Odd Project - Lovers Fighters Sinners Saints

Reviewed by
6.0
Odd Project – Lovers Fighters Sinners Saints
Label: Indianola Records
Release Date: April 24, 2007


Who:

This is the first release from Indianola in nearly a year and Odd Project’s second release on the Georgia label. Scene hair-metal was still fairly cool apparently when the band put out their debut in 2004. Not so much these days.


How is it?:

City of Evil sucked and this is what City of Evil would’ve sounded like without the MTV influence. Lots of over-the-top guitars and octave-jumping vocals, but none of it sticks. In a word, “Meh”. Don't expect Victory or Solid State to pillage Indianola for this one.


Common, typical, standard, etc: “Hot Flash”

Leather jackets < leather couches: Avenged Sevenfold, The Showdown, Coheed & Cambria

They used to be an awesome metalcore band before their vocalist left. The new stuff isn't too awful, but it can't touch the old tunes.

The weak emo singer should quit vocal duties except for screaming.

The deeper-voiced strong singer should do lead vocals. He really shines on some of the songs (especially the background vocals of Electro Defy Me).

I do get the City of Evil part...one of the songs has this raspy ass vocal part. I had to make sure I wasn't tripping when I heard it.

Decent cd overall.

Yeah, most of my friends couldn't believe that it was male vocals... Especially in Breakneck SOS.

listen to the whole record and tell me the guitar work isnt awesome. Vocals and Drums may be a little weak, but not the guitars.
