"Empty" EP Review
It's been a bit since Allies Always Lie came out with their previous single "Dr. Awkward". Let's dive into our review and tell you why you need to check these guys out RIGHT NOW! The opener "Empty" gets right into it and goes straight for the jugular. The brash Metalcore sound is on full display and builds into the melodic chorus. The sound brings to mind The Ghost Inside as its chock full of breakdowns and will surely get some sing alongs going with the live crowd. "Hide" is from top to bottom, pure destruction. The breakdowns are totally bonkers and the aggressive vocals take the track to new heights in such a short span of not even three minutes. "Her Mistake" is like a runaway freight train. There's a bit of two stepping parts as well as mosh inducing breakdowns. There's some clean sung vocals on the chorus but it's not overwhelming. The track is super catchy while still being hard as nails. The closer "In Your Mind" is absolute chaos while still maintaining a sense of melody. The track is more Post Hardcore sounding than the previous tracks. It ends things on a high note and makes the listener reach for the repeat button with ease. This EP prove these guys are legit and have definitely evolved since their previous release.

Verdict:
Allies Always Lie are back with a vengeance with their new "Empty" EP.





"Dr. Awkward" Single Review
Allies Always Lie are a Post Hardcore band from Utah who last year released their "Dr. Awkward" single to much anticipation. Let's dive in and see what all the hype is all about with these guys. The single introduces itself by way of a heart pounding build before exploding into a wrecking ball of a breakdown. The vocals kick in and immediately it's brought to your attention that they're not messing around. The melodic chorus (without clean vocals) bring to mind the Melodic Hardcore sound. The track then leads back into a destructive nature by way of breakdowns and chaos. There's a nice mix of melody and heaviness on the track that helps set themselves apart from the pack. The end breakdown will cause the ground to split apart, it's incredibly heavy. It's a top notch single from an up and coming band you should keep your eyes and ears on.

Verdict:
Allies Always Lie have a beautifully crushing, melodic masterpiece with "Dr. Awkward".
