This review is from: The Naturals (Audio CD)
'Rumour Has It: Astaroth Has Stolen Your Eyes' was the brilliant first album, very heavy, not much harmony but lots of beatdowns. Since then Catherine have changed singer and bassist and the move really has worked for them. This album 'The Naturals' really is a masterclass in what metalcore should be all about. Stand out song for me is 'Fallacy' but pretty much every aspect of this album is great. If you like bands like Drop Dead, Gorgeous, The Devil Wears Prada, I Killed The Prom Queen, Emarosa, Dance Gavin Dance, Blessthefall and Parkway Drive then this is a must for your CD collection. Pretty much any band on Rise Records is worth a listen, they seem to know where music is at these days.
I hate to say things like these are the next big thing, cos with so many bands making similar music these days it's often the gimmick bands that make it big and true talent like Catherine will just make it big in the underground scene.
Buy this album if you are into any of the bands I mentioned, or even if you are just a metalcore/post-hardcore fan. This is one of those bands you'll be happy you knew about them first.
