There are two different seasons in my life: the first one when I was a kid of thirteen years old I used to listen to punk and ska music, the second one nowadays I listen Post hardcore and Metalcore bands, but when my head is tired of hear all that noise I break my own musical taste just for relax myself with a more softer sound
As some of you guys probably may have noticed I have a job just for fun in my free time I usually search on myspace to discover some new music, but most of the bands I find are Metalcore, screamo or post hardcore, ï¿½itï¿½s hard to find an alternative band worth to listen, but in one of those occasions I found Come Wind.
Come Wind is a truly talented four piece progressive/indie rock band from Canton Ohio that is super under rated, so now is the time to breakï¿½ these boundaries and give themï¿½ a chance to be a part of our music players. These guys have a solid sound that reminds a lot COME NOW SLEEP of AS CITIES BURN, but why? The guitar riffs are very similar especially, the first time when I heard the intro of ï¿½Life & Only Lifeï¿½ the only one song I could remember was ï¿½Empiresï¿½ of As Cities Burn, then I asked myself:ï¿½ Why Tooth & Nail still doesnï¿½t sign them ?.
Musicallyï¿½ they are talented gents, Aaron Troyer, their lead guitar player has a passion for ï¿½tappingï¿½ in most of the songs, also, you can feel the quality of a tube amp on each song and enjoy a very nice driven sound, the vocals are generally clean but there are some occasionally screams in the songs ï¿½Hereinï¿½ and ï¿½Not Enoughï¿½.
Speaking of lyrics, their messages are spiritually deep and encourage you to do somethingï¿½ good for yourself and for this world, consider the song ï¿½Life & Lifeï¿½ which say: ï¿½I hope you find your way and live, Wanderer Oï¿½ Wanderer I hope you findï¿½ something thatï¿½s real and live/Iï¿½m getting older but not old enough to know what Iï¿½m supposed to do before I dieï¿½, or consider the song ï¿½ï¿½Not Enoughï¿½which say ï¿½I have compassion somewhere inside will you hear it in my words ; or feel it through my hands? ï¿½ I have these hands but whereï¿½s my heart ? where is yours ?.
My favorite track is by far ï¿½Bricksï¿½ because it is a nice piece of art that I can hear once and once again for weeks, but I love all the tracks in this EP.
Overall: This is a great debut EP from a very talented band, with honest-heartfelt and positive lyrics that christian people should listen,ï¿½ definitely if youï¿½re a fan of As Cities Burn, Ocean Is Theory, or any progressive indie rock band with technical and melodic interludes, then you will fall in love with Come Wind.
