Modern/Alternative rock band Drown Incus recently released their debut album, Latter Days. Drown incus is yet another rock band that hails from overseas (these guys are Swiss) and know how to perform hard rock that fans will enjoy. They have a sound that is similar to some of the great modern rock bands of the day (Breaking Benjamin, Creed, A Perfect Circle), but I also hear a lot of progressive rock influences in their music (Queensyche particularly comes to mind).
Drown Incus definitely leans toward the heavier side of hard rock. Rock fans looking for something a little softer are not going to turn this on. They also aren’t the loud, rock screaming, Swedish metal that has been so popular as of late. Drown Incus is a much darker, moodier rock. All of that add up to an enjoyable debut record.
If there is one drawback to be said about the band, it would be the formulaic music and writing style. After three or four listens, a couple of the songs started to sound repetitive and stale. That’s not to say they are bad songs, they just started blending together after a few plays, which had me putting the disc down for a couple of days before revisiting.
Overall, Drown Incus’ debut album Latter Days is a fun listen and an enjoyable record. Fans of modern rock music will like the heavy style from these Swiss rockers. If you’re looking for some new music to add to your IPOD, give this a band a chance.
