Hope for the Dying review (5/30/09)


Hope for the Dying can easily be described as a "breath of fresh air" in my opinion in this upcoming onslaught of metal. Combining awesome solos, well executed vocals, and catchy choruses, this band is sure to grab your attention. Not only is it great music these guys deliver, but genuine attitudes.

Their debut CD was self-relesed in 2008, quickly gaining positive feedback, and then getting picked up by Strike First records, who would later re-release their debut. The debut CD is a, quite astonishing, first effort. The guitars have some beautiful solos, things a lot of bigger bands in the scene seem to be lacking lately. The vocals are not the best that I have heard, they are more of a scream then a grunt too. One of the things I like the most, is the catchy choruses, a perfect example of this would be on "Into the Darkness We Ride". All of the songs are great though, and not easy to get sick of.

I advise you to keep an eye out for these guys, and I have some high hopes for them in the future. From what I have heard they put on a fantastic live show, and have true genuine attitudes. Go head out and pick up their debut "Hope for the Dying"
