iTunes Review

For anyone old enough to have attended shows by bands like Nirvana and Soundgarden, it might seem strange to think of grunge as “classic rock.” But the Southern California power trio Smile Empty Soul makes perfect sense of such a notion. Its fifth studio album plays nouveau grunge rock with the confident stance of classic rock luminaries. The first cut from 2012’s 3’s rips right into huge walls of foreboding minor-chord guitar distortion as Sean Danielson sinisterly screams “Carve your name into me.” The band follows this with “Ugly,” showcasing its ability to turn on a dime and deliver a heartfelt ballad that balances more mature emotional sensitivity with controlled sonics. The album’s prominent single “Afterlife” pulsates with equally brooding rhythms and a menacing melody. Over this, a relentless hailstorm of distorted guitar feedback growls and howls as Danielson spits out a see-you-in-hell sentiment to his anti-muse.

Amazing as always

This CD is like all the rest of their CDs. AMAZING!!! There is never a bad song on anything they put out!


I love it when a band can keep their original sound yet add a bit of new. This album, along with all their previous work, is a solid hit. I'm liking what I hear. It's music like this that can save us from this god awful age of "music" we hear now a days. Thank you SES for keeping it real.

Smile Empty Soul was a heavy alternative trio formed while its three members were still in Santa Clarita, California high schools in 1998. Led by singer/guitarist Sean Danielson, the band also included drummer Derek Gledhill and bassist Ryan Martin. After honing their sound with numerous hometown gigs, Smile Empty Soul began venturing to the Sunset Strip, and eventually passed a demo to Todd Parker of the Los Angeles indie label ThroBack Records. That exposure led to a deal with Jason Flom's Lava...
