South Bay San Jose band Vacant Churches does not fall far from the
target in "As I Fall From Grace".
Vacant Churches came
marching into my apartment, threw out what ever I was listening to
and gave me a lesson in some absolutely amazing old school
hardcore influenced punk. With a really nice sample and a beat
pumping intro, the band sets high expectations on what's to come.
"And I tell you, they
didn't let me down not even for three seconds; the band blasts out
six tracks with eerie melodies, catchy beats and totally furious
energy. They create a special feeling all around you and when you
finally realize that the record is over, you just want to play it
again and again and again...
"The songs are so
solid and lyric wise the band has come up with some really
innovative songs. Melody's vocals are a perfect match with the
music, it's powerful and passionate, and it keeps you nailed in
place throughout every track.
"This is the bands debut record, and with this in mind I can only
imagine what is about to emerge from the band members minds in the
future. I can't come up with any more superlatives to describe
this excellent band right now; you'll just have to go buy the
record and listen for yourself."
