Vancouver based Marianas Trench kept us waiting for 4 years before their first full length album was recorded and released on 604 records. I raved about their strong self titled 6 track EP from 2002 and when I heard the new single "Say anything" earlier this year from this album, I knew right away this band would deliver. And for the ones who doesn?t own a copy of their EP, I can inform you that 3 songs from it ended up on "Fix me" - they are the next single "Decided to break it", my personal fave "Far from here" that includes some heavy riffing plus the catchy "Push". Chad Kroeger of Nickelback and Joey Moi has helped them to refine their material and the band couldn?t have asked for better assistance. How many bands out there would come up with an idea of doing Beach Boys harmony vocals in a modern rock track?! Well, Marianas Trench did and pulled it off very elegant on "Shake tramp". So you thought their label mates Armchair Cynics were pretty good, then Marianas Trench will truly set your world on fire as well. Frontman Josh Ramsay sings that he feels so low in "Low" but the song rocks the shit out of most mainstream rock music today, I love this track!
Radiohead â€“ originally known as "On a Friday", the band was given two weeks after signing to Parlophone to change their name. The band renamed themselves after the 1986 Talking Heads song "Radio Head" on the album True Stories, claiming it as the "least annoying song" from the album.
