Demise of Eros

Neither Storm Nor Quake Nor Fire - Strike First Records

Like many of Strike First‘s bands, I had never even heard of the Demise of Eros. But really, I can’t think of much to say about them. As I sit here listening to their cd, nothing is really standing out for me, it seems to be just another metal-esque release by a talented band that’s just trying something that’s been done many a time. I’m not really sure who to compare them too, but I can guarantee that if you happen to hear them at some point, they’ll sound like something you’ve heard before. I was impressed by the guitarist(lead), he seems to play very fast and almost all high notes, so it sounds like a solo for the duration of every song. Vocals, like I said sound similar to several other bands like It Dies Today(except with out the annoying screamo whiny melodic voice to go along). The bass lines aren’t as audible as I’d like and don’t seem very complex, but maybe that’s just because I can’t hear them very well. The drummer gets a very fast double kick beat going at times, but it seems when he starts doing it, he kind of neglects the rest of his kit. Lots of the songs have some nice acoustic parts to them too, after listening to several metal tracks, it was a welcome change, although the cd did get kind of old near the end. I found myself gazing longingly at other songs that I’d rather be listening to(eventually I put on different music).

As far as recommending this cd goes, I’d probably try to find a few of their songs first. Lately I haven’t been into the whole “metal” thing as much as I used to be, so maybe my musical tastes in this genre are just slipping. I don’t know, but I’m sure lots of people will be able to appreciate this album, I’m hoping that it will grow on me. the band definitely sounds good, I just wish this ablum sounded different than some many others that I’ve heard over the past few years.
