They are not a Death Metal band but some of their songs do have a bit of that "shouting".
I am happy to say I like it. Mike Barnes, the lead vocalist has a very melodic voice that is (according to the liner notes) frequently compared with Doug Rob (Hoobastank) and Chester Bennington (Linkin Park).
I am going to go out on a limb and add Morten Harket (A-Ha).
My conclusion: he can shout like any Death Metal singer and he can pull of country-esk folk sounds, pop, pop rock and even a ballad.
Strong guitar, heavy bass, tight drums
Woah, currently reached track number 9 on the album and it's "Ordinary World"....yyyyeeeeesss the Duran Duran "Ordinary World". (See, he CAN sing pop tunes)
OK, these types of covers I like to call "cheating". Not with a venomous spit but I say so lovingly. This is a very good song and it would be a crime if you did not play this with a certain amount of perfection.
They have chosen their next song, (number 10) "Out From Wonder" very wisely. It is a good segue from "Ordinary World" into their own metal influenced sound. Vocals on what sounds like an arena equalizer and then a megaphone equalizer blends in with a sad melody that crashes into a bit of death metal shouts.
The Japan special edition of their album "Innocence & Instinct" (released on March 4th) is special because:
There are two bonus tracks ... "Breathe Into Me" and an acoustic version of "Already Over".
There are also three music videos: Death of Me", "Breathe Into Me" and "Already Over".
This album gets four and a half stars out of my five star rating.
