ANOTHER LOST YEAR--ALIEN ARCHITECH (EMP RECORDS)
This active rock band from Charlotte, N.C. has brought the rock scene to its feet, they have a new album that is nothing less than… what is the best word to describe something that is from the heart and is not afraid to bring out the best of them? ANOTHER LOST YEAR has been touring to get their music out to the world and they have taken it by storm. They open ALIEN ARCHITECH with JEFF DANIELS speech to a college about how America is not the greatest country in the world, then they hit you hard with their single WOLVES. They have beating drums accompanied by hard and electrifying guitars, all matched to CLINTON CUNANAN’s vocals. ALY has figured out how to reach their audience while still maintaining who they are as a band. In the song THIS IS LIFE, the lyrics that stuck out to me the most were I WATCHED YOU BLEED, YOU LOST YOUR WAY AND YOU LOST IT ALL…YOU KNOW THIS IS WERE YOUR HEADED…THERE IS NO WAY OUT, I feel like this song is about struggling with life and not being able to dig yourself out of a hole that you created yourself, you can either get yourself out or you will be stuck. They slow things down a bit, with HE TOOK BEAUTIFUL AWAY, it is soulful and deep, with rhythmic guitars and melodious drumming. Definitely worth a listen for rockers.
