Remember back in the mid-nineties when a band called Live broke big with a wonderful record entitled “Throwing Copper”? Live still exists and records music I’ve read, but apart from that I’m not sure if they have great relevance to the modern rock scene.  

Where am I going with this? Well, my point is that Evolocity from Phoenix, Arizona owe a lot to Live both in terms of sound and feel. Evolocity frontman Aaron sounds quite a bit like Live’s Ed Kowalczyk. This is extremely obvious if you listen to the song “Too Far” which supposedly is the band’s first single.  

The album has a great production, the mix is perfect (done by Toby Wright who some might know from his work with Korn and Alice In Chains), in fact everything sounds great.  

Yes, the sound is heavy, but ultimately what we have here is a rock album that caters for the US semi-metal market, referring in many ways as it does to a style that was predominant in the early to mid-nineties, garnished with a bit of the heavy production that the US market has seen work commercially with Pantera, Slipknot and Evanescence. I’m sorry, but I don’t really buy it. Even though the band is playing around with turntables and saxophones, it all turns out a tad too perfect and polished, if you know what I mean.
