Texas in July

For Lancaster, Pennsylvania’s metal wunderkinds TEXAS IN JULY, the cliché that age is nothing but a number isstrikinglyapropos. Armedwith prodigious talent and songwriting ability that belie the fact that the band’s members rangein age from 15to 17, TEXAS are poised tomake waves with the release of their debut, digital-only EP, Salt of The Earth.

For Lancaster, Pennsylvania’s metal wunderkinds TEXAS IN JULY, the cliché that age is nothing but a number isstrikinglyapropos. Armedwith prodigious talent and songwriting ability that belie the fact that the band’s members rangein age from 15to 17, TEXAS are poised tomake waves with the release of their debut, digital-only EP, Salt of The Earth.

With less talent, a similar group’s ages might make them a novelty – the metal version of HANSON – but TEXAS deliverwithmore musicalchops than most people twice their age. No one overhears, “These kids are good for their age” at aTEXAS INJULY show. “These kids aregood” always suffices.

Produced and engineered by Carson Slovak of CENTURY (Prosthetic Records), Salt Of The Earth is a full-speed, head-oncollision into anabsolute wall of sound. The technical, riffing guitars are propelled forward by thunderous, boomingdrumsounds to create a sonic explosion.

“The recording of Salt Of The Earth was a process that was even better than we could have imagined,” explainsguitaristLogan Maurerexcitedly, “Carson’s talents as an engineer and producer are exceptional and he truly helped fulfillthe vision wehad for these songs. It wasmindblowing to hear the final result – to hear something we crafted, to hear ourindividual artisticexpression take form and become areality..

In addition to being a major draw as a headliner in their hometown (routinely packing Lancaster’s 850+ capacity venueTheChameleonClub), TEXAS have shared the stage with an impressive number of heavy hitters in the metal musicscene, such asEVERY TIME I DIE,THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA, AUGUST BURNS RED, MAYLENE AND THE SONS OFDISASTER, THE BLED andmore.

It’s all just part of TEXAS’ recipe for success – Perform. Turn Heads. Repeat.

From the opening riff of lead track “Hook, Line and Sinner,” it’s clear that TEXAS IN JULY mean business on Salt of theEarth.Over fivetracks, the fierce, churning guitars of Maurer and Christian Royer tug at the backbone that drummerAdam Gray andbasist Ben Witkowskilay down, while the guttural vocals of Alex Good propel the songs forward.

Unlike many bands’ debuts (metal bands in particular), Salt of the Earth isn’t the type of record whose mention willmake itsmembers cringefive years down the road. It’s a strong debut by a band for whom the title “force to be reckonedwith” islooming just on the horizon. As strongas the album is, however, it’s safe to say that for TEXAS IN JULY, the bestis yet tocome. « hide
