If nothing else, then at least listen to the opening riff of the title track of this second album by Danish The New Low. That riff is to die for!
The guitar work is definitely The New Low's forcé. It is
inventive, fun and mixes elements from Iron Maiden to S.O.D., from punk over
rock to thrash. In that respect, this is indeed a wonderful album with loads of
energy and charm.
On the down side, I miss more variation in the vocal performance. It is a joy to
get a diversion from Christian's screaming in the shape of clean vocals in A
Faded Photograph, Drown and Going Nowhere. More of that, please!
As a whole, this is a listen-worthy album which should give most fans of the
crossover genre enjoyable moments, but there are a couple fillers in there which
don't quite make the grade.
Anyway, check it out - it's got good energy!
