many other contemporary bands. This band has the talent to create its own sound, and I’m hopeful that they will in future works.
Parquet Courts bring a collection of surprising tunes… you never know what is coming next! There are many styles and rhythms here, and the creativity and energy abound. If you’re looking for an album that is not monotonous and begs for your attention, look no further! This strangely named band shows a lot of promise.
Christian Metal band Demon Hunter’s new album has signs of multiple personalities disorder. It includes genres from very noisy, semi-Nu Metal to soft and melodic Metal Ballads, with the vocals adjusting accordingly. It’s almost as if half the band wanted to record a heavy album, and the other half of the band wanted a Hard Rock one. In any case, the poor name choice for a Christian band still buggs me somewhat.
