Editorial Reviews

Product Description

A modern heavy rock sound with melodic vocal hooks and plenty of angst.

Amazon.com

Musical trends change at the speed of light. Hence, Second Coming's heavy grunge rock comes off as almost retro. Of course, that brooding Zeppelin-and-Sabbath-influenced sound was a bit retro from the start, really. And while this Seattle-based quartet does pray to the god of Alice in Chains and Soundgarden on tunes such as "Tonight," it also ably beefs up the testosterone with the thug boogie of "Soft" and moodily waxes atmospheric on "Vintage Eyes." The turgid sense of foreboding on "Free" also hammers home. In spite of occasional pretension and high dramatics on "The War" and "The Song" (in addition to an obvious affection for generic song titles), Second Coming still manage, through pure muscle, to bring grunge up to date. --Janiss Garza

I bought Second Coming's album in October 1998. It rates easily in my top 5 all time favorites. Early on I was afraid if I listened to it too much I would get tired of it. Well, over a year later I love this album more than ever.
Despite all the attempts to place this band along side another, I find it impossible. Second Coming created music that stands alone.
I highly recommend this CD and look forward to the next one.

If Second Coming are short on anything, it's not ambition. It's clear these guys wanna get taken seriously--as musicians, as a band, as songwriters, as people. For the most part they succeed, and succeed well. Their music is hard to describe--I'm tempted to say "alternative", but that word doesn't do them justice--the same exact way that the "alternative" title sounded like an insult to the genius(es) of Soundgarden and Alice in Chains, both of whom have obviously rubbed off on Second Coming considerably. They give rock a ballsy shot in the arm. Make no mistake though--these guys, despite reviving serious early-90s rock (and Sabbath/Zeppelin--inspired classic rock) in a big way, are NOT your transcendent, messianic Creed. Nowhere close. Find your "Higher"s or "With Arms Wide Open"s elsewhere. If anything their lyrics are subtly anti-religious--as is evidenced by the jabs in such songs in "Confessional" and "Soft". These guys are here to make rock music--loud, ostentatious, in-your-face, unapologetic. "Confessional", "Soft" (NOT!), "Afilotimi", "Free", and "the Unknown Rider" all crunch with speaker-quaking ferocity, while "The War", "The Song", and "Travisty" take on more of an acoustic, string-accompanied Zeppelinesque flavor. Electronica influences & loops also permeate the music, often providing a backdrop to the crunching guitar-rock that dominates the album, and sometimes even coming to the forefront--as in the appropriately-titled "Electric Head" which might remind one of Filter.Read more ›

I was a fan of these guys years ago, but the rumor was they were down for the count, so I didn't even bother to keep up with them for their second album. I kinda stumbled across it and I am glad I did. The first album was AMAZING, so it's hard to compare the two. I will say that even the first one took a while to find the groove, but once I got used to the style, it became my favorite album. This album feels a little looser, and it's not produced quite as well (not the fault of the band though). It sounds like maybe the producer did it over a long period of time because the songs have different clarity levels and sounds. Certainly though, the singer is the best voice in rock, in my opinion. On top of all that, he fought in King of the Ring (and wrote a song on 13 about Ultimate Fighting) How much cooler can these guys be? If you are looking for awesome sound, great lyrics and feeling, buy anything by these guys. I heard a few clips of new songs on their website, and they are better than the 13 recording, much cleaner, better choruses, more like the first album. 13 still gets 5 stars though because these guys are the most talented band in modern rock...if you ask me.

Second Coming return with their 2nd recording (first one being independant release L.O.V.Evil) with new singer. The sound is much rounder and heavier than the first album. Adding Travis Bracht on vocals was a pure masterstroke and his combination with Dudley Taft is inspirational. Many people have said that the music is Creed / Alice In Chains like but my view is that this record may surpass anything that these bands have released. Second Coming are certainly more powerful than Creed, happier than Alice In Chains. There are virtually no throw-away tracks on this album but particular highlights include Soft, Vintage Eyes, The Song, The War Look forward to their 3rd release later this year depsite the fact that Dudley Taft the guitarist has now parted company with the band

I was turned onto Second Coming by a friend by the name of Matthew. He praised these fellas and I believed not a word he said. I heard so much about this band that I decided "what the hell" and bought the album. I listened to it and thought it was okay, nothing special. Each time I listened to it, it became better and better. I fell in love with this CD and it hasn't left my CD player in a long time. Anyone who doesn't have this album is missing out on unbelievable music. This CD has touched my soul.

This band blew my mind. To be honest, i just bought the CD cause of the cover. Whoa what a surprise when i listened to the tracks. Was this a debut album? Who is this band? Did Layne Staley form another band? What is this? No, it's not Layne Staley of Alice in Chains. This is Travis Bracht. A singer who has been missing from the world of rock for many, many years. Every single song is a hit just because of the lyrics and his vocal styling. A frontman who actually sings and not screams. Although even when he does scream it sounds like a rock-opera. BEST NEW BAND in a long, long time. Their debut album was just like when I picked up Facelift of Alice in Chains. But i must say that every single song is not only good, but very good.The guitars are crunchy yet accurate. Johnny Bacolas the Bass Player(who actually founded Alice in Chains with Jerry Cantrell) and J. Bergstrom are all musicians and it shows. This album just rocks. Favorite song: ALL OF THEM. Trust me it's the best you'll hear in a while. Melodic, tasteful, dark, moody, operatic, and very versatile. You will hear a lot from these guys. Second Coming out of Seattle. Remember that. They have a new album coming out in the next couple of months title "13". Look for it ... You'll be glad you did.
peace,
alexNchains
