Album Review

The new millennium's surge of alt-metal acts and various punk-inspired groups nearly blurred the ideas of originality and credibility. Los Angeles' Home Town Hero emerged from the same scene as Hoobastank and Incubus, totally ignoring such theories. Their power pop spirit blended with an intensity similar to the likes of Stone Temple Pilots and Our Lady Peace, defining Home Town Hero's own stance in rock. First single "Questions" is a ballsy look into the band's tight rhythm section of bassist Todd Burnes, guitarist Drew Stewart, and drummer Ray Blanco.

It's basic, but smart.

Bruno and Stewart opted to form a band out of their love and passion for music. What started out at the Ice Monkeys would later be tagged Insurgence with the additions...
