What A Find
on November 5, 2009
After 2 spins of Cry Little Sister I knew I had found my next favorite song (since the original was too). Hours later I bought this album and WOW, I absolutely love listening to it over and over without skipping a track. I just had to get my 5 stars up on Amazon so hopefully other listeners will read it, buy this album and make Seasons After a chart topper.
I think this band has a really nice cross blend of metal and rock that seems to perfectly exemplify the direction of today's thrashier hard rock. I generally favor heavily distorted guitars, metal breakdowns, clean emotional vocals with flavors of growling for accent. Seasons After does this all really well.
When picking favorite bands, I look for lots of contrast; songs that frequently transition from headbanging breakdowns, into clean-sung pretty choruses. On Your Own is an example of how they blend both styles together. I love the frequent break downs the blended guitar licks, the screaming and sung vocals, again for me it's all about contrast and they do it well.
I would say if you like bands like Trivium or Killswitch Engage, you will probably really like this album.
