Avid Society is a rock band hailing from Australia that has been jamming together for years, and it’s evident in their chemistry and smooth sound. The band recently decided to record, mix and master their original compositions into what is now known as the Fear the Sane EP. This album displays the band’s genuine sound and attitude, and is a fun listen fit for any rock n’ roll fan out there.
The EP opens up with the track “Maybes” which serves as a perfect introduction to what this band and their sound is all about. The song and album opens up with fast, loud drums that’ll wake you right up. The drums are quickly accompanied by an equally as loud rock n’ roll sounding guitar that lets you know immediately what this album is going to be all about. This introduction hides no attitude; it’s in your face and likely designed that way so us listeners know immediately what kind of EP this going to be.
The sound is very clean, and all together you can tell there was excellent recording and mastering done here. The guitars in this album are fun, the rhythm is fast but very melodic. The guitars do an excellent job of carrying the listeners through the song and making this album fun. The vocals are not the main attraction. They are a nice complement but the distorted guitars and loud drums bring in most of the attitude and character to this album.
The song “Fruit Trees” starts out with a legendary rock n’ roll introduction. All we hear in the beginning of the track is the reverb from the electric guitar, and before we know it the rest of the band joins in with a loud but melodic sound. This track really displays the guitarists’ range and genuine talent. The riffs are fast paced and unique, and also carry a metal/rock n’ roll feeling to them. The singer has a more unique and entertaining voice in “Fruit Trees” as well. This is a fun rock n’ roll ballad; the bridge has a bone chilling guitar solo that adds a unique touch to the track.
The rhythm and ballads in this album are bound to make you move and bang your head. This album has a fun alt-rock feel to it all along. The introduction to the track “My Only Friend,” for example, is the epitome of loud alt-rock sounds. The vocals could use some work throughout, but they are not supposed to be the highlight of the album. The guitars are immaculate, throwing down clean transitions and unique riffs that make this a very fun album. If you need a quick pick-me-up and want to listen to some loud, shredding rock guitars then take a listen through the Fear the Sane EP.
