As Within, So Without-EP Review

19055204_1315098551941320_2521170360316231924_oFrom my previous posts, you can probably sense that I love discovering new bands, especially in the underground scene. As Within, So Without is a new rising metal-core band from the New York City area and they are a day away from releasing their debut EP, Our Self Destruction. The band consists of four members with Mitchell Lustosa on vocals, Michael Fiornio playing rhythm guitar, Matthew Lustosa playing bass, and Lukas Vitullo on drums. I happen to know both Mitchell and Mathew and am so happy to see their dreams of playing come true. Our Self Destruction is a strong reflection of this bands hard work and dedication to music and the scene, and the character of the band can be heard through their music. The EP consists of five songs that are each melodic, captivating, and powerful; for those who listen to metal-core or post-hardcore music, you must give this EP a listen. The lyrics are strong and meaningful, which is extremely important for developing a connection to a band and As Within, So Without clearly knows how to develop a connection. Lustosas powerful vocals display the passion that he and the other members have and when mixed with the heavy guitar riffs and drums, the perfect metal-core sound is created. As Within, So Without is comparable to Bring Me The Horizon, Blessthefall, and Of Mice and Men, so if you listen to bands like the above, then you should definitely give this band a listen. You can listen to their debut single “Earth Mover” now on their Facebook page, Spotify, iTunes, BandCamp, and CDBaby. Their EP will be released Saturday, August 5, 2017 and the band will be having a release show as well. This release show will be taking place Saturday, August 5, 2017 at The Loft in Poughkeepsie, New York, with doors opening at 7 p.m. There will be special guests and performances as well. Our Self Destruction is nothing short of an amazing EP and I am excited to see what As Within, So Without will accomplish in the future. Great job guys, and best of luck! This is a fantastic start to the career of this band.
