FAYNE – The Queen Of Kings e.p. (CD)
There is no doubt in my mind that Canada’s Fayne is a solid band, musically they’re very tight and heavy enough to make you crowd surf at one of their gigs. Their guitars, bass rhythms and drumming is pretty interesting since they incorporate unique tempo changes and keep the flow of their music at a constant, which in other words is interesting and does not drag and bore your to death. My only complaints here are the vocals, the switching between the clean crooning, which becomes very annoying to listen too, and the rough vocals are okay, nothing to write home about either.
Fayne is musically very talented as can be heard on their debut e.p., and I feel they should ditch the vocals and focus their talents on instrumental metal/rock and move away from the nu-metal stigma with the hardcore, metallic vocals.
Some of the bands that come to mind listening to Fayne, are: As I Lay Dying, The Tony Danza Tap Dance Extravaganza, Threat Signal and Misery Signals. Some of these influences are very cool, but unfortunately, this style of music is not my cup of coffee, as it does nothing for me. [Self-Released] Sarjoo Devani
