The Detroit-based band has come a long way and is ready to show the world what theyâ€™ve got to offer with the release of their LP â€œState of Mindâ€ on August 12th. This highly anticipated debut studio LP is not only something that fans have been waiting for, but something that will set a new platform for the band.
Citizen Zero keeps their modern rock/grunge sound throughout â€œState of Mindâ€. Not only does it keep with the classic rock sound that the band is known for, but it changes the sound even throughout songs themselves. Of course the heavy guitar is most of the songs makes for great head banging, as well as the solos making you rock out even more. The guitar solo right before the bridge in â€œWhen the Rain Comesâ€ shreds hard and gives the song a powerful sound that shines through the LP. Itâ€™s not just the instrumentals that give this LP a solid sound, but the raspy, classic rock n roll vocals just bring the entire sound full circle. In â€œBanginâ€™ In The Nailsâ€, the vocals shine while the instrumentals take a back seat to create a softer sound then most of the other songs, but donâ€™t worry the guitar solo in this song is sick too.
The LP in itself sounds complete, from start to finish it just tells a story and doesnâ€™t leave you feeling like there couldâ€™ve been more. From the beginning Citizen Zero starts off strong with the single â€œWhat A Feelingâ€ which was released before the LP, meaning itâ€™s already a fan favorite. The single is followed by another favorite single â€œGo (Let Me Save You)â€. The track list for this LP has a good variation of slow and fast pace, keeping it flowing which gives it a fully finished sound which is not bad for this being the bandâ€™s debut studio LP.
If youâ€™re a fan of grungy lyrics, raspy voices, and a lot of guitar this LP is definitely for you. The band is getting ready to go on tour, and after this LP is released there will be plenty of new fans that will take advantage of the tour to see the band live.
