DEAD TO THE WORLD
Queens, NY trio Attic's Noise come barreling through the gate with its eight-track debut that shows the trio as a well versed rock band with tons of influences. Growing up in the grunge era, there's an undercurrent of Cobain-esque self-loathing, shown in the dynamic grind of "Flawless". There are also hints of melody-laden West Coast punk rock, like the contagiously chorused "For Now" and the rhythmic groove of "Migraine". They even get raw and rude, like most good punk should, on the fist pumping "Enough" and "Something Maybe Everything", a potent mix of darker hard rock a la AFI. Falling somewhere in between the new sound of mod punk and the much maligned genre of emo, sans the incessant white boy whine, Attic's Noise make its mark on the scene with a collection of tunes that show the band's drive and desire to lie atop of the new wave of punk's heap.
