It always brings an extra big smile to my face when I get to review a band from sunny Durban, my hometown.
The Album, is the newest release from Minority For The Masses. It features remixed and mastered songs from their previous E.P's, as well as 5 new songs thrown into the mix. Making for a pretty epic 13 track CD.
This band started in 2011, and I truly think they have come a long way. Their sound is tighter, and the guitar riffs are just insane.
The band is made up of:
Jon Perry - Guitar and Vocals
Jake Blackwell - Guitar and Vocals
Matthew Baxter - Bass and Backing
Jarred Baney - Drums
With a guest appearance by Jared Gunston.
This album has a good 'jump around in your room, with your middle fingers up' kind of feel, with epic electric guitar solo's that allow for your air-guitaring to take centre stage!
Their 'Rise Against', mixed with 'Staind', and a dash of 'Skillet' sound is quite something, and I, personally, am very keen to watch the progress of this band as they grow within their own genre.
