|| An interesting mix of metal, hard rock
and electronica make Sparrows
Point what they are today. The band has been compared to bands
like Alice Cooper, Kiss, Slipknot and Tool. As I was listening to
the CD something made them sound like a weaker version of Marilyn
Manson and Powerman 5000 combination. Some riffs are good and catchy
but others seem almost childish, but more playful then anything.
I don't know how much playfulness in metal is good, but the way
Sparrows Point uses the tactic, the less serious I took the CD.
This isn't a bad CD, its more of a CD on the line or near the line
of being pleasing. The band did pump out a couple songs that I deem
listen able and they include "Hungry" and "Brother."
The overall sound of this act, doesn't quite meet the signed band
category, but with a little more work they might be able to turn
their twelve songs into something that the majority of people would
like to listen too.
