Seasons Lost-After the storm
Hailing from Ft Lauderdale, Florida Seasons Lost have opened for Trivium, Days of the new, The Showdown and others. My thought after listening to their debut "After the storm" was this all just one band playing? It's like they are shooting for appealing to wide audience. They have ballads, they get close to thrash pace plus they have lots clean vocals and some vicious growls. However the bulk of the album is one one sound per song. Only a couple of songs contain diverse sounds within on songs. A shame because that last approach is the one that stands out the most for this band. I found their more straight forward hard rock songs to be tight and decent enough, but nothing that special. However the other tracks where really went at it and altered styles really worked. Not perfect because they are a little rough around the edges, but still they were interesting and engaging. Even though this band tried for a broad appeal the album comes across as hit and miss overall, but closer to the hit side.
