Your Role Model’s Dead

Take Hold

If I told you that the drummer from a hardcore/metal band was doing a solo project where he played all of the instruments himself, you might be interested in hearing the record. What if I told you that the majority of this record was acoustic indie-rock? Okay, I just lost a lot of “metal” fans, but I still got the indie-rock fans. Now mix the occasional screaming vocals, chunky metal guitar, and drums that can be soft or really heavy, and an occasional sample or keyboard. I think I just lost a few more people, but for those of you who stayed you’re in for a treat. TtEoK isn’t another “experimental side-project” that horribly mixes these elements into an unattractive piece of self-indulgent shit. No, no, no, this is a great record that never sounds contrived or too metal or not metal enough or too indie-rock… I know what you’re thinking, “there’s no way that it could be that good,” because I thought the same thing before I actually sat down and LISTENED to it. TtEoK shows fans of ALL these genres that they can be combined and done so very well.
