Evergreen Terrace, Sencirity is an Easy Disguise in...

It’s been a few albums since Evergreen Terrace released some original music. And while I’m not their number one fan, I definitely think it was worth the wait. There is plenty of melody, screams, and heaviness in the album that I was genuinely surprised and excited.

Both vocalists seem to have matured in both their sound and delivery. There have been many dual vocalists that seemed to contradict each other in terms of their own voices, but these two guys really compliment each other.

Wake up and choke

The opening track on the album doesn’t so much as prepare for the rest of the album as much as it smacks you up side the head with the very shovel the band used to dig your grave. It starts out with a few second of acoustic guitar that I initially was wary of, but then… all hell broke loose – double bass, and huge mosh. It was quite a wake up call. The track didn’t just stick to a formulaic breakdown, but includes some great chorus and melody and definitely made me very excited for the rest of the album.

“Brave Reality� continues the heaviness with some smoothly sung vocals through the chorus. I can’t help but really get into this track. It has the same great rock tinge to it that the entire album has, but there’s just something about it that separates it from the rest of the songs.

Overall, I’d say that this album far exceeded my expectations. There are some really great tracks on what is a decently produced album. It is reminiscent of their previously released work and doesn’t really see a whole lot of progression from those, but it’s still a very listenable and enjoyable album.
