Rising- To Solemn Ash (Exile on Mainstream EOM055)

Rising is a three piece Copenhagen metal band and this is their debut record recorded in 2011. The band had previously released a four track EP and a 7” single. I saw them perform a couple of times before they had any releases out. The band has really changed their sound and are much more focused and perhaps less aggressive than I remember. Anyway, the current band is Jacob on the guitars, Henrik on bass and vocals, and Jacob on drums. The CD features 10 tracks of heavy riffing stuff with intense playing from the entire band. The promo material highlights that the bands lyrics are quite deep and cover interesting subjects and not your usual, love, sex, drugs and rock and roll stuff. I would have to say that unless you really listen carefully, the lyrics will just pass you buy as the pronunciation with the way he sings in a very forced manner, makes it not that easy to follow. I don’t know if the regular CD comes with the lyrics but this would be very helpful. If you are into aggressive metal with some complex riffing stuff, check out his rising new band and they are really nice guys also. Check out the video from the new record below.
