Rise To Remain impressed me a lot with their fantastic EP Bridges Will Burn and I eagerly anticipated a full length album from the band, which they have now in 2011 delivered with City Of Vultures.

The album includes the singles `Nothing Left,' `The Serpent,' and `Power Through Fear,' all of which are pretty indicative of the album as a whole: Heavy sections, melodic choruses, guitar solos and fun double kick patterns from the excellent Pat Lundy.

Colin Richardson ably handles the production, managing deftly to keep both the heaviness and melody that the band deliver without one overpowering the other and without just creating a bland radio-metal sound.

The album features re-recording of the earlier tracks `Nothing Left,' and `Bridges Will Burn,' which benefit from the improved production job and slicker performances. Some fans will doubtless find it a little overproduced and commercial, but repeat listens should help uncover the heavy songs underneath.

Standout tracks include the aforementioned `The Serpent,' as well as `Talking In Whispers,' and the album highlight `Illusions.'

Overall, Rise To Remain are a hugely talented British Metalcore act that you ought to check out if you are into the genre. They aren't furiously original, but they play this type of music incredibly well. City Of Vultures is a strong album which brilliantly fulfills promise that the band made with their earlier EPs.

After (controversially) gaining much attention due to the vocalist being the son of legendary front man Bruce Dickinson it has become a trend to bash this bands efforts, putting all their achievements down to the vocalist being "Born with a silver spoon in his mouth".

It should have become apparent after the stellar EP "Bridges Will Burn" That RTR were indeed talented, but if the naysayers need any more proof then "City Of Vultures" should show that RTR are something very special.

It is impossible to not comment heavily on Austin Dickinson, he brings a startling vocal range to RTR, with opener "The Serpent" he shows Oli Sykes style rasps and grunts one second, before moving on to a soaring, pitch perfect chorus. One could go a step further and say that this opener perfectly sums Austin up vocally, one minute he can have gutturals to match Parkway Drive, the next, melodic singing that could challenge any auto-tuned pop singer. And for those curious, there is indeed a twang of Bruce audible in Austin's more harmonious moments.

The other members of RTR more than deliver, this record is full of ripping solos, frantic and complex drum beats, and SHOCK a metal band with an actually audible bassist! For those tired of repetitive metalcore bands (yes, I would class RTR as metalcore) who simply rely on chugging and breakdowns will find a refreshing and satisfying album.
Production wise this album is very well done, all instruments receive their attention, no instrument overshadows and bleeds over the others (A trend in a lot of metal albums recently) resulting in an album with a balanced sound. I feel like I am actually listening to a performing band, rather than a bunch of pieced together lines and samples, a big accomplishment for sure.

"City Of Vultures" Really is a fantastic release, one which has caused me to become an even greater fan of these guys.
Very excited to see what comes next.

The songs all sound the same in some way on this album, but luckily they are nice to listen to. Ok, so really there are more like 4 different songs on here, not just one, but the level of similarity is quite worrying if you think ahead of the next album. That said, production is spot on (quite amazing on the clarity of some of the more complex chords actually) and the guitar work is really great.

If Rise to Remain manage to diversify the songwriting a bit more they will really "remain" one day.

Another album I bought after seeing in advertised on the Iron Maiden website. The vocalist is none other than the son of Bruce Dickinson, sadly he hasn't inherited his dad's talent. Teenage fans of screamo will enjoy this, I sadly did not.

I love this album and literally can't put it down. More or less every song on this album is ace, with shredding guitar riffs and strong vocals. But don't expect Austin Dickinson's strong vocals to be just like his dad's Bruce Dickinson, he is the new breed from the new generation of metalcore singing, mixing both screaming and clean vocals. Buy it, listen to it, and crank it up full blast.
