CALL ME NO ONE: AWESOME NEW #HARDROCK ALBUM BY SEVENDUST DUDES STREAMING IN FULL
When the phrase “hard rock” is uttered in metal circles most people think of drek like Godsuck and Theory of a Deadsuck. Call Me No One should probably be called hard rock too, but theirs is a brand that’s a far cry from the dumbed-down, dunderheaded version that dominates Red State rock radio station; their new album Last Parade is as smart and creative as hard rock gets.
That Call Me No One are a step above is not at all surprising given Clint Lowery’s involvement. The three albums Sevendust released when Clint quit the band are severely lacking in the songwriting finesse he brings to the table while the Dark New Day record he put out in the meantime (and the extra two records that finally came out last year) are everything the aforementioned Sevendust albums weren’t. Last Parade feels like a Dark New Day album in that respect; it’s a shade more melodic/poppy then any of Sevendust’s output, but it’s still really heavy at times and it’s got that certain Lowery je ne sais quoi. The two singles the band (or label?) chose to release, “Biggest Fan” and ” Pleased to Meet Me,” are some of the lightest on the album and don’t really represent it as a whole (but they’re still pretty sweet).
Check out the entirely of Last Parade, now streaming at AOL Music (still a thing). Not for nothing, Clint Lowery’s vocals sound fantastic. And the guitar solos, oh my, the guitar solos! Can’t wait to see these guys live.
