      A brilliant album from these young rockstars, personally they bring something fresh to the table. An

      Rise To Remain - City of Vultures


      So who has heard of Iron Maiden? Of course you have, well Bruce Dickingsons offspring, Austin Dickingson is the lead vocalist for this band. I have seen and met them multiple times and have to say they are all lovely guys, even if they do produce 'scary' music in my Mothers words. I first heard of these back in 2010 when they supported Trivium at Wulfrun Hall, that was also when I first met Austin, got stuck in a mosh pit with him and didn't even realise, when I figured out who he was I honestly almost chucked up, no he's not ugly, he's rather good looking!

      They went quiet for a while after that tour but I listened to them a lot and gradually became a big fan. I bought their stuff off iTunes and eagerly waited for their album, whilst going to every show they played (every show possible might I add) I feel proud to say that they know who I am now and I get along well with them.

      And may I point out that they are NOTHING like Iron Maiden.

      This album was released in 2011 with the following band members:


      Austin Dickinson - lead vocals
      Joe Copcutt - bass guitar
      Will Homer - rhythm guitar
      Pat Lundy - drums
      BenTovey - lead guitar

      ==Favourite Tracks==

      This Day Is Mine

      I think that this band have a great potential, and their talents show very clearly through this album, now I like this track because it starts off with a catchy rhythm, then beat comes in and it is consistent which is what, I find, great. The vocals are brilliant and Austin sounds nothing like his dad, which I like. It's fresh for the new generation of Rock (which is in need of some help lately) Some excellent lyrics to this track as well as a catchy bass line, too. Perfect!


      Talking In Whispers

      This track starts off perfectly, a great way of catching attention, this is what music is all about. For some reason it puts a smile on my face. They have really captured the sound of rock, they are hope! The lyrics to this track could mean something to someone. Such a deep beat, gets your head nodding and your foot tapping. I would love to hear this one live! I bet the atmosphere would be great and I can almost hear the crowd singing it back to the band in my head. Totally a track you should check out. One of my favourites off the album.


      Power Through Fear

      A nice heavy track, just what I like. Excellent vocals as usual as well as a great gripping beat! I love the bass line to this track. The lyrics are kind of mind blowing to me, they are just amazing. I love this track a lot and play it a lot. So it's a 100% recommendation. If you like Trivium or Bless The Fall, this is your band and this is a track you should definitley look into for a taster.

      Nothing Left

      This was out before the album, I actually bought this from iTunes ages ago and it has been on my top played for months, not budging from 4th place. It has a great rhythm to it and some belting vocals from Austin. The beat gets your foot tapping, it switches tempo's but that's what makes this a catchy track. A spankingly brilliant riff in there to make it an ultra tasty track, too.

      We Will Last Forever

      Now when you look at the title you think, that could be an acoustic. No far from it. It is a kind of slow one, but the tempo is mid so it's not fast and it's not slow and there is screaming in it. The other thing I like about this band is when they are screaming you can understand what they are saying. The chorus is beautiful and Austin's talents really do shine here.

      Roads

      This track starts off nice and slow with a light beat that will grab your attention, when the vocal comes in, it becomes clear what kind of track this is. Brilliant lyrics to this track, I must say. For a fairly new band, they are really climbing that ladder and making themselves known. A meaningful song. Lovely one, too, check it out.



      Over all, this band are, as I said, bringing hope to the rock industry...I mean the bands that are coming out this generation are appauling...We Are The In Crowd..seriously? It's been done before by a band called Paramore. I say get rid of the new pop punk bands and just let all the heavy metal bands like Rise To Remain who understand what Rock music is REALLY about. They are a good example and more bands should take a leaf out of their book, none of this "He broke my heart wah wah" crap.

      Great beats, great lyrics, epic vocals, flawless rhythms, just what a good band should be providing and this is what this band provide. I recommend them totally, 100% Fans of Trivium should love them.


      Thanks for reading.
