Bedfordshire seems to be hiding a factory churning out up and coming rock bands, with In Remission the latest one to hit the radar. Their second release, entitled ‘The Great & Shallow’ showcases six tracks from the band. In Remission take influence from bands such as Underoath, A Day To Remember and Lostprophets, all of which play a small part in how the band sound at present.
Opening track ‘Fractions’ is one of the band’s heavier tracks and opens with fast paced lively beats, rhythmic fast paced finger movements producing shredding riffs which is accompanied by a heavy intense breakdown. Despite this, the guitars are not so overpowering and you can really appreciate the vocals of Daniel Lillie. The EP could easily have just consisted of this song and fans would still be happy.
‘Discipline’ is the track that’s most likely to get stuck in your head, which is nothing to complain about. This melodic rock track blends head banging riffs with catchy vocals, very reminiscent of Lostprophets and early Finch. A killer combination.
The intro to ‘Floodlights’ is one to be proud of, the guitar work is impeccable: pounding, heavy and chugging. Showing that despite this EP’s heights, there’s still even more the band have to offer. The track proves the band aren’t one to stick to just one genre, blending heavier instruments (shown off by the breakdown featured near the end) with such melody and calming nature in Dan‘s voice.
As ‘The Great & Shallow’ draws to a close, it’s EP closer ‘Solstice’ that truly steals the show, with the passion and emotion to make a musically great song tip over the edge. The longer than average introduction allows the whole band to showcase their talents with a flawless sound created. This blends into creating the only ‘ballad’ on the album.
In Remission have found the style that suits them and have perfected and sharpened this to produce an EP of epic proportions. Bands like this one are the future of the British rock scene, and if they create more tracks like these then it might happen quicker than they might expect.
