EP Review: Liberation Of Man
Dover-based Liberation Of Man did choose wisely when settling for their debut EP's title: 'Burning Bridges' marks a fresh start musically for both frontman Thom Cakebread and bassist Sam Moore as they have been with now parted alternative rock outfit Common Outlaw from 2010 to mid 2014. It's an exciting new beginning for the duo who have found active and creative support in drummer Matt Barker in autumn last year when the band gave their debut performance as Liberation of Man at The Harp Restrung in Folkstone. Since the EP launch of 'Burning Bridges' is set for June 6th at the same music venue, we have come full circle here. But what can the audience expect from the powerful and passionate group of three? The three tracks featured on the band's debut record bristle with explosive instrumental energy and firm vocal intensity, that's for sure



Opening track 'Allies' salutes the audience with the distorted, shaky sound of guitars being plugged in - the song's instrumental setting is geared to fiercegritty sonority and dynamically rhythmic, vigorously humming drum beats as well as tensely reverberative, dim and noisy riffage confirm the composition's tightgrim direction. Feisty vocals full of energy and subtle bitterness join in and the listener finds himself opposed to a boisterous, thrilling tonal outburst. Now, who could resist to be an ally of this?

Clangorous and vivaciously urging drum cascades merge with atmospheric, vehement bass swagger, fall into line with dramatically impulsive guitar waves and accentuate the confident and melodious vocal guidance; 'My Disease' doesn't hesitate to excite and thrill, is an infectious crowd-pleaser (performed livemost certainly. 


A stormy and boldly rousing instrumentation is triggered with Liberation of Man's first single release 'Come On'. Deep-toned, sonorous bass sound and edgy, suspensefully wavering riffage prevail whereas powerfully driven, perkily rhythmic drumming lays the song's dashing instrumental foundation. Strong and ardently howling vocals eventually contribute to create and intensify its spirited and insistently gripping tonal atmosphere. Exciting rock bravado shows!
