Heavy Harmonies Review
From: Dan Date: March 17, 2003 at 0:22
I wanted to hate this album. Really, I did. Normally I absolutely despise grunge, but this album isn't your typical grunge album. It incorporates many of the "hooks" that we love about melodic rock. I've got it! It's an album with an identity crisis! Seriously though, this effort has a solid basis both in the "Seattle Sound" of the mid-90s, as well as strong melodic elements. It's definitely a unique sound. This sophomore effort from the band is very polished and extremely tight, much moreso than one might expect. Great attention was paid to the production/mix of this album, and it pays great dividends.

Keyboards are everpresent, and the lead vocalist has a very strong, confident voice. Just when you think a song might be getting mired in some raw alternarock, a burst of melody makes you do an aural double-take. It's definitely an interesting listen. Of note is the guest appearance of Ann Wilson (Heart) doing duet vocals on Cold Tears. The song lineup is predominantly rockers, with the obligatory ballad or two throne in. In fact, I especially like the ballad Spinning, a powerful standout! The instrumental Deff Bendir adds an innovative "progressive" edge to the album. If you like a modern sound, yet do not want to foresake powerful vocals or strong harmonies, this will be the perfect album for you! Great job, guys!

Rating: 84/100

Treason are some new guys out of the USA and have just signed a deal to have this album more widely distributed. Which is a good thing, as this album rocks big time! This is modern aggressive hard rock at it's best, with touches of Alice In Chains, The Cult, Stone Temple Pilots and even Metallica all mixed to perfection. This album is a must get for any fans of the bands mentioned and fans of modern melodic metal with attitude!

From: Hrudet Date: April 17, 2004 at 22:47
Treason demonstrate that they are a band of substance, where emotion and melody meet at the crossroads of past and present. An album much more likely to appeal after repeated listenings rather than the first time airing mean that this is more than superficial music. Well worth a listen, and well worth keeping an eye on too. Treason could easily prove to be a real surprise just as much as they could betray and fade into oblivion.
