2 Cents - Lost at Sea Review

by billy d. gamble

About 20 years ago Los Angeles, California was all about glam metal, but as we can see from 2 Cents' debut album "Lost at Sea", it's a completely different place now. 2 Cents combine American Head Charge vocals with Trivium guitar licks and Avenged Sevenfold drum lines, all with a modern day Southern Metal feel.

On the first track "The Wedding Dress", it has a Mφtley guitar opening with Rage Against the Machine speaking parts delivered by Adam O'Rourke (frontman/drummer) to break out with a replication of Avenged Sevenfold's "Bat Country". About halfway through the album 2 Cents decides to slow down with "Song for Darrell Abbott" an obvious tribute for the former Pantera guitar god. Although it is a ballad, it has a Metallica feel with a 90s alternative kick. 2 Cents also managed to give there album a somewhat nό-metal feel to it with tracks like "Crowd Control" and "Victims of Pop Culture" which has Jesse Fishman (bassist) delivering a fast Lamb of God-esque bass.

Overall the album holds an obvious Trivium influence mixed with abundant yet fast punk drums. The album does have a repetitive nature but punk power chords can do that sometimes. "Lost at Sea" does have the occasional harmonization underneath the fast power chords and short Buckethead sounding solos, but also a very clichιd sound of southern metal.
