CrimsonFaced Album Review

Band Name: CrimsonFaced

Album Title: Binge

Band Members and Positions: Michael Trapp – All Vocals and Instruments, and Paul Kurzweil – MixMaster and Psychologist

Genre: Rock

Record Label: Independent

Difficulty of Music: The main difficulty here is Mike’s work with all the instruments and sounds you are hearing in each song. The music is put together well and creatively broken up. Michael is very talented, bringing a new and innovative form of modern rock.

Comparisons to Other Artists: Imagine – what if Nine Inch Nails, Metallica, King Crimson, Ozzy, Sabbath, Nirvana, The Beatles, Zeppelin, Van Halen, Pink Floyd, Steve Vai and Frank Zappa were all thrown in a blender with some Tequila and strawberries. That just BEGINS to tell the story… Hold on to your hats… cause the rollercoaster is going off the tracks……

Lyrical Significance: Micheal Trapp’s curious twist of the English language seems to get across his thought provoking lyrics in a way that gives the words even more of an impact, and will actually make people listen to the words more. They seem to gel perfectly with the rhythmic musical processions behind them, and the poetic integrity of the lyrics is enhanced.

Overall Rating (out of 10) : 8

Analysis: CrimsonFaced will be big sooner than they know it. Their almost haunting harmonious feel can be equated to slipping off the top of a hot air balloon at 20,000 ft into a free fall. They will certainly keep you intrigued, keep you listening, and will NOT disappoint.
