Staten Island based Four Nights Gone formed in 2010, with one purpose in mind, to take the rock world by storm. With the recent release of their debut EP, it appears a storm is brewing. The quartet cites such bands as Breaking Benjamin, and Chevelle as their biggest influences; my ears agree and then some…
This five song offering is a musical melting pot, a tympanic twist of Breaking Benjamin-meets-Five Finger Death Punch sprinkled with a healthy dose of Maidenesque guitar wizardry. Highlights include the title track, “Crash & Burn”, and the lyrically brilliant single “My Last Call” . I would, however, be the shittiest, deafest music critic ever if I didn’t single out the album’s shining star, “The Message”. “The Message” is the complete package that sets your mental music player to repeat, a radio friendly rocketship poised to shoot this foursome straight to stardom; but even more importantly, it’s the reason I’m about to deliver you this message… Click here, buy the album, and show these guys some fucking love!
