EDITORS’ NOTES

If Disturbed singer David Draiman is having fun with his project Device, then why shouldn’t Disturbed guitarist Dan Donegan and drummer Mike Wengren get busy doing what they were born to do? Joining forces with Evans Blue singer Dan Chandler as Fight or Flight, they’ve issued a solid hard rock album that does everything fans of both bands would enjoy and expect. “First of the Last” starts things with tight, assured playing and a chorus that’s backed by harmonies that nail the hook. This is the group's approach: play tough, tight, and rhythmic riffs and then cement them with polished vocals. “It’s Over” builds from reflective verses to heavily harmonized choruses, with lyrics that reflect the frustration of a life not yet fully lived. The group sounds most at home with the acoustic parts of “Leaving,” where it can further reflect and finally hit an electrified guitar solo with just the right amount of melody in its attack. The deluxe edition adds the excellent “Sacrifice” (not the Disturbed song!) and a cover of Judas Priest’s “Some Heads Are Gonna Roll.”

About Fight or Flight

Formed in 2013, Fight or Flight is a hard rock band featuring members of Disturbed and Evans Blue. The group was started by Disturbed guitarist Dan Donegan, who was beginning to work on new material after his band went on hiatus in 2011. Donegan began collaborating with drummer and fellow Disturbed member Mike Wengren and Evans Blue vocalist Dan Chandler, and after recruiting bassist Sean Corcoran and guitarist Jeremy Jayson, Fight or Flight found itself with a full lineup, a finished album, and a deal with Warner Bros. Records. Their debut album, Life by Design?, arrived in the summer of 2013. ~ Gregory Heaney
