September 16, 2013 Eve To Adam – Locked & Loaded (Album review)
New York based hard rockers Eve To Adam have been honing their craft over a decade now. In 2001 the band blazed onto the scene with their major label debut Auburn Slip. Since that time the band has released Queens Of Eden (2007) and Banquet For A Starving Dog (2011). With each album the band’s sound has become more clarified and progressed. Their newest offering entitled Locked & Loaded is a much anticipated album fans are ready for.
The current single “Immortal” stands out as a clear winner on the album. The song really brings out the energy and passion that this band has. With the lyrics “I am immortal I will never fade away”, this is one of the strong statements that the band has made with this record. Eve To Adam is proving a point that they are going to succeed by being different than the rest. “Fortune Teller” is another track which stands out. The track is a hard and heavy song with a sound that is impenetrable. It’s the kind of song that smacks you immediately right upside the head with its hard heavy tone and not only grabs your ear but your complete attention as well. “Shut Out The World” is another amazing track that certainly is an epic change of pace for an album that drives you hard with each and every song. It’s a beautiful and amazingly written song both lyrically and emotionally. The chorus has a soft falsetto from vocalist Taki Sassaris. Sassaris shows his diverse vocalization skills proving he can sing at any level that is put in front of him.
Locked & Loaded has great guitar riffs and a melodic sound that is edgy. The album has hook tones that can make even the hardest of a person want to have a good time. Hard rock fans and fans of rock in general are really going to enjoy this album through it’s entirety, honestly there is no way they couldn’t. This album will certainly give Eve To Adam the wide mainstream attention that they not only have worked hard for but deserve as well. Locked & Loaded is a solid release and certainly an album worth going out to buy a copy and give a listen. Cryptic Rock gives this album 4.5 out of 5 stars!
