Making their dreams come true and releasing their debut album with focused attention and force, Calgary Metal band, The Fatal Pursuit, is a band that is not your ordinary rockers, yet provide a welcoming blend of genre-bending material. Starting off ‘Sinful’ with vengeance over the opening track, “Infinitely”, the lyric “Swallow the sting to numb everything” catches the attention of listeners and showcases that the blossoming guys are mentally ahead of their time. Kicking off the second track, “In Time”, with instrumentals akin to those that you would rock out to over a game of Guitar Hero, cultural roots of Metal are reproduced and laced with modern-day tools to bring to life an instrumental approach that replicates a track that you’d blast at a smoky, grungy and beat-down bar.
Picking up the speed with a Power Metal guitar tone over the fourth track, “Drown The Heart”, The Fatal Pursuit showcases their diversity with an abrupt strumming slow-down that creates a welcoming atmosphere after a bold track full of grit and might. The sixth track, “Overflow”, keeps the highlight on melodic guitar solos that are smooth and prized as the winning approach for The Fatal Pursuit. Slowing it down and closing out ‘Sinful’ with the eighth track, “Fall into Flight”, remnants of Aaron Lewis of Staind show-up within Dylan Lock’s vocals over an emotive track that is placed within the album at seemingly the perfect timing.
Lead vocalist, Dylan Lock, certainly has a scratchy and diverse tone within his vocals that adds an out of the ordinary touch, yet as you listen to the album in full, the vocals grow on you and sound similar to the old-school vocals of Brett Scallions of 90’s Post-Grunge band, Fuel. Instrumentally, The Fatal Pursuit has what it takes to make their name and mission known within an ever-changing industry. Support Indie Music and check out ‘Sinful’ on Soundcloud.
