CD Reviews

The future of hard music.
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Do you like Vision of Disorder or Carcass? Well these two bands would definitely be in your vein of music. The CD opens with Training For Utopia playing "Modus Operandi." In the first 1 min. 30 sec. they flex their extreme music muscle before settling into the first verse which is very reminisent of Coal Chamber. The tempo is then picked up again throughout the rest of the song. The song finishes with Maven(Vocals,Guitar) repeatedly yelling "Liar,liar,liar,liar,liar!" Zao plays a song called "Skin Like Winter". Very harmonious guitars mixed with shrill vocals the songs lyrics are very thoughtful but easy to memorize and pretty soon you find yourself singing along with Daniel(Vocals). The third song and in my opinion the gem of this disc from TFU is "Police John, Police Red." This song is an all time classic. It varries in speed and they even sing at the beginning. At over 7 minutes this isn't a short song. The lyrics and music mix perfectly. It ends with the chant/scream "Come Armegeddon, Come Armegeddon!" The closing piece by Zao is called "Walk on by,Walk on me." Its lyrics deal with the effects the tongue can have when not used wisely. The song fades out to a double kick peddle,grooving guitars, and the lyrics "The tongue creates its tongue creates its tongue...""
