Earth Bound

So you know what? I'm going to do unsigned reviews today before doing my review of Th1rt3en. Let's start with Earth Bound a Punk-Pop band with screamo vocals. Oo. Yes it is indeed rather interesting. The guitar work is the natural starting point, and I must say that is fairly mundane featuring few surprises and no insane licks. However those few surprises are pretty good (like the wahhed out passage of Volvagia) and make the guitar slightly more interesting than your average punk pop acts'. The bass is decent but it mostly follows your general guitar riff and it is not really exciting. The drums too are fairly low powered and by no means a virtuoso performance. However they do get the job done and give the music a decent rhythm. Yet it is the vocals that give this record its unique aspect, with their screamo aggression we step away from the generic punk pop of the instrumentalists and instead get a contrasting heavier sound. All in all this adds up to create some interesting music thats probably worth a listen.
OVERALL 7.5/10
