Punk-metal is making some noise in the music biz. Not the noise that hurts your ears, but the harmonized screams of what I believe could be one of the best bands ever. I know that’s a pretty bold statement but once you listen to this talented group of guys from Orange County California, it’s hard not to enjoy what these guys have to offer. Part one of a two-CD, four-volume collection, Fire and Water shows the harder and softer side of this somewhat eclectic band. Lead singer Dustin Kensrue has mastered the art of vocal range and spills it out one remarkable CD after another. I’m excited to hear Volume 3 & 4 (Earth and Air), but we’ll have to wait some time for that release.
