Electric Eyes - Review
We've received a few excellent releases over the summer this year (2012) and this band is definitely an excellent new addition to the pages here. The band just recently formed in 2011 in the UK and have managed to pull together a short 3-track single to release to the masses and introduce themselves as possibly the next great thing in gothic rock.
This short collection of songs is an excellent collection of music, reminiscent very much of the styles of Rosetta Stone
with the hard-driving beats, many layers of grinding guitars, the heavy driving beats and deep, reverberating vocals.
The title track "Electric Eyes" comes on strong as the lyrics state, "like a freight train" barreling down the tracks with the pounding, driving, fast-paced beats with all the layers of variosu driving guitars and the heavy mix of bass, keyboards and deep vocals. Each of these three tracks can easily be favorites for the dark-clad folks at the goth clubs with the driving dance-friendly rhythms. "God Child" carries on in true style and fashion, slowing things down just slightly but not letting up in intensity or quality. The final track "Red Light Love" is a bit more similar to the driving opening piece and settling down right into the solid groove and recipe for gothic rock in it's purest form.
Amidst the new small collection of these gothic rock bands, this one stands out and shines as a new beacon for fans to find and enjoy. With this teaser, we look forward to many more, and hopefully diverse tracks, but always anchored in the solid foundation of gothic rock.
