Brighter Than a Thousand Suns – “Rebirth”
Brighter Than a Thousand Suns pull zero punches on their latest EP Rebirth; each blow landing with more and more force on each passing track. Angelika Roswell emphatically sets the album’s tone on opener “One Sided Soul,” a heavy, yet atmospheric banger that immediately thrusts her vocal dexterity into the spotlight. Roswell continues to flex her vocal muscle on the following “Warcry (Reborn),” transitioning from gravelly barks to clean, lofty stanzas with pure ease, as Randy Roswell provides her with a potent bed of churning riffs. “There Will Be Blood” marks one of the best tracks BTATS has ever put to wax thanks to truly memorable hooks and Rebirth comes full circle on the closing “What’s Gone Is Gone,” which benefits from not only Randy’s forceful six-string barrage, but also some well-placed synth touches. Picking up where they left off on The Way Out, Brighter Than a Thousand Suns continue to prove they are one of the best bands in the underground today and one of the best bands you’re not listening to right now. So what the hell are you waiting for? Rebirth is as good a jumping off point as you’ll find.
