The Burden We Bear - "The Roman Candle"



















This 6 piece band are from Central Valley, CA. They have a great and interesting sound which they refer to as Jivecore. They released "The Roman Candle" late 2011..is it burning bright, or looking dim?.. Opening with "Severance 2.0" which has great guitar licks, beats and melodic riffs. A good introduction to the band. Coming in at just under 2 minutes, this track keeps it short but sweet!

"The Trip" consists of synths sounds, great guitar work, with a mix of clean and scream vocals and lots of dynamic tempo changes. Nothing not to like really! I especially like the creepy piano bit at the end... Very unexpected! The strangely titled, "Pachinko" again shows some great guitar licks, as shown throughout. I'm really digging their tones and production. Quite unique in places.

"Brought To You By Cinco" - really loving the main riff in this song!.. Very memorable! Lots of twists and turns, great structure and mastering! Possibly my favourite song on the EP. The brilliantly titled "Swagger Jagger" is by far the heaviest track on the album. Another highlight for me.

Its hard to find anything to dislike about this EP. All tracks are creative and well produced. I think this band have an awesome and overall quite unique sound! Have a listen and see for yourselves! For fans of: Stray From The Path, Attila, Dance Gavin Dance, Fall Of Troy, A Day To Remember. "The Roman Candle" is available on Itunes: http://itunes.apple.com/us/album/the-roman-candle-ep/id474333355 and Spotify.

REVIEW: Bobaflex - Eloquent Demons

Hard Rockers Bobaflex from West Virginian are back to wreak havoc with their eighth album ‘Eloquent Demons’ which is the follow to 2015’s ‘Anything That Moves’, this sees not only their first release through Thermal Entertainment but their first actual label release in a while after the band decided to go independent. They are a very hardworking and tireless band, having extensively toured, and even setting records for this, they certainly don’t do anything by half measures.
The opening intro and title track sounds very appropriately evil, with a creepy intro speech to set the scene whilst we wait for the demons to be fully unleashed…
First proper track ‘I Am Nightmare’ immediately sees heavy dark guitars and melodic group singing, which give it a classic feel with a gritty edge and is possesses a hell of a powerful chorus, not to mention a killer solo – this will be hard to forget.
Keeping the momentum going is ‘Long Time Coming’ which is equally as hard-hitting, with groove ridden and…

REVIEW: Vrona - Impermanence (Prog Metal)

Prog metallers, Vrona released their debut EP 'A Lapse In Time' last year which received positive press and even led to them being compared to the likes of heavyweights Karnivool, TesseracT and Tool, minus the vocals, as in 2016 they were an instrumental act. Now in 2017, they are back, not only with a new two-track release titled 'Impermanence' but they have also unveiled and added an extra dimension to their already massive sound with the introduction of a vocalist Jamie Ball.

The main title track 'Impermanence' is ambient and textured. The vocals are pleasant, captivating and varied which immediately gives them a different feel and layer, proving that adding vocalist Jamie was a wise move. It features soaring and powerful moments throughout. The fact that they now have vocals doesn't overpower the well crafted and intelligible instruments either but only acts as the perfect unison, with both complimenting each other wonderfully. They are all impressive mu…
