Manchester Academy 3 with GUN and The Wild Lies - A review by Paul Cooke of Manchester Rocks
Our debut E.P 'Unorthodox Satisfaction' Reviewed by Kennedee Jo Karine of Manchester Rocks
Their debut album Unorthodox Satisfaction Is in a class of its own, they are a refreshing band with an intense sound to match perfectly. Unorthodox Satisfaction gives a look at the impressive guitar skills with many solos, the solos create a sense of excitement and eagerness to hear what comes next; through the album the guitar continues to impress with volume, scaling and alterations where no riff sounds the same.
The drums are spectacular and powerful especially when the drums are the start to the song as in the song Blinded Paradise. There are main focuses on this stunning instrument and it's skills. On many occasions through out the album there are drum solos , they are all clever and precise which maintains the importance of drums in a song. Another song proving it's importance is the bass, especially when the focus is concentrated on the surprisingly strong bass line accompanying every song on this EP.
Within the song Unorthodox Satisfaction it begins gentle with an acoustic guitar taking the main focus until the bass overpowers and hardens the song, it makes room for the rest of the song paving the way for an incredible song, which becomes one of the most intriguing song on the album.
Over all, the band deserve wide spread attention for this ep. Not many bands can create such a unique sound and such an unbelievable listening experience. This band are going places and will have no problem getting there by the sounds of it.
