A self-described trio of non-virgins from Minneapolis got together one day and created the band TRITA. Their goal was to create music that they would want to listen to, and that’s exactly what the album TRITA is all about. This group of talented musicians specialize in playing rock, metal or progressive rock type of music. They’ve put together this album as a teaser of their style as they tour around and spread their name throughout the USA.
The self-titled album TRITA starts out with the track “Euphoria.” The song starts out with an excellent and long drum solo. It is an amazing and great introduction to the album. It highlights the raw and badass talent of TRITA’s drummer. It’s fun, and really sets of the tone on a positive note. Unfortunately, the rest of the track does not live up to the hype. While the deep and heavy bass solo midway through the song does mirror the badass drum intro, the rest of the song falls a bit flat. The instruments are somewhat drowned out and the lyrics seem to be stuck in some sort of no-man’s-land middle ground. The song sounds like progressive rock, somewhat spacey but also metal-ly, but does not seem to have a clear and powerful identity.
The next track “The Ear” also starts out with an amazing, badass and unique drum solo. It sets a powerful tone right away. The heavy metal guitar riff that joins in soon after is also pretty badass, but somewhat cliche. Perhaps metalheads, or maybe more so heavy rock folks, will really like this track but it seems to be missing that unique factor to make it stand out. It could use a touch of creativity from the guitar or lyrics. There is a fun bass solo midway through, but all the creativity is drowned out with the more repetitive type of riffs and melody of the song.
The song “Rocks and Stones” is not introduced by those badass drums, unfortunately because the drummer is awesome and extremely talented. A guitar riff introduces this track. It has an excellent distortion though and has a very cool unique sound to it. The drums kick in soon after with a really interesting beat. This band clearly has very talented musicians. The vocals in this track are more calm, spacey, and I think this style of singing actually fits in with the other instruments much better. As a whole, the cohesion, style and sound of this track is the best of all three.
TRITA has some very talented musicians, but it seems they are still working on nailing down their specific and solid identity. The last track of TRITA does have a cohesive and unique sound that makes these guys stand out. They are talented musicians and clearly passionate about what they do.
