If my pal Steve played sports, I would always want him on my team, as he always seems to score regarding bands I am going to enjoy.  The latest from Digital Summer is no different.  Just when I think I have heard all of the same different hard rock bands that seem to sound alike, I come across this disc.

 

 


Opening track “Forget You” is a fun way to open the disc, as this is the ultimate F**k Off song.  The guitars added by Clint Lowery don’t suck either.  The thing that stands out unlike several of the bands counterparts is the emotional delivery of the lyrics.  The blending of singing, screaming, and growling all seem to drop in the right areas and add depth to the different tracks.  “Breaking Point” is another strong track.  Another song that builds on this is “Fight Til I Fall.”  “Broken Halo” is a great mid tempo rocker that comes off as a beautiful ballad if you listen to the acoustic version at the end of the disc.  This song helps demonstrate these rockers also have a soft side.

 

 


“Come On” cranks the energy and music back up with a cool riff and a catchy chorus.  “Dance In The Fire” is another strong rocker that leads nicely into the heartfelt “Wanted To Love You.”  What a nice way to lead into the previously mentioned acoustic track.

 

 


I hope these guys get signed and get some major support behind them.  They have the makings of a really good band that I think would really come across well live.
