Label: Independent

Release Date: October 10, 2010

Rating: 8.5/10

Reviewed by: ToddStar

This release came across my desk from a social media connection.  Sometimes requests for reviews of a favorite band or guys that a fan really like don’t pan out.  This one fares better than most.  “Black Or White” opens the EP, and does so in good rock fashion.  The drums and bass grab the reins immediately, but soon the guitars kick in and drive this track.  The vocals work well over top the instruments.  “Distance” is next and has a more mellow feel to it, without sounding watered down.   The guitars and vocals mix well at the bridge and chorus.  “Behind The Eyes” kicks the energy back up a notch, maybe even higher than on the opening track.  The drumming and bass line here add depth and keep this song on track.  This is probably my favorite of the tracks on this EP.  The vocals bring across the emotion of the lyrics without drowning out the band.  “Fade Away” slows the tempo down and gives the band a ballad to include on the disc.  It isn’t overly sappy or cliche, so it does add to the disc and demonstrates the band has some diversity in their writing and playing.
