LAUGH AT THE FAKES
"DETHRONE THE CROWN"
Self Released

"DETHRONE THE CROWN" is the newest release from Toronto, Canada's LAUGH AT
THE FAKES
. This is the full length follow up to their 2011 EP release "ONE NIGHT
ONLY". The band has been playing together since 2010 and have really created a sound
for themselves. I think I was expecting a straight forward Metalcore band, but these guys
are in no way that. They are a Metal band through and through, but have a very unique
sound to them. They take classic and traditional Heavy Metal music and rev it up a few
notches. They have a very hard and aggressive style of New Wave Of British Heavy
Metal that was huge in the 80's, then they douse it with some grooved out Thrash Metal
and give it some flavouring of Progressive Metal all through out. I was quite surprised by
their sound, but also very pleased. At times they do have a bit of a Metalcore vibe, in the
more aggressive and faster parts, but that's it. I was really digging these guys more and
more the deeper I got into their release. The vocals at first took me back and I felt they
didn't fit, but they quickly meshed well with the music. I ended up loving these guys by
the end of the CD. If you were to take the best parts of
IRON MAIDEN, HAVOK,
SOUNDGARDEN, THE CONTORTIONIST, BETWEEN THE BURIED AND ME,
AVENGED SEVENFOLD, CYNIC, DIO
& MASTADON, mixed them all together and
the end result would be
LAUGH AT THE FAKES! Definitely a band well worth
checking out!
