I remember making recordings back fifteen years ago when my friends and I would jam out in my mom's basement. We’d take a tape player, press record and listen to the results. That's what I felt like I was listening to when I hit play Four Walls by The 460.
The songs are very basic guitar rock containing mostly distorted power chords, drums and maybe a bass. There is some singing but it’s barely audible. Seriously, I wouldn’t have even have noticed that any one was singing if it weren’t for the lyrics on Bandcamp.
The EP starts with “Come With Me” which contains some decent riffs but is held back by the sub-par recording quality. Apparently, the vocalist sings on this song, which I wasn’t even aware of. He sings, “come with me ill take you awayyyy / I need you to stayyy / don’t leave me alone when will you come home.”
The next song “Angels Of Death” is a loud, ruckus song. I honestly couldn't hear a single word on this track even though there are lyrics on the Bandcamp page. At least I heard someone singing on the next track “Heart and Soul.” The EP ends with “Julie (Run Run Run),” which is another song where all I heard was guitar and drums .That being said it felt like a highlight.
Everyone has to start somewhere and The 460 still has a lot of work ahead of them. I enjoyed the punk vibe in which these songs were delivered but the band will have to up the ante on the recording quality at some point if they hope to garner some attention, the most important aspect being able to hear the vocals. I couldn’t say whether I like the vocals or not because I had no way to judge.
