More Rock than Metal,
This review is from: Lead Sails Paper Anchor [Digipak] (Audio CD)
Well they certainly have broken out of the "Metalcore" mould whether that is a good thing or not though is probably a matter of personal preference.
Gone are the cliched metalcore break downs and the scream verse mellow chorus type structures (well for the most part anyway!)..... instead we have some cliched eighties style gang vocals and almost van halen esque guitar work!. All the songs however are well put together and easy to get to grips with and there are a few real crackers "becoming the bull" for example.
What this really means is that for the more hardcore metalheads this ain't for you, but if you don't mind a bit of radio friendliness then give it a shot.
If you do like it the try Still Remains' new record The serpent as its in the same kind of vein and if you dont then get Machine Heads The blackening cos thats real metal!!!
