An excellent debut from a very promising band,
This review is from: Start With A Strong And Persistent Desire (Audio CD)
Vex Red manage to combine powerfull guitaring with soft vocals that can send shivers up your spine. There is alot of energy in the music, bursting to get out, but is kept under control by the calm voice of Terry Abbot whose vocals manage to calm the whole thing down without losing any of the raw power. The stand out tracks for me have to be 'Can't Smile' which has kind of a slow feel to it, although the drumming gets quite fast, also the vocals on this track are even more moving than usual. The other track which grabs me is 'Sleep Does Nothing For You' which contains some of the most roaring guitar riffs played incredibly tight. There is always a time to listen to this band, they seem to have an element to their music which suits every mood. Vex Red are definetly a band to watch in the future.
