I'll Be Waiting

     
         
         
         
             
             
Neverstar are a hard rock band from the UK formed in 2009 and releasing their debut E.P. in 2011 with their first full length album in 2013.    
             
The atmospheric intro builds quickly into a crescendo as 'Lose Control' crashes in like a bulldozer on a building site. The powerful riffing and drumming accompanied by the near symphonic vocals keep 'Lose Control' stomping and romping along. Comparisons could be made with the likes of Evanescence, however, Neverstar are a bit more raw and most definitely a bit more traditional, British hard rock. 'Don't Call' slows the tempo slightly, yet retains pounding rhythms and has a catchy chorus that will have their legions of fans singing along to.    
             
Some superb guitar riffing mixed with excellent vocal melodies best sums up 'Break Me Apart' and is most definitely a "head nodder" of top quality. 'Not Over Yet' has passionate, soaring vocals, a heavy chug and is an attitude laden stomp. 'Drown The Shadows' is guitar driven, mid tempo hard rock with 'City Of Sin' increasing the tempo with yet another superb soaring, symphonic style vocal performance.    
             
Two of the rockiest songs off the album are 'A New Dawn' and 'Now Or Never'. They both pound and pummel the senses with energetic guitars, thunderous drums and powerful vocals. 'The Edge' maintains the energy from these songs, however has a lighter rock feel to it. 'Dry Your Tears' is the nearest this album gets to a ballad, although the guitars remain too heavy for it to be a lighters in the air moment. Ending the album is the hard rocking, high energy, high tempo title song 'I'll Be Waiting' with another soaring, faultless vocal performance.    
             
Overall, pounding hard rock with soaring, symphonic style vocals and some sparkling guitars to produce a very good, traditional sounding British hard rock album.
