"A Life by Design?" (Warner Bros. Records; 2013)

Reviewed by Jeff Rogers

Fight or Flight is a side project of Disturbed members guitarist Dan Donegan and drummer Mike Wengren. Surprisingly Fight Or Flight does not sound like a Disturbed clone project, much like vocalist David Draiman's band Device does. There is a hard rock style going on with Fight Or Flight. There are also some acoustics as well. It's a various mix of music. Fans of Disturbed would likely follow the members anywhere and they won't be disappointed with this side project.

There are some good rockin' songs on this disc. I gave it a couple of listens because I wanted to juice out all the good parts. The disc starts off heavy and it even ends that way. The tenth track, called "A Void," poses the album title "A Life By Design?"

Fight Or Flight: Dan Donegan - lead guitar, Dan Chandler - lead vocals; Mike Wengren - drums; Sean Corcoran - bass, backing vocals; Jeremy Jayson - rhythm guitar, backing vocals.

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.
