TOBAIAS "Demo #1" Demo Cdr 2009

Posted by Jimmy | Posted in , , , , | Posted on 1:19 PM


I started to play the first track and immediately i have been sticked against the wall!. Amazing blasting Emocore played quite fast with intensity and strenght coupled with some beautiful quieter parts!.All is pretty well controlled and the vocals are sung with passion and conviction being slightly tortured at times.You have some musical parts with dual sung vocals.
That band might be huge in a near future.They have all the potential to be one of the major bands of the French Emocore Scene!.A cross between Anomie,Fingerprint,L'Invention De Morel and even Amanda Woodward.Time to put a reord out....
