All right metal heads, it is time for a new band to rise up and take over the petty little wannabe bands out there, and the band’s name is 3 Mile Scream.
This band has an incredible fusion of Thrash Metal and couple of hardcore breakdowns and topped off with mellow chorus vocals.
Canadian band 3 Mile Scream released their album on Nov. 28, 2006, and so far has had positive comments from different magazines and websites.
The first song is not even considered a song.
It’s more of an introduction to the devastation it’s about to inflict on your ears.
Though it’s smooth and relaxing, you don’t expect the guitar to start off the song “Mourning the Lost” and make you nod your head. Rock on!
Throughout the CD, this band did not use the same riffs over and over like some bands that play the intro, chorus, middle, chorus, and end.
This band played the intro, different riffs, chorus, metal, chorus, solo/breakdown, and end.
A variety of music was given, and I appreciated all of it.
Songs that stood out from the rest were the tracks: “Our Blackened Sun,” “Dare to Question,” “What Once Was” and “Apathy.”
Small solos and incredible breakdowns blasted through the headphones and impressed me the way it was structured together.
Pretty much in every chorus, there were soft hardcore vocals sounding great with the rest of the song.
The structure was great, the length of the songs, the speed was steady, and the beats were understandable.
The only negative parts of this album were the soft chorus throughout all the songs.
I’m not a big fan on these softies, but people who have a different taste than me would appreciate it more.
I give this CD a 9.5 out of 10.
To the members of this band, I say, ‘Keep up the great work, 3 Mile Scream’, and for you listeners at home, if they come in a town near you, check this new band out.
