Saint Asonia's self titled, debut album is finally here and it is going to blow everyone away. Every track has a different message, and all of them are extremely hard hitting.
Picking a favorite is quite a challenge, but after listening to the album several times all the way through, a few favorites have found us. Every track obviously stands out for their own reasons, but for us the favorites are "Let Me Live My Life" and "King Of Nothing."
"King For Nothing" is one of the heavier tracks on the record, and the lyrics tell quite the story. The story appears to be about someone who has vast potential to do great things, yet they choose to isolate themselves and let themselves get torn now. . "If you pull yourself together, you could be something. You're one step closer to the throne, king of nothing." You can't get anywhere if you're not willing to help yourself. You can do anything you set your eyes on, as long as you're willing to step up and do it.
"Let Me Live My Life" is not only catchy, but a massive 'fuck you' to anyone who has ever stabbed you in the back. Sadly, that is something everyone has experienced at some point in their life, so having it be sung in an incredibly catchy, awesome way, is just perfect.
Other honorable mentions go to, "Waste My Time" which is perhaps one of the sweetest love songs Adam Gontier has ever sung, "Even Though I Say", and "Dying Slowly." Every song is worth mentioning, but those are just some of them.
While listening to this album you will have reminders of love, pain, strife, and so much more.
This is truly one hell of an album, and one hell of a comeback for all the members of Saint Asonia. Here's to new beginnings, and some amazing music. The album is available now and its one you should not pass up on. Words alone can't describe the album, it needs to speak for itself. You can get it on iTunes, Amazon, or in stores wherever music is sold.
Don't forget Saint Asonia embarks on their first tour August 14, then after will be touring with Seether whilst playing several festivals along the way such as Louder Than Life and Rock Allegiance.
All reviews have the date they were written, the album title, and the band's name, with the exception of Life Starts Now by Three Days Grace and Dear Agony by Breaking Benjamin. Those dates were guessed at, as they were written well before the website began.
