Sever Your Ties: Safety in the Sea
Hey guys this week i thought i would bring you a CD with more of an edge and grit, and Sever your Ties is the band to bring it. With high energy vocals and guitars, this band takes you on a trip and very rarely slows down.
Hailing from San Diego this group brings a mix of alt. rock and screamo that has been done but executes it with great poise. Signed with Solid State records, you know they bring the heat but whats makes them different is their mix in vocals. You'll sometimes ask yourself, is he screaming or singing? what this does is bring both audiences together and really opens up your idea of Solid State bands. I really got into this CD though was just that the CD never really lets up. the energy is always at 100% and its a good drive. With songs like Drifting, Things Are Better, and Voice like a Nova it became one of my favorite Cd's. The icing on the cake is the cover of Blue Oyster Cult's Don't Fear The Reaper.
If you like hard rock but not really into the hardcore, this band will satisfy your cravings. if you do like hardcore then "Come On" its Solid State dude. hahaha anyways check out the CD and enjoy.
