RELAPSED Into A Former State MTM (2006)
This band are now onto their third name change!
First off they were Caught In The Act, releasing two rather good melodic rock albums, then they became Guild of Ages and now Relapsed.
To be honest it is best if you approach this CD without harking back to the two CITA albums as they have a different sound now.
It is one of those albums you enjoy when you play it but after can't remember much about the tunes nor are you itching to play it again.
Sure, some songs like the opener ‘Welcome To My Life' and ‘Undone' are good, solid hard rockers but it just lacks a killer tune or two.
Give it a listen if you have never heard any of the music before otherwise I fear you will be disappointed.
