***OMH Album Review***

Hailing from Dallas, Texas and having formed in 2001, southern hard rockers One Minute Halo are a major force to be reckoned with. Their list of musical influences include such big name bands as Trapt, Incubus, POD, Killswitch Engage, Taproot, Project 86, and Story of the Year. As mentioned on their official website, Oneminutehalo.com, their objective and desire is to reach the masses with their music and bring a positive influence to a negative world.


Their latest effort is a mix of 6 songs clocking in at just over 20 minutes that have their influences permeating the entire album. The album opener "Replaced" begins with an eclectic guitar lead-in and discusses emotional pain and the hope found in the Son as past memories begin to fade away in His unfailing love. The songs "Cherish" and "Making New" almost have the exact same intro as each other but include different arrangements throughout the meat of both tracks. The melodic feel of "Fallen" serves as a wonderful message of human frailty and a peace that is not found within the confines of this world. The musical arrangements continue to accentuate beautiful melodies and hard rock riffs with "When Words are Few" and the more Taproot-esque "Drifting." Unfortunately, I was saddened that the EP had to come to an end after just six amazingly crafted songs that exhibit virtually no flaws.

Fans of bands such as Trapt, 3 Doors Down, Stavesacre, Spoken, and even Tool will love the sounds and vocal abilities of One Minute Halo. They might not bring complete originality through their music, but the fact that they maintain a strong faith in the Almighty throughout their lyrics and having opened for bands like Nonpoint and Sevendust is proof enough to believe that they are anything but one's typical run-of-the-mill rock band. One Minute Halo's self-titled EP is without a doubt, in this writer's opinion, one of the best indie releases of the summer.

The Dallas based quintet One Minute Halo was formed back in 2001 and quickly found their sound as a laid back numetal band with melodic choruses,their self titled debut EP might not be groundbreaking in this genre but OMH has a real nice sound where they let the warm melodies stand in the centre of the song instead of destructive anger.
It's no crystal clear production a la Aaron Sprinkle but in this case,this fat and massive bass dominated sound works very well for OMH - it's really liberating to play these 6 songs loud.
I miss 1-2 standout tracks that will lift this EP to the next plateau but if they perhaps would be picked up by Wind up records and was produced by,let's say Howard Benson...then things could start happening sooner than they can say "superfragilistic expieladocius".

Bio

One Minute Halo merged onto The Dallas Music Scene in July of 2001. Bringing their unique mixture of melodic and heavy grooves to the masses, the band started playing small underground venues gaining fans at every show. Soon they had a following that could not be ignored. After opening for such national acts as Pillar, RED,Thousand Foot Krutch, Seventh Day Slumber, as well as many others and becoming the Regional Finalist in the Talent Competition for Shoutfest 2005; OMH began to get requests to be the opening act for tours with mainstream artists Trapt and was also added on the Texas leg of the tour for the Taproot / Evans Blue Tour.

One Minute Halo has a tour history under their belt that would rival most signed bands.
"Music these days is so negative and in a world with so many negative events we need music that helps people get through the hard times and wake up every morning happy to be alive! It's not about what has happened to us in the past, but about a higher purpose we are able to live. We need to burn the past away and focus on a new day," says singer Jeromy Moorehead.
The goal and desire of One Minute Halo is to not only impact today's culture, but ENGAGE it and make a difference.
