Breathe seems to be more radio friendly because of it’s slightly poppier nature, but Dead City Souls don’t really lose the hard rock element in this track and it’s still a key feature.
There’s a killer guitar riff in Save Me and Dead City Souls uses all the metal to their advantage whilst sticking to the hard rock style vocals over the top. There’s a cool arpeggio style guitar piece towards the end of the track too, which is in the style of Avenged Sevenfold.
Say Goodnight is a track with a killer guitar solo. Hurt No More sounds somewhat similar to Say Goodnight, even featuring a guitar solo at pretty much the exact point in the song. There is little variation between these tracks. They’re both good, but they’re a bit similar.
Watch The World Burn is the final track on the album and it’s more punk in nature. It speeds up and has some cool group vocals. It’s a step towards something a little unique for this band.
This EP is only short, but the band have already really found their sound. A real hard rock primal noise that will only allow this band to build further. It’s a really promising start for such a young band. I think with a bit more honing, the band could take this from hard rock into something truly special.
