Tribulance-The Aftermath of Lies
Tribulance from Tucson, Arizona (vocalist Mike Vidal, guitarist/backup vocalist Sal Flores, bassist/backup vocalist Gino Silva, and drummer/backup vocalist Brandon Lee) released the long-anticipated "The Aftermath of Lies" this past November. With their 1995 debut, "Trials & Tribulations", almost a faded memory by now, "The Aftermath of Lies" looks to reestablish this HARD and HEAVY metal band and to set things straight. For this tough quartet that means uncompromising lyrics and a straight-up powerful presence that will not back down from it's beliefs! As a matter of reference, Judas Priest, Disturbed, Megadeth, ("Testimony of Apocalypse"-era) Sacrament, Pitts Vs Preps, Sevendust, Exhorder, Damage Plan, (Black-era) Metallica, and Avenged Sevenfold. A run through the smart "The Aftermath of Lies" had me thinking about all of these bands and/or albums. When you set that down next to a vocalist like Mike Vidal (a great front-man whose powerful voice blends the legacy of Rob Halford with the urgency and angst of Mike Patton!) you end up getting a fist in your face recording that it destined to get the pit going!
