Our Score: 4 out of 5 stars
“The Road to Here” is the debut EP release from the Maryland based hard rock band Revolve. Together with producer/Sevendust guitarist Clint Lowery the 5 piece group from Baltimore have released 5 songs that in my opinion will solidify Revolve as one of the top bands to be watching in 2015.
“The Road to Here’s” opening track “Believe” kicks off with an eerie, swirling synth that quickly gives way to an overdriven attack of dual guitars and bombastic drums that are joined by catchy sing along choruses. “Stranded” the second track on the EP has a similar feel as the previous song however features a more straight forward arrangement that would fit right at home on top 40 radio.
The track “Superhero” though still heavy in its approach features a slow building pace that crescendo’s at about the 2:20 mark leading in to a straight to the point guitar solo before quickly reverting back to the songs powerful chorus. Rounding out the release is the song “Scratch” which leaves listeners on a high note and wanting more, just as a great EP should.
With such a solid effort from the bands first attempt I am anxious to hear what they will do next as the future seems bright for Revolve.
