ION VEIN – IV v2.0

| 19 December 2012 | Reply


Label: Mortal Music

Release Date: December 11, 2012

Rating: 8.5/10

Reviewed by: ToddStar

This short EP features three tracks from the Chicago, IL band.  Opener “Seemless” is a great rocker with killer guitars and strong vocals.  It definitely gets you ready for some headbanging.  “Fools Parade” comes along and leads you further into a metal meltdown.  The chunky riffs and pounding drums are a metalheads dream come true.  The solos are well placed and not overwhelming.  The vocals play well with the instruments here.  “This Is Me” closes out the release.  The intro is cool and allows the bass player to strut his stuff.  The chugging guitars in unison with the rhythm section make for a great track.  The vocals are smokey and layered well over the music.

I’d love to hear more before really passing judgement on the band as a whole, but this release is one for the collection.
