Widmore 'Hostile' Album Review By Anthony Nicastro

Widmore

Hostile

Independent

Released: June 28, 2019

Album Review By: Anthony Nicastro

Boston Rock Radio

 

On the heels of their EP release, Widmore stays true to their mission statement of blending of rock, metal, R&B, and hip hop and throwing it all into one melting pot. From that pot, comes their EP, aptly named, Hostile. This EP spits out endless energy, which can be heard from beginning to end.   

Opening track, ‘Welcome // The End, comes in with pulsating bass, and ends with killer ending feedback.  In between, there is an R&B vocal pattern which feels like Linkin Park, only much heavier.

From the first couple of seconds, ‘The End’ feels like a full on sprint packed into 2 ½ minutes. Spitting out the words, “Welcome to Hostile,” this is sure to get the listener(s) jumping around.  This song features elements of hardcore, which is very welcoming and brings back memories of underground basement shows. This track also showcases their vocal ability with having the ability to blend two different singers and two different singing styles (low and high). 

The third track, simply titled ‘-’ is a reprise from the opening track with the heavy bass, which also has an AWOLNation feel to it, which I’m very much a fan of. 

‘Has Been’ is easily the most diverse track on the EP.  The track starts out with solid metal rhythms and singing, but then, almost out of nowhere, the song shifts gears into a clean section, giving a chance for the listener to catch their breath before gearing up again with a chant style outro. 

Closing the album, ‘Here All Along,' has an intro that sounds influenced by the Killers, which is nothing to sneeze at.  The chorus is very catchy. The song ends with a single guitar underlying what feels like a monologue, though one line in particular does stand out, “making sense out of madness” before coming to an abrupt end.  

In conclusion, I enjoyed listening to this EP.  It has some extremely strong elements, particularly the second track, which is nearly non-stop energy and is sure to get a crowd going during a live setting.  I do hope that Widmore can tour around New England in 2019, as I feel they would be a fun band to watch live.
