In the back woods of Richmond Virginia, you will find some great history and mythical magic. Nothing like what you will hear from Motion Picture Demise. Travis Tucker vocals set the mood for some overwhelming pop rock. The songs just blend perfectly bringing the vibe of Piper who was fronted by Billy Squire. With this it is brought up to date with American Heartbreak.
Alex Ferraro guitar slinging and his composition is not your basic style. It has an imaginary classic motivation. “Causin’ A Stir” is a driving song to start things off with full impact rock, and a guitar style of Buckcherry.
“The Way It Goes” is one of the best tracks giving way to an alternative new wave feel. It should have no problem getting some radio airplay. Tucker’s sound is in the vein of Mick Jones of the Clash, which has more of a melodic harmony.
“Fail With Me” is a captivating song, which entertains the ivories. Although the main attraction again is the way, Tucker breaks down his expression on every lyric. I had my daughter Sara check the CD, and she said Motion Picture Demise sounds a lot like Simple Plan and Good Charlotte.
So as an old school guy and with the mind of a teenager, clash fans will be delighted to hear what Motion Picture Demise is all about! So hands down, I can see a successful future for these boys from Richmond. Every track will have its special hooks and turns. which will give you hints of a different band from Herman’s Hermits to The Kinks. With adding their raw sound of power! Simply makes this a great CD!!!
