CD REVIEW: Noise Therapy

Noise Therapy
Tension
Virgin Records



Rundown: Noise Therapy reunited last year to record Tension, a powerful new release from this Vancouver-based quintet. With a roster of stunning, edgy tracks, Noise Therapy have proven they have a firm grip on the ever-shifting borders of the rock world.

Key Tracks: "G-Hole" stands out as the first track on the album to adequately showcase Dave Ottoson's raw, emotionally-charged vocal stylings. The more up-tempo "Ride" teeters on the edge of mediocrity, but Noise Therapy raises the bar again with "Far Away," a heavy track about the limits of uncertainty.

Sounds Like: Obvious comparisons rise between Noise Therapy and bands like Linkin Park and Alien Ant Farm, but these guys are more than just an amalgamation of various nu-metal sounds. Noise Therapy manages to successfully incorporate their own feelings and experiences into the music, producing a sound that is both real and their own.
