The new Enemy Remains album is short, but SO SO sweet! Hard hitting, powerful vocals, and piano, all packed into a seven-song disk. With the January 20, 2017 release of No Faith in Humanity, Enemy Remains is hitting the road in support of their new album.
Enemy Remains was founded in 2005, by Steve Zimmerman (drums) and Tommy Blardo (guitars), and has since had a few lineup shuffles. Scott Kadish (guitars) & Jeff Curtis (bass) round out the strings. Joining the band for undoubtedly, their best lineup and blend of experience is Frank Morin (vocals).
The fellas in Enemy Remains worked hard in the studio with this album and it certainly shows. From the beginning with mysterious piano, then straight into heavy, kick your ass crisp, clean vocals and powerful lyrics, this album is one you turn the stereo all the way up to 11 with. With songs like “Trust in No One,” their sound is similar to Killswitch Engage, straight clean vocals, into the dirty screams, back to timely breakdowns. Intense to say the least. The very next track “Divided by Hate” featuring Nick Bellmore of Jasta seems to be anthem for how the world’s problems all collide, with one king, one ruler, and we won’t be taken for granted. Intense guitars on this track really make you want to hit repeat over and over.
While I anxiously anticipated the release of this album, we were left with the teaser title track from the album “No Faith in Humanity,” and it was exactly what I expected. The hit single was precisely what would put the Connecticut metal scene back on the map. This album is such a mix of amazing talent, that it’s hard to put into words what I’m hearing. It’s just that good.
With no radio stations worth listening to in CT and the future of “radio” becoming digital and internet based, Enemy Remains’ own Tommy Blardo undertook the task of creating his own network. Metal Fortress Radio, the internet based metal station has since helped bring Connecticut’s small, yet growing metal scene back to life. After years of struggling and losing most of the great metal and rock festivals, CT now has two digital rock stations which are helping to bring the great music back and help the local talent grow and be seen. With the task of being a touring musician and owning your own radio station, Blardo has his hands full, but it’s for the right cause!
