Vocally I like most of what I heard on this track. The female vocalist has some hellified range and good breath control for sustained notes. In fact my first thought when I heard her was Paramour! She has that same not quite but almost pouty sound to her voice with an occasional bit of gravel that is a really nice combo. I think my issues were less vocal technique and a production choice. I do feel like there are times when she sounds almost dropped out. I hate to say that because she really does have a stellar voice. I also wanna touch on the male backing vocals for a sec. I love the tone and growl he’s going going on. I would so love to hear more of that. When both vocalist melded together it was true music magic. Ok, so musically I loved the music. It’s got a rocking upbeat speedy with some moments of metal drumming mastery that you wouldn’t necessarily expect on a straight rock track. Guitars were nice and crunchy just the way I like them.
Would I Listen to More of Their Stuff: Yes. Despite my comments regarding vocals or maybe because of them I would like to listen to more of their music to see if I feel like I have the same critique. I’m hoping that for me, this was their B side tune.
