EP: Days of Thieves
Release Date: November 30, 2018
Days of Thieves, a 2-piece rock band from Kingston, Ontario, released their debut self titled EP in November 2018. The band consists of Mike Brown (vocals/guitar/bass) and Kyle Cochrane (drums). According to the duo, “Days of Thieves captures the intensity with hard-hitting rock and captivating lyrics that
The EP begins with “Flag’s High”, a
“Defamed” has an interesting beginning with a nice fuzzed out riff. The long intro to the track allows the introduction of each instrument to be highlighted before the vocals begin. The addition of a very snarly, aggressive bass aids in capturing the attention of the audience.
“Incoming” begins with an interesting intro that sounds like a siren (very Death From Above inspired). There is more of a sense of urgency than other tracks between the siren sounds from the guitar and the beats from the drums. This showcases their creativeness.
The EP ends with “Twilight Monster”. The track begins noisily, with many different sounds – pick scratches,banging on the strings, etc. More structure is soon added through the addition of a guitar with a whammy pedal and a second guitar and bass playing lower notes. The vocals are interesting on this track, which aids in keeps the listener engaged. Towards the middle of the track the melodies become quieter before it continues to build up before the track ends. This addition also aids in captivating the audience, as they never know what is coming next. This was, hands out, my favorite track on the album.
Overall, I am very impressed with the debut release from Days of Thieves. They did not try to jam pack too many lyrics into each track as they showcased their creative abilities throughout the melodies they created. The harmonies they added on each track, just added something a little extra to complete the track. According to the band, with the “thick chunky rock riffs with haunting catchy melodies, Kingston’s 2-piece rock band Days of Thieves promises to deliver.”
Hey! My name is Melissa. I’m a Special Education Teacher from Newfoundland. Music has always played an important role in my life. Growing up I would spend countless hours listening to the Top 40 Countdown on the radio to record a song I liked to cassette. Then it was the hassle of carrying around a Discman and many CDs because you definitely wanted a variety. Gotta love the nineties! However, it wasn’t until volunteering for the ECMAs in 2004 that I realized that there was a whole other world of music that I was missing out on and I haven’t looked back.
