Not bad at all,not bad at all.....in this jungle of modern rock,emo,numetal and posthardcore the bands just keeps coming and in the end you pick out the ones that have something to give you-both in melodies,attitude and production. In that case,this new U.S band WAKING might be something for you.....put together Staind and Tool and the result could be this 7 track EP titled "The Maze" with this strong hard rock based unit. I wouldn?t go as far as calling their music numetal but it?s definitely modern hard rock,singer Perf has a personal and powerful voice that lifts up the songs to a nice level. I just love the atmospheric "True faith",think U2 meeting A Perfect circle and there you have it.......what they need though is a major label production,this EP doesn?t bad but I miss some heavy weight sound if you should compare to Tool or A Perfect Circle. The music is really good and deserves your attention,a pleasant surprise indeed.
