Steady, Steady... BOOM! - 4/5
Metal band MisterRogers - emerging from the Rancho Cucamonga/San Bernardino area have perfected the art of eluding the listener into a false sense of security, with the rather heroic intro before the John Bonham styled drumming before exploding into the Metal/MetalCore style with thanks to Tyler Dye on drums who is the mastermind behind the explosion, allowing everyone else to seamlessly join in. Vocalist Byron Mead gives an excellent vocal delivery from the screams to the low throaty grows before the Killswitch Engage influence of clean vocals for the chorus come in. The breakdown itself is the standard mediocre breakdown you would hear in most metal bands of today, but the lyrics of "If actions speak louder than words/ Then why are my actions unheard?" stand out, amplifying the anger generated from this song. Andre Blair and Matt Arocha (guitarists) are extremely tight, giving the song the heaviness it deserves, although my only criticism is that they have 'Pulled a Metallica', as I can hardly hear the bass playing. Overall, I feel this is a fine single, and hope to hear any material from this band in the future.
