Welcome to the EvO:R Independent CD Reviews Section.
Artist: Sonic Cult
I would like to take a few minutes to introduce ourselves to everyone.
The EvO:R review section features reviews from various independent musicians that
submit material for our consideration.
I wanted to let you know a little about our review teams collective thoughts on music.
It's important to let the people we review know what we think of their music and how we listened to their creations.
We hold nothing back! The team has been instructed to be honest and respectful of all CD's reviewed.

Can rock music be fun and entertaining without losing its dignity, without becoming something fake? This may not make sense to many, but over time, especially in our days, art is no longer used to carry a message to vent our sorrows. Instead, it has turned into a tool to make money, for screwing our own and others people's life, or just passing time. There's pretty much no meaning.
Songs available on Facebook:
In Radio EP, by Sonic Cult band, we find something. We have a band with a great energetic, fun, catchy sound that may remind you of Foo Fighters, especially their first albums. And that's just the first song, "Up and Down."
"Great Escape" has some Bon Jovi and REM, the guitar riffs are amazingly done by Joe Young, the drum beats created by Oskar Häggdahl and Rozhan Razman's bass lines are incredible, and Mitsuru Kubo’s viola adds such an epic sound to the tracks. Ben Lorentzen's voice has an old-fashioned rock and roll range.
"Don't You Walk Away" continues to advance as far as the development of sound is concerned. This time we are lumbered with something simple. The sound this time is like Genesis meets Duran Duran. Again everyone in the band does their part to create something truly memorable and amazing.
Finally, "Undefended" concludes this album that at first looks to be just another record you probably would hear thousands of time on the radio. However, if you are not convinced by then, with this song you will surely fall in love. The viola is indeed an essential part that gives it a unique touch. The drumbeats are felt, but nothing out of the ordinary; bass lines are subtly there and the guitar riffs once again are pretty simple. But they manage to create something awesome and the voice fits perfectly with everything that the band is doing. But in the end, as aforesaid, the viola is the star of this show.
In conclusion, this is a band you might not be able to stop listening to. The production is excellent,
nothing is out of place, and that arrangements are just outstanding. In short, these folks have talent.
