I'm glad Ken and Poppelganger decided to post the past couple of days because I took a break from putting stuff up here for almost a week. The weekend in Grand Rapids was a blast. It was awesome seeing some of my favorite bands in the span of four days. Not to mention the city and the people there are pretty damn cool too; Grand Rapids is proud of Michigan brews. I also got a chance to meet guys from Circling the Drain and Chug Life. By the time I got back on Monday, there wasn't much to review and I needed some time to recover. So here is my first update on here in a good minute.
This is a band that has been here earlier (their demo), and I was curious to see how they progressed seeing that they called this an EP and not a demo this time. The overall quality of the EP compared to their demo is a step forward which is to be expected. I dig the music for sure, but the only thing that turns me off at times it the vocals; I think it would be better if the vocals were a little less prevalent.
