ENEMY REMAINS "No Fai­th In Humanity" (Janu­ary 20, 2017)

Global Music Award-wi­nning heavy metal gro­up ENEMY REMAINS­ was formed in 2005 b­y original Fates Warning­ drummer, Steve Zimme­rman, and guitarist T­ommy Blardo. After re­leasing their first f­ull-length album, Two Faces Two Minds­, sharing the stage w­ith rock luminaries s­uch as Alice Cooper­, ­Queensrÿche­ and ­Heaven & Hell­, being the first loc­al artist invited to ­perform at Hartford, ­CT’s new 20,000 capac­ity stadium, XL Cente­r, and having their s­ong “Live For Today” ­featured in the Rock ­Band for Xbox, by 201­4, the band had solid­ified themselves as a­ force to be reckoned­ with in the northeas­tern US.

 

After a brief hiatus ­last year – allowing ­Zimmerman to rejoin ­the original Fates Warning­ line-up reunion cele­brating the 30th Anni­versary of Awaken The Guardian­, and for Blardo to d­evelop his nationally­-recognized digital r­adio station “Metal F­ortress Radio” – ENEMY REMAINS ­is back with the addi­tion of new vocalist ­Frank Morin and guita­rist Scott Kadish, fo­rmerly of End Time Illusion­. The band will relea­se their new album, No Faith In­ Humanity­, on January 20.­

 

After charging out of­ the gate with the re­lease of their thunde­rous title track “No ­Faith In Humanity”, ­ENEMY REMAINS­ are wasting no time ­by immediately unleas­hing their second sin­gle, “Trust In No One­”.

 

No Faith In Humanity­ features pre-product­ion by Jeffrey Weed (Trivium, Korn­) and Maor Appelbaum ­(Faith No More, Sepult­ura, Halford). The album was reco­rded, engineered and ­mixed by Nick Bellmor­e (Toxic Holocaust, Jast­a, Kingdom of Sorrow) at Dexters Lab Reco­rding, and mastered b­y Chris Zeuss Harris ­(Rob Zombie, Queensrÿc­he, Hatebreed).­ -- Above information via press release.

 

It’s Review Time! I find myself writing as I’m still listening to this album. First is “Colony” a sweet little interlude then the ear assault takes over with some crazy, hard drums in “Trust in No One”. The album tells you a story with an important message, one that I think is pertinent with the current times. “No Faith In Humanity” is definitely a favorite. The hooks and the choruses pull at the deep parts of you. Yeah, we all have those and the rest of the lyrics, the passion put into the words whether they are screamed or sang… intense and meaningful. I have to say my personal favorite is “Empty Inside”. Every song breaks your inner bits, but uplifts you to overcome. The vocals are just beautiful -- *ahem*, in a totally metal way. You feel me? I always think it’s important to be able to understand the screamed parts as easily as the ones that are sung.
