LIKE ANIMALS - FERAL
Review by Nathan McLeod
Like Animals are not a bad prog rock/metal band hailing from Ontario, Canada. Their Feral CDEP is also not a bad release. The immediate feeling I received from Like Animals, was a bit of a John Frusciante-Red Hot Chili Peppers, 90's era influence. Even a bit of Dave Navarro-Jane's Addiction & Les Claypool-Primus. Like Animals have that vibe musically. Vocally, hinting on Dave Williams of Drowning Pool. (RIP)
Granted, prog rock/metal are really not my cup of tea when it comes to music, Like Animals though have an esoteric sound to them. Some great melody. For the most part, some rather easier listening. They're not boring, but nor do I find them over the top. Some heavier elements appear here & there, although there are I'd say more rock 'n' roll influences displayed.
Production is nicely done up, not a shabby job at all. If you happen to like some good prog rock/metal? You've got almost 20mins of some excellent material appearing on, Feral. You can watch/listen to their Feral video here on YouTube: https://youtu.be/87RGdI7qwhg ...
I'd really like to hear what a full-length CD release would sound like from these lads. Thanks to Jon Asher & Asher Media for the CD. Keep the great music coming.
My rating: 81 / 100
