Here Lies A Warning - Keep Your Head Under The WaterHere Lies A Warning - Keep Your Head Under The Water

Here Lies A Warning are a five piece progressive hardcore/metal band from Scotland, Keep your head under the water is there 1st EP release.

From the off, i can here influences of atreyu, sounding very familiar to there later stuff, the vocals are split between growls and melodic-ish singing. On the blast drumming the bass seems to be a bit too high in blasts as it fuzzs a bit, the guitar work, has some decent riffs and licks, which border on catchy, the vocals do seem to let this band down a bit, as there a bit pants to be fair. Ashore is a change of pace from the fist two tracks, with its melodic instrumental intro before bleeding into the following track, which is a different from the previous two tracks, being melodic in nature, decent singing is displayed here, and i do prefer it tot he growls, This also displays that the band have a different speed and the abilty to slow it down and create a balad of sorts, before bringing the growls back, which spoils the track to be honest, the growls could have been left out till the final track.

Abit of a mixed bag for an EP, different directions displayed, which could be a lack of direction or still experimenting with there sound.
