Concrete Kingdoms - Concrete Kingdoms EP Review

Concrete Kingdoms - Self Titled debut EP Review

Concrete Kingdoms (CK) are a five-piece Rock band hailing from Fife in Scotland consisting of Mark Hawthorne on Lead Vocals, Ben Fraser on Guitar, Mark Faulds on Guitar, Dougie Fraser on Bass and Grant Duncan on Drums. They were formed in 2014 and have such a range of influences such as Pearl Jam, Nirvana, Aerosmith, Led Zeppelin, Guns N Roses & Metallica. I really am looking forward to listening to this record!

This four track EP starts off with a song called 'Time To Play' which sets the tone for the EP with epic guitar riffs and solos, deep bass tones and introduces Mark's vocals which really are suited to rock music! Song number two is 'Die This Day' and is a very energetic song with big sounding guitars and heavy bass tones. Interesting lyrics and a range of vocal styles also feature in this song.
Track three is 'Speed Demon', featuring fast drums and guitars. The tempo of this song goes well with the name and will get you moving. Very classic rock feel to this song, I'm thinking Metallica-ish. I am loving the guitar solos! The fourth and final song is called 'Same Old Same' which starts with a distorted guitar tone and then becomes a rather funk-rock tune. Whilst you are dancing to this one, I urge you listen to the lyrics. I really like the tempo changes, they add extra depth to the song. Oh and this song has more of those awesome guitar solos!

In conclusion, this EP displays their range of influences. Concrete Kingdoms have taken a small piece from each of their influences, put them all in the blender of their combined minds and blasted out with this piece of musical Rock-Art. This band may have been playing for a number of years already but this EP will put them on the map and will attract the attention of many more fans.

The 'Concrete Kingdoms' EP will be available from all digital outlets on 17th August 2018
