Don’t get me wrong, these guys can rock and play great licks, but in a grunge sort of style more than hardcore, thrash or black metal.
The lyrical ideas range from dark ideas of black angels’ invitations to Hell in “Burn” to the kind of soft-hearted angel calling a friend away from pain in “River”.
The initials S.O.S plays on different meanings to the listener like a sense of purgatory between finding the strength to go on with a hard life and throwing it all down for a mosh pit to consume.
The quality of escaping a tedious wait like a life spent striving toward greatness while never knowing just when recognition will come focuses in the song, “Diamonds”. Lyrics like, “and it’s not my choice to make for if you live or die/ I don’t have any answers please don’t ask me why/ Cuz I am just your messenger” show how in tune South Of Sanity stays with thoughts of making this life memorable and being joined along the ride.
“Hey baby welcome to paradise…come throw it all down the drain”
South Of Sanity would certainly rock a local venue or entertain the drive to work while played on the radio. The riffs stay smooth and still tear it up at times, but the main benefit is the melody in the vocals which cascades often in sweet soloing. The recommendations Target Audience would make for this band is to continue pushing ahead toward greatness. It’s more than “A Roll of the Dice”, it’s the energy and passion of creating an outlet for all. Because “the faces fade away but tomorrow brings another day” – from “Somber”.
