My third review for RMM and by far my favorite band thus far. I haven't listened to Threat Signal enough yet to know if I'm going to really like them or not for the long term, but my first impressions are positive, very positive. These guys have just about everything I love. Super heavy, a mixture of singing (heavy singing) and screaming (high and low register), a talented guitar player that rips some leads, a solid drummer and bass player to lock up the rhythm section. The singer at times reminds me of In Flames singer with his tone, but overall he's a lot heavier, but he does use that same tone a little, which is cool by me since I like In Flames.
To me Threat Signal is almost the total package. Only time will tell for me personally. If I still like them next year then I'll know, but for now I recommend Threat Signal and their new cd New World Order. Threat Signal, New World Order. I don't know who I can compare the guitar work to. It's original to me. He has a tone I haven't quite heard before, though I'm sure it's out there somewhere. His style is tried and true and also very talented. I've heard they have or had a guy from Fear Factory, but with a couple lineup changes I don't know who's with them right now. But he's good, better than most, very clear and melodic. He's really a good player.
Threat Signal is a solid band that I recommend. Heavy and talented, one of the best first impressions I've had in quite a while.
Threat Signal Kicks Ass!!!
