Radio rock is a genre that seemingly morphed from the nu-metal and modern metal sounds.  One of the latest bands to toss their hat in the ring is North Carolina’s Adage.  “Anymore” kicks off their EP, scheduled to be released on August 19, and it hits the mark as far as the familiar guitar sound combined with the heavier vocals and deep bottom end.  “Best Of” comes in next and gives the band a little depth and dimension by turning the volume down a bit and actually playing.  The song gives the vocals room to stretch and accentuate the song, especially during the chorus.  “Hold On” blends the styles from the two previous tracks and delivers a solid rock track that is heavy on rhythm and substance while not sounding bland.  “Growing Colder” continues the rock assault, while keeping the aggression dialed down.  The vocals on this track blend well with the guitars, while the drums and bass keep the track grounded.  “Be Myself” closes the EP and gives the band another track that borders on ballad at times and is radio friendly.  The vocals and guitar carry this track, but the fills from the drums and the constant bottom end from the bass give the song added punch during the chorus.
