Quiet! I’m Hunting! has an EP called The Fall, The Rise. Both the band’s name and the album’s title are enough to capture your interest. That is, until you play the album. Most bands make the most out of having an EP by trying to fill it with as much as possible. The first track, “Finisher,” is a one-minute intro, with very little build-up or anything to get the heart racing. The screams and vocals lack depth. The guitars fall flat. The drums, however, are crisp, on point and enough to round out the sound. The members are still finding their true selves, and with Southern influences, it really shows. This album will not get your heart pounding, and there will not be many fan favorites on the album, but if the group can expand on its vocal range and depth, with another guitar, maybe they have something there.

I’m glad I made these songs, no matter how personal they are."Full Feature More from Drones
