Being a big Progressive Rock fan, I truly enjoy a band that can tell a story with an album. When I am introduced to a band with a more classic rock sound that can do this, I tend to get pretty excited. After listening to In My Disguise’s debut self-released EP, Achromatic, I am in a very happy place.
In My Disguise is a four-piece band out of Ipswich and they have come out with a bang in this debut. I am grateful to be able to share this with all of our Shockwave readers. Not only is the EP filled with big classic rock guitars, smooth bass lines, and immense drums, the band takes you on a journey through a story of life. The lyrics inspire familiar feelings and helps guide you through them in a way most of us are unable to do for ourselves. Achromatic gives words to those things we have never been able to explain.
“Hour Glass” for example deals with depression and feelings of being misunderstood so badly it breaks your spirit, and how this can lead to deep anger. I have been through all of this and know many others who have, yet I have never been able to find the words to express these emotions. “Fear,” though somewhat self-explanatory, lets the listener know that even if we feel fearful we can overcome it if we persist.
Achromatic is put together in a way that helps the listener feel and work through some not so good emotions, and come out more positive for having done it.
Do yourself a favor and pick up Achromatic, available now through the band’s website.
