Review by Tony Cannella

Hailing from the U.K., ReVerbed are a young band, very young, like in their teens young. They have just issued their debut album “Lies You Can Believe”. Throughout the course of this 13-song, 50-minute debut, the band displays a straight-forward hard rocking, Punk-Rock like energy and exuberance that is quite dominant until the album reaches its conclusion. In its ranks, ReVerbed features two females and two males, with lead vocalist Zoe also contributes guitars. The pounding opener “What Went Wrong” showcases the bands Punk Rock leanings as this is just a straight-forward energetic opener and sets a good pace for what is to follow. The slower paced “Obsession” is next and features an effective, grinding riff and has a bit of a classic rock vibe going for it. The adrenalin fueled “Run” picks up the momentum and energy once again. Other highlights include: “You”, “Scream”, “Not Alone”, “Shadow” and “Burn” which immediately became a huge favorite, thanks to its infectious chorus. On “Lies You Can Believe”, ReVerbed offers something a little rawer than a lot of the female fronted metal that is out there these days. Despite their young age, and I am sure that many people will focus on their youthfulness; the band displays a musical maturity beyond their years. Whatever the case “Lies You Can Believe” is a good first effort at any age.

Rating – 70/100
