Road To Horizon – Faultlines Review

Front copyIt’s interesting to hear a band that simply doesn’t want to conform to one specific genre, and Road To Horizon is certainly one such band, drawing heaviness and melody together to create a great little offering.

Faultlines is both aggressive and soft, and the two different styles juxtapose against one another rather well. The title track gets things moving nicely, getting louder and louder until the harsh vocals kick in – and that’s when you know the band means business because it’s a striking entrance that sticks in your mind for all the right reasons.

Second track Tonight Is Our Night is definitely one of the standout songs of the EP and features plenty of sections to either sing alone to, or bang your head to – needless to say, it’ll be stuck in your head for a long while after you’ve finished listening to it. Unfortunately, things do dip a little with third track Victimised, which does feel a little like a filler track and doesn’t bring anything new to the table, following a very standard format.

However things do end on a high with Sirens, an energetic ending that plays to the band’s strengths to bring Faultlines to a rather epic close. Sure, there are a few creases that need ironing out, but there’s a lot of promise in the four songs – the future looks bright for this up and coming band.
