For fans of With Ears to See and Eyes to Hear as well as A Skylit Drive, check out my review of Sleeping With Sirens' sophomore record, Let's Cheers To This right here. The record came out last Tuesday, May 10th, off of Rise Records.
Been digging these two records. March 8th is going to be a great day for Rise Records.
Dance Gavin Dance's return to form Downtown Battle Mountain II is everything fans loved about 1, just revamped and matured. Craig's vocals are fantastic, as always, and Mess' screams accent Craig's cleans well, as the contrast emphasizes the abilities of each. Also, the guitar players shine throughout the record. Despite all of the drama Craig's into - well deserved - this record will please fans everywhere. The drumming sticks, the guitars shred, the screams dominate, and the cleans soar. Everything a solid record in the genre needs.
The Color Morale's latest record, My Devil In Your Eyes, may be one of the best metal - heavy - records on Rise to date. The vocal contrast of heavy and light commands the record, as fury intertwines with grace track after track. The back-breaking drumming deserves every complement. The vocals are fantastic. Heavy bands, take notes, this is progression.
Decoder's debut self-titled record may be one of the most highly anticipated record in recent memory for Rise Records. I don't want to give too much away yet, but this record is more than what was hoped for. Period. The screams are haunting, the clean vocals chilling, and the instrumentation top notch. Record drops the 18th, and be sure to check out my review early next week.
Bands such as PMtoday and Tides Of Man are a select few of Rise Record bands that simply are leagues above other bands on the label. While most bands on Rise utilize the sing-scream formula, these two bands are in vain of Circa Survive in the progressive world.
After giving Tides Of Man's upcoming record Dreamhouse a few spins, it's clear they are hands down one of the most talented bands on Rise. This record will please any fan of Circa Survive with the soaring vocals and guitars. Dreamhouse further proves Tides Of Man's ability to stand above all acts on Rise, as it will definitely create a name for them in their genre.
Record drops September 14th. Expect a review around that time.
