“The first single recorded by the Mosheim, Tennessee hard rock outfit Bent To Break entitled “Rise” is something that fans of the genre could immediately sink their teeth into. This is definitely a venture into the darker side of hard rock. The talk of vampiric creatures that rise and feed at midnight, silky smooth clean vocals reminiscent of Breaking Benjamin and rough vocals that bring to mind Hatebreed’s Jamey Jasta at his angriest combine to make this a solid track. The first portion of the chorus is the line “Bleak lives don’t mean much,” delivered in that Jasta-esque scream and that is what pushes this track, for me, from a soft seven to a hard 8. Don’t just take my word for it, go on over and check it out for yourself! http://www.reverbnation.com/benttobreak”
