Review: In this overly saturated genera/market with a plethora of artists coming out of the woodwork, armed with nothing more than a PC, Microphone, a loud guitar and a crappy sounding CD — it’s nice to know there are a few bands that can still rock out These so-called artists I speak of manage push their music out to the world and much of it is substandard to say the least. So what do bands like Lamb of God, Pantera, Brand New Sin and Infanteria have that Armored Theory don’t? Not much if you ask me save the multi million dollars promotional machines and major record label support. Armored Theory break the mold in half with their powerhouse sound and amazing songs that will sizzle both the novice and advanced listener alike. These 4 tracks Ride deliver aggressive yet hooky music that has a deep seeded Heavy Metal roots. The playing skills of the band is red hot and the production value is rock solid for an Independent Artist. Musical overtones that will remind you of acts like Pavement, Kasabian, Wolf Parade and even Bleed the Sky. Right now after hearing their music — allow me to go on record and say Armored Theory is what we’ve been waiting for musically. I don’t say stuff like that often. All in all this debut EP is a very well rounded release that has much to offer. Apparently there are still a few bands out there believe in melting your face, making your ears bleed and blow you out of your chair all at the same time. Shame on me for thinking otherwise! Conclusion: Armored Theory stands out from other Indie-Hard-Rock artists in a good way within this very saturated market. Their answer to mundane music is to deliver their unique and powerful sound that’s a breath of fresh air, aggressive and a signature sound that refuses to be pinned into submission.
Final Rating: 4/5 Stars
