REVIEW : The Farewell Scene - Broken Halos EP

Band: The Farewell Scene Album: Broken Halos & Clipped Wings Label: N/A Reviewed By: Chris W Tracklisting:
  1. The Love You Seek
  2. Unending
  3. You Count The Stars
With the recent blow up of electro-pop and other sub-genres (the validity of which is debatable because most of the bands are straight up terrible) there are going to be a lot of awful bands that are out to ride the trend and make money, and then there are going to be the ones with an actual heart for the music they’re making.… Continued →

REVIEW : Incrave - Dead End

Finally a review of Incrave. After having it for a few months and the CD continuously getting lost under all the others I have picked up. I saw it today and decided it was time to not let it pass me by again. So, many apologies to Brandon for this one taking so freaking long.

John plays “tasty” guitar  melodies, keys, and is the other primary songwriter. Zachary Wurzbach (Rippy McShrederton) plays bass and rules.… Continued →
