Release - _End of The Light_
(Century Media, 1995)

Shit, do I ever hate reviewing records without bios! It's my number one pet peeve, but I can't blame this one on the record company, this one is ADRIAN'S FAULT! This CD is another aquisition from LA's Foundations Forum '95. Release are a four-piece band who's music comes across as talented, but at the same time uninspired. The CD itself is a very simple job, consisting of disc, and two-page fold out liner sleeve. It looks like this release could have been an indie album if it wasn't for the Century Media moniker and amazing production contained on it. The music here is slow to mid-paced for the most part, with quite a few tempo changes throughout the course of the entire disc. The vocals are a clean style of agony, quite good if "cleanliness" is your slice of cheese. I hear some semblance to Flotsam and Jetsam here, as well as a little "old" Fight thrown in. The band has some interesting moments with the multitude of random noises they throw in for flavor. My favorite track is "More Life" by far. I'll leave it up to you dudes to decide if you want to buy this CD, however, I suggest giving it a good listen first.
