CD Review: Close Your Eyes Cross The "Line" With New Album

Hardcore metal band Close Your Eyes will be releasing their new album "Line In The Sand" at the end of the month. Since their Victory Records debut back in 2010, their fan base continues to grow with each tour. Their latest string of live dates will end on in their hometown of Abiline, TX in November.
This is the first album not to feature founding member Shane Raymond on vocals, but the band did a tremendous job filling the spot with the throat-bleeding screams of Sam Ryder Robinson. The songs "Days of Youth" and "Frame And Glass" have mainstream metal potential, while still keeping that edginess that makes their music stand-out. The adrenaline is pumping full-speed in "Sleeping Giant" and "No Borders" as you can just imagine a huge mosh pit listening to these songs. One of the album's highlights is "The End" with its contagious chorus and high powered musicianship. The album closes with the big sweeping sound of the 80-second song, "Follow The Sun."
