10 years since their last release, City X is back with their 5th studio album! 11 tracks of pure rock and roll, the album begins with drums in your face as if the band kicked the door down after being locked away for a decade. The band really tried to honor their roots with this one. Even the cover art is a throwback to their debut album.
“We try not to overwhelm the listener, but rather give them an open space to interpret the music in their own way lyrically, something I believe isn’t a common practice in this area. Everyone’s trying to create the most intricate and complex pieces that, for me at least, is hard to listen to sometimes. Don’t get me wrong, there’s incredibly talented guys out there, but we don’t feel the need to show off at full throttle 100% of the time. That’s just not our style. That being said, we really tried to make each song as memorable as the last, and I think we did a good job in that department. We definitely tried to innovate in a few areas, layering and even bending the rules somewhat. Speaking in reality for a second, take Roll the Dice for example. Not only does the song feature 3 guitars at the finale, but uses 2 separate data strings to create a song that’s longer than the allotted 5 minutes. Just a simple edit in any DAW and you can do some pretty cool things.”
