Well, as many people know, Ronnie the old vocalist has been replaced with new vocalist Craig Mabbit who was formerly frontman for Blessthefall.
The 2 songs released on their myspace (the flood and this war is ours) are in my opinion probably the 2 best songs on the album.
Opening track 'we wont back down' really sets the pace and gets you tapping your foot to some familiar ETF style music with some aggressive guitar riffs and melodic soloing. Whereas tracks like 'Ashley', 'harder than you know' and 'it's just me' are totally different to what old ETF fans are used to.
This is a great album. People need to give it a chance and take a listen. The music is typical Escape The Fate, but Craig brings something new to the band. He makes it less 'hardcore screamo' and more 'punk metal' if that makes sense!
4/5 stars. But this could easily have been 5 if they spent a little longer on some of the songs, some of them seem a little rushed. Hope this review was helpful.
