CALL ME NO ONE

"Last Parade" (Asylum; 2012)

Reviewed by Jeff Rogers

 

Call Me No One is a trio of awesome musicians. You'll recognize the names if you’re a fan of Sevendust: Clint Lowery on lead vocals, guitars and bass; Morgan Rose on drums and percussions; Kurt Wubbenhorst on bass and programming.

When rumors of this side project were stirring, Clint would talk about the music and remind us not to compare it to Sevendust. "Last Parade" isn't as heavy as Sevendust, but the music still rocks. It's not an unplugged version of Sevendust either. I would recommend you listen without knowing who is in the band -- that way you can absorb the music and forget about the temporary name dropping.

The disc is about forty-five minutes of solid music. There are a few intros to songs that sound strange. "Hillbilly" is one of them -- a banjo starts the track but a ripping guitar takes over and Clint gives some nasty growls all throughout the song. The guitar is solid on this disc and I'd wager to say that the tablature would be quite a challenge to any guitar player looking to expand their riffography.

At times I think Call Me No One sounds like Foo Fighters. It's got punch but plenty of hooks to keep the songs sounding unique. I would say they sound more like hard rock and alternative metal than anything. I'm always a fan of bands who step outside of their comfort zones because either way you get great music no matter the genre.

Download these, "Hillbilly," "All's Well," "Biggest Fan," "Broken Record," "War Song," and "Last Parade."

Call Me No One: Clint Lowery - lead vocals, guitars, bass; Morgan Rose - drums, percussions; Kurt Wubbenhorst - bass, programming.

Rating Guide:

A classic. This record will kick your ass.

Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.

So-so. You've heard better.

Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.

Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
