Review by: Justyn Brodsky & Sarah Lewis
If you’re familiar with bands from Vans Warped Tour, The All Stars Tour, The Summer Slaughter Tour; and labels like Fearless, Tragic Hero, Razor and Tie, Rise, and those alike, will absolutely fall head over heals for A Life All My Own.
If any reps from any of the tours or labels mentioned above read this (we’ll throw in Alternative Press too), here’s your next band that should be on your “must sign now” list.
This Melodic Metalcore act comes with all the perfect ingredients that makes their genre as popular as it is today. And can easily become your next favorite band of this genre. First track on their Soundcloud, “Adamantium” is a perfect demonstration of not only the band, but the genre as well, if unfamiliar with it.
It has those beautifully energetic guitar breakdowns with dynamic rhythm arrangements that allows this opening chorus to let the vocalist shine with brilliant lyrical content and the perfect melody to entice you immediately into the rest of the song.
The screams are right where they need to be, and is never outdone. The production quality couldn’t be better, and you can hear the individual members’ craft and display of talent that’s brought to the ALAMO table. Trust me when I say it seems like Emo/Screamo/Metalcore is being pursued by bands just trying to be trendy and fit in. This is not the case with ALAMO. You can hear a diversifying aura with this band, and has success written all over them.
Diversifying their beautifully dark sound with a beautiful piano/vocal intro in their track “The Killer Inside (You Better Run)” also showcases the broad range of different influences ALAMO has with their songwriting. Making sure that if they tackle this genre, they’re doing it with their own signature sound. They display an iconic blend of all your favorite bands of their genre. And one thing that constantly comes to mind while listening to these tracks is how ridiculously intense their live show has to be. No band can write these tracks, record them flawlessly, and have a bad live show. So if you get tickets to see this band play, prepare for an epic live show experience. And don’t be surprised if this band is on the next Warped Tour lineup. They have our vote!
A Life All My Own definitely have a gift, talent, and sound all their own!
