We are here talking about a German band which evolved to a true insiders’
tip within the underground scene since their foundation two years ago. In dozens
of concerts from Munich to Berlin Atticus Finch played their fingers to the
bone just to give everything during each gig and to provide a show that pulls
the stick out of anyone’s ass. An explosive mixture of melody and aggression.
Atticus Finch do not at all rely on any coincidence to increase their degree
of popularity nationwide. The CD “DEMOlition” that was created from
ashes of several previous projects at first formed the band’s musical basis.
“Redesign your Mind”, the EP, which was published in 2006, as well
as the according tour are already things of the past. In September 2007 the
fog will be lifted, when the 4 guys from Heidelberg will present an album that
proves where they want to go – they want to go professional – without
any detours. The new material is locked and loaded and to be unleashed towards
mankind – prepare for Atticus Finch, as there will be no escaping this
band in the future.
To be exact, the new CD “Wide Awake” will be released on September
28th. This album is for the alternativa and hardrock fans of you. Some of the
riffs are quite hard and remind of Korn or even Metallica. The singer has a
great voice, and makes the songs quite interesting with the shoutings he adds.
The melody of the song “Wide awake” get’s stuck in your head easily,
while most of the other songs are much harder, with faster riffs, and more shouting.
“Lay me down” begins quite slow, but their hard style remains which
keeps this song from being the typical slow piece which every album contains.
This bands sounds like they have a big future and their music has the potential
to rock bigger venues. “Wide Awake” is great for the start into the
grey autumn. Rock on!
