CD Review: Egpyt Central Wants Us To Follow The "White Rabbit"
The combination of Blake Allison's drums and Jeff James' guitar on the opener "Ghost Town" sets the stage for an in-your-face, hard rocking beginning to the album. The title-song has everything you could ask for in a rock hit, sly lyrics about vulnerability with a powerful, up-tempo chorus while the band's music will make your speakers bleed. Egypt Central create an anthem for their fans with "Kick Ass", a song you can't help but shout the lyrics. They lighten their hard rock assault with "Change" aiming for a more radio-friendly sound. The band create a mini rock opera beginning with the up-tempo melody of "The Drug (Part 1)" and continuing with the slower, but darker lyrics of "Enemy Inside (Part 2)". The album finishes with the battle-cry of "Surrender" and the acoustic ballad "Backfire".
Egypt Central will be blazing a trail across the U.S. this summer with tour dates booked until mid-August. Check out the band's website, egyptcentral.net, for a complete list of tour dates as well as more information on the new album. Also be on the look-out for a new video for the band's single "White Rabbit".
