The Concussion Theory, a southern band from Virginia, named themselves after the theory that states releasing explosives and artillery into the atmospheres will result in rainfall. With such a vivid and interesting moniker, the band does emit quite a unique and somewhat explosive sound and style. The Concussion Theory is the band’s debut release and they will soon embark on a tour to shower the east coast with their explosive and sometimes soothing alternative and punk rock inspired sounds.
The concept behind the album is based on the everyday experiences of the modern day human, and within every track The ConcussionTheory takes a stab at divulging every aspect of some of life’s mundane situations. “Anchor” kicks off the album and seems to harp about a relationship ending; "Two mortals wrapped in our mortal coil… You're so goddamn demanding stop standing in my way, anchor, you're pulling me down.” The song is very upbeat and is both pessimistic and optimistic at the same time, it is definitely a ballad to overcome the ends of a bad relationship; a great song to blast at high volume and scream at the top of your lungs.
“Oh Brother,” is another song with some serious connotations. This track seems to be about someone who is drowning in addiction and negative attractions. The lyrics tell us a descriptive story about trying to help a struggling friend, “Oh brother, how about you put that bottle down, you won't find me there at the bottom.” Another track “Beacon,” is about falling in love; “I will fall in love the way I fall asleep, slowly, then all at once.” This track has a seriously infectious melody that may be due to the rising and falling vocals.
The songs found within this album are passionate, genuine and high energy. You can’t find yourself falling asleep to any of the tracks within this album. Despite being definably rock and sometimes brash, The Concussion Theory manages to have an alluring persona that makes this album a solid listen. Sound quality is also great which makes this release a success in every aspect.
