CD REVIEW: ONE, Ep by Shallow Side

ONE, Ep by Shallow Side
(Thermal Entertainment)

Alabama rockers, Shallow Side are back with their latest recording,  The six song Ep, 'One' and it sounds fantastic!  It's well produced and the songs have a punch to them. What you get a nice mix of heavy foot stompers and melodic infused rockers.  Eric Boatright on vocals, Cody Hampton on bass and guitar, Seth Trimble on guitar and keyboard and on drums, Heath Fields. For those new to the band, their vibe is like mix of Three Day Grace meets Black Stone Cherry. There are only six songs but all are solid. After listening to the first ten seconds of listening to the lead off track, "We Roll" ,you know that this is band that is serious about making your listening experience is a memorable one. The next two tracks solidify that statement with "Rebel" and a solid and impressive take on the Styx classic, "Renegade". so good that even impressed the man that penned it, Tommy Shaw.  “I’m impressed by these guys.  Good arrangement, good performance, good video,”. The Ep finishes off string with, "Fight Or Flight", "Can You Hear Me" and "Start A Fire".  There are only six songs, but all are solid. Great riffs and importantly some great melodies and they rock. Shallow Side's musical style may not be anything out of the ordinary but what they do do they do very well and overall 'One' is good enough to stand out amongst the many others in modern rock genre. 
Highly Recommended
