      Album Review By Anthony Nicastro

      Boston Rock Radio

       

      This album is one of the few that catches my ears with vast diversity of singing styles, ranging from (Phil Anselmo) to Alexi Laiho (Children of Bodom), to Jonny Hawkins (Nothing More), and Daron Malakian (System of a Down). This is never more apparent than on the opening track, "Pan Who I Am," which changes from abrupt, harsh vocals, 'Say it to my face…' to cleans, belting out, 'You don’t know who I am.'

      Prominent drums take the forefront in tracks, such as "Prison."  While some drummers rely on the double kick to do the talking, drummer Stephen Kluesener, lets the pop of the snare do most of the talking.  He does, however, let his feet lose on the appropriately titled track, "Fury." The locked in combo of Chris Gaylord (bassist) tightens everything up.

      Seth Blake has a standout guitar solo in the track, "Ghost" before hearing the line, “Let me go," then going into a short guitar harmony.  

      Wage War has a knack for memorable vocal arrangements and melodies, which plays out nicely in "Me Against Myself," "Forget My Name," and "Take the Fight." Lyrics from "The Linecould easily sum up our current society and its never-ending obsession with our image portrayal on social media, with fitting lyrics, 'Perfect on the outside, broken on the inside.'

      The most in depth song on the album is closing track, "Will We Ever Learn,certainly in terms of lyrics and ambiance. Belting out, 'Let emotion get the away of us / We let it burn, will we ever learn / refusing to let go' before chanting, 'Can you see it now?This is all done over a clean, calm guitar line, along with a quiet(er) drumbeat, to let the vocals take center stage.

      In closing, there is some really good material on this album. Having dual singers opens up a wide range (pun intended) of possibilities. I look forward to seeing them live and where they will go from here.
