Sierra Leone - Moving Forward Label: Unsigned
Release Date: July 21st, 2009
Introducing San Diego's Sierra Leone is burdensome. It would be easy to focus on their outstanding musicianship, crystalline vocals, or the intriguing artwork they have chosen for their aptly titled first EP, Moving Forward. Though these qualities stand in the forefront of perception, there is something in the band's sound that states that this is merely a palatable starting point to which the Emo/Core scene can progress from. With haunting vocal melodies atop soaring, reverb intensive guitar lines it is ieasy to draw comparison to Circa Survive or The Mars Volta. Add Mike Drysland's frantic, near perfect drumming and steadfast bass lines to create a balance that many bands strive for.
