Spider Rockets - Ever After Review

by Dan Upton

.
Ever After is the third disc from this female-fronted four piece from New Jersey. They've drawn comparisons to bands like Audioslave and Godsmack, although the only thing they obviously have in common is the aesthetic of modern hard rock band, flirting a little with a metal. There's the Godsmack comparison anyway, I really don't hear Audioslave in there at all. Another apt comparison would be Flyleaf, courtesy the attitude-laden female vocals.

The songs here are pretty catchy, if not terribly original. They're probably a band that formed out of a bunch of friends jamming in somebody's basement, had a little more talent than the average band, and have had time to refine their songwriting over the three discs. Songs like "Simple," with its (appropriately) simple yet effective groove, or "Something More" with a hooky chorus, will draw you in better than the tripe on the radio. On the other hand, as the CD goes on, the songs start to blur into one another; the only thing to break it up at the end is a decent cover of The Beatles' "Helter Skelter." Toss this on in the background, you'll probably find yourself rocking out to it, just don't pay too much attention so you don't burn yourself out on it.
