REVIEW: Accidental President - Self Titled Album



Accidental President are a Alt-Rock trio who have concocted their unique blend of hard rock which is mixed with goth and metal elements and makes for a refreshing and exciting sound especially through their theatrical delivery. Their self-titled debut album which was unleashed on July 1st 2020 showcases this wonderfully....

Opening track 'Hopes & Dreams' kicks off with a soaring ambient guitar intro with Bethany Neville delivering memorable and hard-hitting vocals to accompany the highly skilled instrumentation in this optimistic rock track which is a solid and captivating start.

Single 'Rotten Child' grabs your attention immediately with fiercer attitude packed vocals and changes the tone up with a more alarming and dysfunctional sound keeping things dynamic and fun whereas '100 Days' keeps things feisty and exciting.

'Last Breath' has a smooth guitar intro with some of the best and beautiful vocals from Bethany who gets to show her capabilities and range wonderfully throughout. 'Warrior Soul' with its striking memorable guitars and raspy angsty vocals makes this another solid rock track.

'Strength Inside' has more powerful and ambient guitars which create a cool atmosphere that accompanies Bethany's dark vocals brilliantly. This is a especially memorable track with some of the most impressive and varied guitars featured.

'The King Is Dead' some seriously stylish riffs and licks, strong group vocals make for effective delivery. 'Hateful' is a swaggering hard rock track which the band describe as a song of strength in desperation inspired by the testimony of an escaped abductee.

Final song 'Letting Go' is sombre and haunting and shows off their diversity once again in this slower yet equally impactful track which ends on a emotive note with its sound and lyrics such as “Let me get angry, at the people that hurt me. I need to get angry, at how they treated me.”


This debut album certainly conveys their interesting hard rock sound which is a mix of rock/metal sub genres and somehow it all fits perfectly and is delivered effectively making it very liberating and as it is an incredibly dynamic release it means there's something for everyone.

Of course when it comes to music, at least for us, we wanted to record an album with some of the best musicians in metal music and the ones that we listened to when we were kids. We are not saying that this is something special what we are doing, but this means a lot to us and basically we are doing this for ourselves and our closest friends first but also for all the metal fans around the world who we hope are going to like our new music.
