Album Review

Upon listening to the opening notes of Lorene Drive, one gets the impression that the musicianship is very good and they might be onto something that is more than just screams and teen angst. However, vocalist Daniel Murillo nips that idea in the bud on "God Knows I Loved You Kid," which seems to change gears with the wind, slowing down before nailing a chorus that brings to mind an early Foo Fighters. From there it's screamo meets nu-metal, as if they're throwing genres at the wall and seeing what sticks. "Let It Go" is a tamer, focused affair that has some semblance of a hook and some strong guitar work from Stephen Fisher and Justin Smith before poking its head into Metallica's turf. Fans of "emo" punk acts like My Chemical Romance, Yellowcard, and the Used would enjoy this band, particularly during the slowly evolving "A Kiss Won't Make This Better" and the ensuing rocker "A Song in the Key of Sex," which is a cross between the Exies and Jimmy Eat World. The best track of the bunch is the short and extremely snappy "Lip Service," which has no fat on it whatsoever. "Change of Occupancy" also has several good points, recalling early Sum 41 minus the sneering and somewhat snide lyrics. The more desperate Lorene Drive sound, the better they are, judging by "Some Kind of Love."


Formed: 2002 in Victorville, CA

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '00s

Aggressive post-hardcore quartet Lorene Drive mostly proffers the same punk-influenced emo angst as better known acts like Hawthorne Heights, Glassjaw, and Cave In. But this young band from California's desert interior also betrays the influence of vintage metal and hard rock (as opposed to nu-metal) outfits like Led Zeppelin, Metallica, and the Black Crowes, music close to the hearts of small-town heshers for decades. Lorene Drive formed in the small high-desert city of Victorville, CA, in 2002....
