Album/Artist: Faces of Eve – ‘Self Titled’
Release Date: 25th August 2017
I’m not gonna lie, I’d not heard of the Face of Eve before now. So, this is a new experience and I had no idea what to expect.
First off, these guys are really mad at their ex! There is clearly some serious pent up aggression toward them which shows in their lyrics and they breakdowns. Someone clearly fucked these guys over and they really aren’t happy about it. The positive spin on this is that it suits their musical style. It’s got that pop punk style, mixed with some pretty aggressive core type vibes. These guys know what they’re doing that’s for sure!
There are a few things on this record which does grate on me a little…They have beasty riffs, drums are big as fuck, but vocals are short of the aggression. They are little too ‘pretty’ I think. Don’t get me wrong, this guy has some serious talent. He can sing! Like really sing! But I feel there are areas where a shout, scream, bellow whatever could have been used to show how fucked off they are! The music and lyrics show their angry, but vocals themselves are too…nice!
As a whole though, this album was great…these guys are up and coming and deserve your attention.
