I´m glad to see that several things has improved since Revengine´s debut EP "The Absence" from 2011, I wasn´t too impressed by their songwriting and thought singer Antti Jokiranta´s vocal performance felt a bit weak.
But the songs are stronger on their new album "Why follow road so narrow" and Antti sings a lot better on these songs, they have worked harder on the melodies and I welcome that the songs are shorter this time around.
I think the band has created a cool mix of grunge and alternative metal, we even get a touch of melancholy, the typical Finnish sound.
Once again, a crystalclear bass sound which is the best part here.
