Ever heard of Dark New Day? This is their amazing frontman Brett Hestla's OTHER band's album that allows him to show his immense talent to a greater extent. The fact that most people have only seen "Signs of a Vacant Soul" in a cut-out bin at the turn of the century is a crying shame. I think that Virgos Merlot is the most mismanaged band in the history of time. Some of the tragic events in this band's history include three band name changes, fraud, lawsuits, an ill-fated attempt to reform minus Hestla, not to mention a tragic drug overdose. Despite all this, the music contained here is groundbreaking modern rock featuring a melodic three guitar attack with goth and electronic undertones. Intrigued yet? Unfortunately, Virgos Merlot were written off early as just another major label artist that got thrown on the wall and didn't stick, but there is much more here than meets the eye.
