Terezodu new four song ep is all kinds of thrashy, scream-o,
bass driven goodness. The self titled ep from the Orange County
band kicks off with "The Truth," a song that showcases lead
vocalist Leo Ulfelder's dynamic vocal range and offers some
pretty quirky lyrics, ("I want to see your hands turn red")
which in general I happen to love. Ulfelder's vocals (he also
plays bass) are highly stylized, the sort of dark temper tantrum
sound that had me making early Murder City Devils and Rudi-Peni
connections. The second song, "The Life" stood out as having an
almost 80's metal sound, due in large part to Eddie Olopeza's
shrieking guitar coupled with Alex Shultz's energetic drumming.
"The Lie" reads and listens as social critism of suburban
values, definitely evokes a sense of rebellion against the
commonplace superficiality with lines like: "It's not the
painting just the colors I used to paint it that grabbed you by
the throat." The final track and my favorite, "The Death"
starts off with a heavy bass intro, which again compliments
Ulfelder's vocals very well: think "1/4 dead" by RP. If you're
into dark wave punk, metal, and hardcore, or just hyper
energetic music in general, definitely check this band out.
