MDPR Clients: Riveting Truth - Riveting Truth (EP) - Reviewed By Powermetal! Check it out here at this link: http://powermetal.de/review/review-Riveting_Truth/Riveting_Truth__EP_,37497.html
A little too heterogeneous
The label, with which this formation has found accommodation, and the band name based on a Bible quote make it clear from the start what is going on here. From a purely stylistic point of view, the story itself is not that clear, but since the gentlemen take precedence over their Christian faith, the categorization becomes much easier. The troupe from Toronto, Canada, was founded in 2017 by the two musicians Dave Bentley (voc., Guit.) And Andrew Rudd (b.) Who had previously worked for a Christian rock music company called LEGACY and now lets us go for the first Participate in the oeuvre of your current field of activity in the form of four tracks.
The EP, simply called "Riveting Truth", makes an overall very professional impression, comes out of the boxes with a powerful production and proves to be a real hodgepodge of influences despite the manageable playing time. These range from melodic heavy metal in classic execution to hearty, groove-emphasized Nu Metal. An inner cohesion of the material is given by the subtle rough voice of Dave.
The front man is particularly able to stage himself in the opener 'The Prison' supported by ANGELICA six-string Dennis Cameron as a guest. Since he reminds a little of Zak Stevens on the last CIRCLE II CIRCLE works in the drawn out passages, his fans should also be called here. Not quite as catchy, but a little more technical and filigree in terms of the guitar work, comes 'Stand Trial' out of the speakers, for which the gentlemen can get their long-time supporter Rex Carroll (WHITECROSS) to work.
RIVENTING TRUTH then gets going much more heartily in 'Skeletons In The Closet'. The number, characterized by a pumping bass run, goes straight away and is likely to cause people to constantly jump in the live situation. That is also out of the question with 'Give Up The Ghost', even if the Canadians try a little too tense to get the nu-metal community's attention to themselves.
With this, RIVETING TRUTH's debut, which unfortunately sounds somewhat heterogeneous due to the stylistic range, ends again and, not least because of this diversity, one can expect a very multi-faceted first Langeisen.

RIVETING TRUTH is a Christian Metal band from Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Featuring members Dave Bentley out front (Vocals/Guitars) and Andrew Rudd (Bass Guitars) completing the line-up for Riveting Truth.
The two have played music together since the early ‘90’s and released a nine song independent album with the band LEGACY in 1996. LEGACY played throughout southern Ontario and surrounding areas for several years opening for established bands such as Whitecross before taking a hiatus to pursue different career paths.
In 2017 Andrew and Dave created a new musical project by drawing from their musical influences of melodic groove heavy metal and RIVETING TRUTH was born.
The doubled-edged concept of the band name is that Jesus Christ is the riveting truth
(John 14:6) that can fasten the gospel to our heart, soul and mind.
