Texan post-hardcore band Close Your Eyes have released a new song, entitled 'The End'. The song is the first released with new vocalist Sam Ryder Robinson after the departure of much loved founding vocalist Shane Raymond.
Listen here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Urgc_LJZSUM
The vocals sound good. I think the lyrics are a little off rhythmically.
Wasn't crazy about this. Glad they decided to use those deep backing vocals again though.
Just realized the new singers english. They've really dropped all metal elements which isnt necessarily a bad thing
Yeah, it still sounds somewhat the same to me. His singing just isn't as powerful as Raymonds was though.
Wasn't too crazy about this song. Singer seems good though. Will check out the album. Hoping for a bit more melodic songs.
I actually really like this
Digging: Waxahatchee - American Weekend
I fell in love with these guys after listening to Empty Hands and Heavy Hearts, the vocals were just so great and the songs were just so catchy. While this songs is still good, the vocals are going to take some time to get used to.
I didn't like this much at all, first time hearing this band though
Digging: Weatherbox - American Art
listening to their older stuff
they had SO MUCH potential with their old vocalist
I'll take your word for it and check them out, but this song posted above was pretty bad. I honestly hated the vocals
here ya go dude: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oJEFRMEEvm8
from their first album. their second is even better.
check this song out as well: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tp1LtjVy4-k
from their second album
I for one feel like their best release is their EP.
Here's a track off it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=brxIJg9cpBE
No fancy video but awesome fucking song
About the new vocalist, i really disliked his input on this song and i'd say Close Your Eyes without Shane will hardly ever feel as good
Better check out the new album Growing Up Is Killing Me from band Veara, okay guys?
Their older stuff is pretty good, this will have to grow on me, I dig the new singer though.
Why did Shane leave the band?
Digging: City Of Ifa - Self Titled
"Why did Shane leave the band?"
His voice was physically incapable of performing on a touring level and I guess he was seriously damaging his vocals. I was surprised to hear that because I saw them a few times and he was great. This band really will never reach anything great without him though. He made them who they were.
Really? Oh damn, that's a shame to hear man, dude had an incredible voice indeed. The new guy isn't amazing or anything and I doubt they'll ever top their work with Shane, but I think he's pretty decent. Curious to see what else they've been working on.
I feel like I'm the only person who thought Shane was holding the band back. His vocals were just irritating to me. He sounded like someone who didn't actually have a good vocal range trying to have a good vocal range. Not sure if that makes any sense.
I like how the lyrics are made up of letters from band logos lol
Anyways, I don't mind the new vocalist. Probably because I haven't listened to these guys enough to
grow super attached to the old one, though I do prefer him.
