Title - 'The Death of Greeley Estates'
Artist - Greeley Estates
The Death Of Greeley Estates is Greeley Estates' 6th studio album and isn’t anything like what they have done in the past. This CD goes back to the roots of the band and has more clean vocals done by the lead singer Ryan Zimmerman like their first CD (Outside Of This). At the same time it has the heavy drumming, low bass chords, and very heavy vocals.
Ryan’s words in each song are like hearing one story after another. Singing or screaming, he gets his words across. The new CD is under Tragic Hero Records, which the band had joined in 2010 after leaving Science Records.
Their song 'Friendly Neighborhood Visit' talks about the abuse that too many ladies take from their men. They’re screaming about the time to stand up, not to be pushed around. The song starts off with a very catchy rhythm and is then followed by Ryan’s heavy vocals. Then you have the song 'The Medic' that kicks things off with very fast drumming done by their drummer Chris Julian. Screaming comes after the drumming for a few seconds before Ryan starts to sing.
This new album is a mix of their first CD and their fourth and fifth. The new CD sounds like their first CD, which came out in 2004, because of the large amount of clean vocals by Ryan. It’s like Go East Young Man, Let The Evil Go West and No Rain, No Rainbows, which came out in 2008 and 2010. Due to the deep growls, heavy rifts, fast drumming, and creepy effects to give it a little Greeley feel.
The band has really stepped everything up on this new CD. The Death Of Greeley Estates is really the rebirth of Greeley’s sound.
