Chase The Ace are a young up and coming band in Australia that play an interesting and varied mixture of old school traditional metal with layers of thrashiness and a fair amount of modern groove with some very chunky guitar riffs to hold it all together. They really do a good job of blending their various influences into a cohesiveness that is honestly a bit surprising considering they have only been together for a handful of years. They released a previous EP in 2013 called The Evolution which I don’t have to compare how their sound has developed, but so far they are off to a solid start with this album. There is a bit of roughness around the edges here, and some room for improvement to be sure, but the music doesn’t get tiring and in fact they have shown an admirable penchant at varying the sound from one track to another and I think this diversity suits the band well and will keep you coming back for more. This album definitely gets better with each listen and shows some really good depth!
