New heavy metal band Love & Death just released their debut album, "Between Here & Lost" on Tooth & Nail Records. The band is led by former Korn guitarist Brian "Head" Welch and the album was produced by Jasen Rauch (Breaking Benjamin, RED). As the album title suggests, the songs deal with tragedy and triumph, darkness and light, evil and good.
The album starts off hard and heavy with "The Abandoning." As the lyrics deal with self-demons, the music is aggressive and pounding. The music takes on a more industrial hard rock feel with a cover of Devo's "Whip It," before the big, buzzing guitars and addicting chorus of "Watching The Bottom Fall." The music of "Meltdown" and "My Disaster" brings you back to the Nu Metal sound of the nineties with a great shout-along chorus. The album finishes up with the big sounds of "Paralyzed" and "Chemicals," before closing with the mellow, floating beginning music of "Bruises," which builds-up to crashing chorus.
Love & Death just headed out on their "War Of Change Tour," which runs until mid-March. For more information on the new album, "Between Here & Lost" and for a complete list of tour dates, check out loveanddeathmusic.com.
