Of Mice & Men Restoring Force Review

Of Mice and Men Restoring Force Cover

The initial impression of “Restoring Force” is that this album showcases a real maturity and attitude change within the group, as well as a willingness to experiment with different rock genres, such as nu-metal, alternative, and even hard rock. Aaron Pauley cements himself beautifully within the band as their new bassist and clean vocalist, while Austin Carlile improves his vocal game, bringing more emotion than ever to his already evolving vocal range. In tandem, Carlile and Pauley become a vocal powerhouse and it reflects throughout the whole album.

Let’s break it down song by song.

Public Service Announcement: This song comes out roaring right off the bat, which is what you want from an opening track. Austin Carlile makes it evident that he’s pissed about something and makes it every clear. This song does a great job setting the theme for the record, as any great album opener should. It ranks as a favorite tracks on the record.

Feels Like Forever: Aaron makes his vocal debut on this track and he starts it off with a bang. His clean, melodic voice complements the guttural growling and screaming of Carlile wonderfully. Carlile gets some oomph in his screams, making this track powerful and in your face. Lyrically, this song is very emotional, and it seems that Austin is attempting to reach out to the listener in a sort of consoling way. The evolution of the band’s songwriting is really debuted here.

Bones Exposed: This song gets right in your face from the start, with a crushing riff and punishing drum beat. This album’s cut single is most definitely one to savor, and would make great song to introduce showcase OM&M to those who aren’t familiar.

Would You Still Be There: This song has a very unique nu-metal/alternative vibe, which is very interesting. Lyrically, it’s a little repetitive, which could become displeasing for some listeners. Although, a nice bonus in the song is that we get a small, not overly-technical guitar solo.

Glass Hearts: The sound of this song is very reminiscent of track from their previous album, “The Flood”. The track is also another emotionally charged lyrical piece, with such examples as “This is not a home, they don’t even see me” and “The scars on my body, they don’t even bleed. I only do this for you to see” The track seems to be and anthem in the making for their teenage fan base.

Another You: Aaron Pauley steals the show yet again with another great vocal performance alongside the screaming of Austin Carlile. This song has a very rock ballad like feel to it. When played live, this could be one of the songs where fans would pull out the lighters and sway to the beat. It is easily one of their most emotionally powerful songs to date.

Break Free: This song has a very similar sound to the band, Bring Me the Horizon, especially from their latest album, Sempiternal. It’s a great sounding song if you happen to be a fan of both Bring Me the Horizon and Of Mice & Men. It is a little soft for the group’s usual sound, but it place nicely into the flow of the album as a whole.

You Make Me Sick: This song kicks off with an incredibly heavy riff, almost stretching into the hard rock spectrum, with hints of Breaking Benjamin in the mix. This track could do without the scream that Carlile makes halfway through the song that sound like he’s being choked during the breakdown. Other than that, this cut reestablishes this tempo set early in the album.

Identity Disorder: This track is, unfortunately, another very lyrically repetitive song that borderlines on annoying because of it. There is a Three Days Grace vibe throughout the electronic/guitar driven beat, as well as the vocal style Carlile displays in the track. Fans of Three Days Grace should give this song a listen, for sure.

You’re Not Alone: The album’s first single is a very catchy tune, with an upbeat riff. This song is another emotionally uplifting piece, with Carlile letting the listeners know through the lyrics, that he supports all of those going through whatever personal issues they may be enduring. This also is another good track that exemplifies the band’s sound.

Space Enough To Grow: The album’s finale is a great way to conclude this album. Aaron Pauley takes over one last time on vocals and delivers an incredible performance, sealing the album shut with a four-minute piece of melody and emotion.

In all, we are treated to a new, fresh sounding Of Mice & Men that, once they polish off small cracks, such as lyric structure and vocals, could well become an unstoppable juggernaut metalcore/ post-hardcore.

Standout Tracks.

Slayer

Following a summer of storming through Europe, South America and Mexico while topping the bills at solo shows and major festivals, Slayer will headline its first North American tour in two years.

The tour will include the band’s previously announced return to New York’s Theatre at Madison Square Garden and the Hollywood Palladium, venues the band hasn’t performed at in 25 years.

Slayer – Tom Araya/bass vocals, guitarist Kerry King, drummer Paul Bostaph, and guitarist Gary Holt, who continues to fill in for the late founding member Jeff Hanneman – will have Gojira and 4ARM support on all dates.

Tickets for all dates on Slayer’s U.S. tour, go on sale beginning this Friday, September 6. Log onto www.slayer.net for complete on-sale dates and ticketing information.

Chiodos Joins the Razor & Tie Roster

ChiodosRazor & Tie recently announced the addition of influential post-hardcore giants Chiodos to its worldwide label roster. The band is currently well into the writing process of their forthcoming new studio album, which will be released through a newly created band label imprint via Razor & Tie.

The new music sees founding members Bradley Bell, Pat Mcmanaman, Derrick Frost, and Matt Goddard reunited with charismatic founding front man, Craig Owens and also introduces fans to the band’s newest member, guitarist Thomas Erak (formerly from The Fall Of Troy).

Chiodos’ Craig Owens comments, “We’re very excited to be working with Razor & Tie. The label is one that we as a band have looked to as a source of integrity filled rock music for some time now. Having our own imprint gives us the opportunity to be as creative as we choose, while also giving us a way to get it to the fans in a direct and focused way. This will be the first time we have released music together, since 2008. To say that we are anxious is an understatement.”

Chiodos’ Bradley Bell adds, “We’re extremely excited to do the Warped tour again. It’s a tour we first did seven years ago that helped define us as a band and as people. After writing new material for the past few months, it will be very relieving to get back on the stage again and play music for our friends and fans. There needs to be more labels like Razor & Tie out there. I feel like they actually understand the bands motives and will do what it takes to help us present our vision. It’s going to be a fun adventure that we are about to embark on with them.”

Formed in 2001 in Davison, Michigan (just outside Flint, MI), Chiodos released two full length studio albums with lead vocalist Craig Owens (All’s Well That Ends Well and Bone Palace Ballet) resulting in sales of over 500,000 units and 740,000 digital tracks in North America alone. All’s Well That End’s Well (2005) debuted at #3 on the Billboard Heatseekers Chart and Bone Palace Ballet (2007) debuted at #5 on the Billboard Top 200 Chart and #1 on the Billboard Independent, Alternative, Rock and Hard Rock Charts.

During a well-documented brief time apart from Chiodos, lead vocalist Owens formed/played with new band D.R.U.G.S. and Chiodos released their third album, Illuminaudio in 2010. Owens reunited with Chiodos in early 2012 and soon after added guitarist Thomas Erak. During the last year, Chiodos played a handful of high profile U.S. shows and toured the UK in early 2013 as part of an annual Kerrang! Magazine branded tour. Chiodos has graced the covers of Alternative Press three times and have received accolades worldwide praising the band’s innovative and exhilarating sound. The band has toured extensively headlining the world over, as well as touring with bands such as Linkin Park, Coheed And Cambria, N.I.N., Alice In Chains, The Devil Wears Prada, Bad Religion and many more.


Ed Banger Records To Release 10 Year Anniversary Compilation June 11

Led by Busy P (AKA baseball-capped, head honcho Pedro Winter), Ed Banger Records has risen from low key Parisian rock n’ roll cool, to become one of global clubland’s most colorful and recognizable music outlets. It could be said they’ve ascended to maturity yet, in many ways, Ed Banger remains gleefully youthful, holding to the spirit of the party – a stable of DJ-producers with a huge sense of fun and old-fashioned loyalty to each other and their fans criss-crossing the world. In celebration of the label’s 10th anniversary, Ed Banger Records will release a compilation titled Ed Rec Vol. X on June 11 in conjunction with Because Music. The 14-track album is available to pre-order now on iTunes.

Ed Rec Vol XEd Banger hasn’t put a full compilation out since Vol.III in 2008 and the time is ripe. All their artists contribute exclusive tracks, from long-standing label figureheads Justice, who soon release their own live album, to new disco-house kid on the block, Boston Bun. The Balearic android cocktail-disco slowie ‘The Beach’ by Breakbot sits easily with DSL’s sleaze-funk electro throbber ‘In Your House’, and there’s plenty more, from Mr Oizo, Feadz, Cassius, SebastiAn, Krazy Baldhead, Mr Flash and Mickey Moonlight. As if that wasn’t enough, Ed Banger are taking their birthday party around the world. They started with a spectacular 7000 capacity rave in Paris live streamed on You Tube with more than one million viewers, followed by a May 3 performance in London, and will venture on to Brussels, Barcelona, Los Angeles, Tokyo, New York City, Montreal, Mexico, Sydney and Berlin in the coming months.

Over the years, Ed Banger has released music by everyone from Rick Rubin to LFO to, recently, Laurent Garnier, and the new collection represents such diverse thinking. The imprint’s illustrious history and adventures have been documented in a new photographic book by label designer So Me called ‘Travaille. Famille. Party’ – Work. Family. Party.

As Pedro explains “After managing Daft Punk between 1996 and 2008 I wanted to create my own history. By creating Ed Banger records I launched my own musical adventure in a way. I learnt so much with Daft Punk, I owe them a lot. Celebrating this 10th anniversary is very emotional, I’m proud I managed to write a pretty nice musical chapter in my life. Daft Punk as chapter #1 and Ed Banger records as chapter #2 is pretty cool.”

A decade in, Ed Banger shows no sign of slowing down. “I am a happy boy. It’s been 10 years of fun, travel, hard work and discovery. I feel lucky too, I met some strong artists, they are Ed Banger records. My main goal is to keep challenging ourselves. We are an alternative label, we are free to go where we want.”

1/ Mr. Oizo – “IntroX”

Throwdown Enters The Studio, New Album Later This Year

Throwdown BandSouthern California heavy music giants, Throwdown, are in the studio working on their next full length record, with Zeuss mixing.

The new, yet to be titled effort, is the follow up to Deathless, which came out in 2009 highlighted by the tracks: “This Continuum,” “Burial at Sea” and “The Scythe.”

Vocalist, Dave Peters, offers a statement on the current state of the band and the mindset behind making this next record:

“It’s really exciting, if not a little nerve-wracking to be recording again. It has been almost four years since Deathless came out, which is about twice as long as the time between albums before it. While that has probably been annoying for fans that have been waiting and expecting a new record, it has also been the best thing for the writing process for the new album.

“I’m really meticulous when writing and arranging even the simplest riffs and songs, so I like to take my time. It has been strange and nice having the freedom to come back to a song or part several weeks later with a different perspective after hitting a wall with it.

“We’re taking a very minimalist approach with these songs, more like Vendetta and (the first half of) Haymaker. I avoid putting the cart before the horse, but I see the songs on the record coming out stripped down and yet still refined. A two-minute song can arrive at the same place as one that fucks around for six, and while it’s more challenging to get there in less time, it is a lot cooler when you do. I’ve been going back to that when I find myself maybe adding parts or lines that are at risk of being superfluous.

“I’m very proud of Deathless and all the work that went into it, but it wasn’t a record that Throwdown fans expected. It was really polarizing on account of that. I’m simply not looking to continue down that stylistic road with these songs. This is going to be a hard record. I look forward to making it as much for myself as for longtime fans of the band.”
