We Are the Fury Venus Review

by Zane Ewton

.
We are the Fury has gone through a few name and style changes since the band's inception in 1999.

Originally lumped in with the slew of post-hardcore, emo bands that have cropped up in the early part of this decade, We are the Fury have made a wise decision to distance themselves and have since become a quite credible and entertaining rock and roll band.

Venus is full of trashy rock songs that borrow a little from emo, but more noticeably from 70's glam, hair metal power ballads and some simple, old-fashioned Rolling Stones groove.

Guitarist Chris Hatfield is an obvious highlight from the start. His playing is crucial to the songs, ranging from punk fury to bluesy minimalism. Vocalist Jeremy Lublin is the other highlight. He took care to borrow the right tricks from Marc Bolan, from the slightly silly lyrics to the voice that slides from whispered growl to full-on roar.

The rest of the band adds all of the bells and whistles that add stacks and stacks of hooks to each song.

The band's influences are shrieking for you to notice them. The band has enough fun with them, and cops to it so well that you can't help to enjoy the ride.

Considering this is We Are the Fury's full-length debut, it might be easy to toss them aside as a simple revival band that will come and go in a few months. Truth is, they have a lot of promise, and Venus is a top-notch debut.

Release Date: May 22, 2007
