Just a year ago the future looked bright for Emphatic, as their major label debut album Damage was climbing the Billboard Heatseekers charts and the group's single for Bounce was climbing up the rock radio charts. With the band about to head out on the road as a part of the Carnival Of Madness Tour alongside rock heavyweights Theory of a Deadman, Alter Bridge, Black Stone Cherry, and Adelitas Way, tragedy struck. The group's front man suffered a career halting injury when he fractured his larynx, leaving them without a singer and threatening to tear everything apart that they had worked so hard for.
The band then hired a new front man Toryn Green and got right to work. Toryn Green has had his fair share of success in the hard rock world as the leader singer of multi-platinum rock band FUEL, and the touring singer for Apocalyptica. Green wrote and recorded FUEL s fourth album Angels & Devils for Epic Records and made many TV appearances including The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.
Armed with a new dynamic singer, Emphatic were determined to rise again. The band entered Validus Recording Studios in Los Angeles and began recording their sophomore album with their backs up against the wall. The band came together and poured their energy their new album Another Life. The album is a story of triumph in the face of adversity that scream with the intensity of a band entering another life.

So when I heard that Patrick had left the band I was super bummed as I wondered how they would move forward. But as soon as I heard that Toryn Green was replacing him I was super excited as like a previous reviewer I loved the Fuel album "Angels and Devils" and thought Toryn would be a perfect fit.
So after much waiting and watching the mail box (I live in Australia and they don't sell bands like Emphatic in the shops, so thank god for Amazon), my CD arrived in the mail and after giving the album a few spins all I can say is WOW!!!! There simply are not enough superlatives to describe how great this album is.
The songwriting is first class, the songs are catchy as hell and Toryn as usual is in fine voice. I could rank all the songs, but every song is great, there is no filler and this is my nomination for modern rock album of the year. I have to say that I particularly like the re-make of "Time is Running Out" which was a song that Toryn wrote in his previous band For the Taking.
All I can say is do yourself a massive favour and buy this album, I guarantee you won't be disappointed. I know that all my friends and family will be getting the new Emphatic album for Christmas \M/
