Rome Will Burn Self Titled EP Review





Rome Will Burn are still newcomers, but this electronic alternative pop duo from Arizona, consisting of Alyssa Suede and Manifesto are certainly making an impression with their recently released self titled EP..

First song and latest single, 'Chameleon' radiantly opens with complementary electronic and synth sounds to match the repetitive yet effective vocals. It has brilliant rhythms and melody, and the use of strong language, gives it a slightly harder pop edge. This will easily hide in your mind and is adaptable for listeners, as they achieve what they set out too, with their electronic pop with a difference!

'These Three Words' has a more fragile air to it, with stand out emotive vocals that resonant wonderfully, with sweet sappy lyrics to fit the context, showing they can diversify more-so, and with charming results.

'Waging Romance' has a dramatic more serious feel to, but is very strong and infectiously catchy, making it a must hear, and features some almost folk inspired sounds which keeps things exciting and fresh, and shows of the duo's eclectic tastes and talents well.

'Live By The Beat' truly embodies the 'beat' and keeps it strong and pounding throughout, in what is one of the most mainstream pop offerings so far, making for a great hit dance track contender with it's electronic pulse.

Final song, 'Body Language' is very slick and sultry and captures this in the synth sounds well, before diving into a full blown pop in your face explosion, which is extremely groovy and will make you want to move your 'body'. Again there are some surprises here, with talking to add to context and dance and folk elements again. 

Rome Will Burn is a bit out of the norm for me, but that being said, this is a fun, exciting, intelligible and enjoyable self titled release. In these five songs, they manage to inject their unique influences and different moods in a clever and well constructed way. The duo's pretence is that people think there is nothing new or interesting in the genre of electronic pop, and I think anyone who hears this will easily agree that Rome Will Burn smash this idea and come out strong with their unique blend of electronic music. If you are looking for something inspiring and unusual, look no further!

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…
