POWERMAN 5000--NEW WAVE Pavement Entertainment Release: October 27, 2017 By: Jackie Ryan
The boys of POWERMAN 5000 will be releasing their 11the album NEW WAVE at the end of October. It starts off with FOOTSTEPS AND VOICES, a very powerful song that gets you pumped to listen to what these boys have to say with this new album. Electronica mixed with hard hitting drums really pulls the songs together. SPIDER'S vocals are on point with its raspy-ness. HOSTAGE is a bit heavier and hits you right in the face. Reminds me a bit of Marilyn Manson with a more rock n roll vibe. Ryan Hernandez and Ty Oliver have a good ear for listening to their members and giving it their all throughout the album. DIE ON YOUR FEET, really shows the hard-hitting drums of DJ Rattan. RUN FOR YOUR LIFE brings more electronica and some interesting bass riffs.
The album title NEW WAVE really is summed up by SPIDER’s quote about how they make their music; "After all these years, I feel like the band gets better with every record and tour. I’ve never lost the enthusiasm that I had from those early days and always want to treat each new album as if it’s our first. I’m not interested in the past, just creating the future. A big, loud, crazy future!" It feels like these boys really put their heart and soul into each song and ultimately each album. Make sure to check it out October 27th!!
