Music Review for Even Heroes - To Be Continued...
The as-yet signed band Even Heroes consists of Nathan Schroyer (vocals), Bruce Curtis (guitar), Billy Law (bass), Matt Chapko (drums) and Thomas Doss (guitar/vocals). The band hails from Fort Smith/Fayetteville, Arkansas.
I stumbled across Even Heroes on MySpace and was very excited when their EP hit iTunes with an album title that simply states To Be Continued. These guys have a sound reminiscent of bands such as Chevelle, A Perfect Circle, Breaking Benjamin and Seether, yet they maintain a style and sound that is original and belongs to them alone. Even Heroes' sound is mainstream Rock that focuses on heavy hitting chords, powerful lyrics, amazing harmony and a unity of sound that flows from each and every member of the band.
With songs ranging in genre from rock to alternative Even Heroes is fast becoming one of my favorite bands and offers a sound everyone can appreciate. If you are looking for the mellower side, then songs like 'The In Between', 'Today is Sunday' and 'Cherish the Rain' are your solution. Searching for something a little harder with powerful bass and alternative feel; then the songs 'Make Me Burn', 'The Highway' and 'The Stand' are what you're looking for. Imagine my shock at discovering Even Heroes is unsigned! If these guys don't get a record deal then there truly is no justice in the world.
I have thrown Even Heroes name out to everyone I know and have done so with confidence. Even Heroes is phenomenal! I cannot find a single song that I don't love, so I am going to do something I have NEVER done with any band. I am going to give Even Heroes a 5-spider rating! I am very anxious to see more from this talented group of guys.
