I couldn’t stop listening to this trying to figure out who they sounded like, which was just out of my grasp. Yeah, they’ve got a metal-rock sound with pretty distinctive vocals, but then it hit me. Survivor. As in “Eye of the Tiger.” It’s in there somehow until about track ten. With all that, I can’t actually say that it’s unlistenable. There’s a nice balance in gruffness and melody and the drums aren’t buried in the mix, which is nice since they do some pretty interesting things without throwing off the song.
