Review: Crawl back in || Epicenter Festival

You recognise this face don’t you? It’s good old Chester Bennington from Linkin Park, and the long-awaited first single from his side project, Dead By Sunrise, has finally been dropped. It’s a good effort too.

The inevitable, lazy comparisons are going to be made with his Linkin Park material, but this definitely has a different sound to it. There are of course some similarities, but given that Chester’s the lead vocalist for both groups, of course there’s going to be some crossover.
However, that’s not necessarily a bad thing at all. Chester’s vocals are awesome in Linkin Park, and similarly so here. This is however, as I said, a different style of rock music. It’s difficult to place who it is they sound like. The closest I can come is maybe Three Days Grace or a less depressing Finger Eleven. It’s a great track though, and definitely one of the better songs I’ve heard from the rock side of things in a while.

Taken from Chester-land, thanks!

Epicenter festival was yesterday, screencaps were taken. Will upload them later, just too damn tired right now. I'm sorry!
