House of Heroes: The End Is Not The End
Today we got a band that brings the past and the present together in a mega mix. Grabbing influences from what some call, "The Greatest band ever" and apply their modern edge to make House of Heroes.
From Columbus, Ohio these rockers have brought the influence of the Beatles to modern rock. Signed with Goatee Records, they have a lot of amazing label mates to keep up with. With former artist like Relient K and Family Force 5 and current artist like B. Rieth and Ayiesha Woods, there is a lot of pressure to keep up. Luckily, House of Heroes have their own unique sound that separate them from an already diverse line up. With this CD you can tell the band are huge Beatle fans and what makes them so fresh. You get a since of vintage sound wrapped in an alt rock package. The vocals and guitars bring a edgy sound, while the lyrics bring a storytelling and depth not seen a whole lot lately. With songs like Baby's a Red, In The Valley Of The Dying Sun, and Ghost bring a deep story and imagery of each situation. I think that's really cool.
So if your looking for a new band to put in your already full iPod's, then check out House of Heroes. They bring vintage classics and modern gems together. Also be on the lookout for their Cover CD of the Beatles coming out this year.
