"Resistance Review (Whatzup)"

~ Resistance Review ~
December 8, 2005
D.M. Jones for whatzup Magazine

Teays Vein hail from the small, quasi-Swiss burg of Berne, a few miles south of Fort Wayne. According to the band’s bio, they’ve applied the area’s fabled “Midwestern work ethic” to constantly hone their writing and performing chops. Such attention to detail pays off on Resistance, Teays’ second release.

The album is heavy without resorting to cheap nu-metal clichÈs, and it’s emotionally expressive and varied enough to stand up to repeated listenings. Teays obviously invested a lot of effort in the pacing of the songs as well as finding unique sonics to complement Aaron Winteregg’s passionate vocals and dark lyrical themes.

The guitars on “Fear the Gun” (courtesy of Seth Arnold and Eric Bransteter) alternate and blend between clean and hummingly distorted (think prime Smashing Pumpkins), creating a swirling, atmospheric tension before the song breaks into a punishing refrain. “Quit ripping my life away,” wails Winteregg atop the maelstrom. The loud/soft dynamic is repeated throughout the disc, but feels more like a unifying theme among the songs than a limitation.

Which is not to say there aren’t several changeups on Resistance. Witness the poppy opening on “Long Way,” which hints at a modern-day “Paint it Black,” complete with insistent tom-toms. Pretty Spanish guitar touches grace “You Gotta,” while a mesmerizing acoustic guitar frames “When It Was,” recalling the best moments of late 80s power-ballads (yes, I mean that in a good way).

Teays Vein’s rhythm section definitely delivers the goods here. Drummer Clint Bransteter proves capable of both hammering and finessing the kit, while Robert Hammond’s basslines are always solid and often inventive. His jumpy bass part sets off the syncopated midtempo rocker “Within,” underpinning the layered and leapfrogging guitars.

The band is distilled to its essence on the final track, “Just Like Me,” which rocks hard for the first couple of minutes before shuddering to a halt, Tool-like. A single tick-tock guitar hovers amid distorted swells for a few seconds before everything bursts open into a full-on assault to end the album.

Resistance is consistently hard-rocking but heartfelt. It’s easy to sink into the band’s groove and let the album play through, rather than skipping around for one favorite or another. The depths this band is mining may have not been fully reached yet, but they’ve gone plenty far. Go to teaysvein.com for more information.

"98.9 The Bear WBYR"

"It's very refreshing to see a band that not only plays great rock, but also has alot of fun playing their music live for their fans and giving them one of the most energizing shows they'll ever see live. Teays Vein is a grand slam in all facets of rock 'n roll!!" Jerrdog 98.9 The Bear

"Rock Out For Ovarian Cancer"

Opening band Teays Vein played a tight set that included many songs from their upcoming sophomore cd "Resistance". Charismatic lead singer Aaron Winteregg easily won the crowd's affection with great interaction, an obvious love for what he's doing, and most importantly smooth vocals. I would compare the band's sound to that of a combination of Matchbox 20 and Maroon 5.

Teays Vein (tay'-ez vane)
Infectious melodies with lyrics that anyone can relate to, combined with their high energy show is proving to be the perfect recipe for success. While performing shows across Ohio, Michigan, Indiana, and Illinois and sharing the stage with bands such as Blues Traveler, Gin Blossoms, Sponge, Blind Melon, and Great White, Teays Vein has solidified themselves as a regional force. With the release of their second album "Resistance" the single "Long Way" caught the ear of over 300 radio stations across the nation garnering the band attention from the CMJ (College Music Journal). Teays Vein is currently taking that momentum into the studio for their highly anticipated third album “Hollywood”, which is slated to be released in the summer of 2009 under Surreal Records.
