Overall Album Vibe:

Erez Eisenman has a lot to pull on for his music from listening to Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen and Mark Knopfler to his over four years of living in China. Eisenman and his fellow band mates play a mix of roots rock meets blues.

‘Silent Mountains,’ is the debut release from the band. For the recording of the EP they decided to go old-school leaving behind any computers during the recording and mixes phases deciding to go all analog and record straight to tape. Eisenman says that, “Everything you hear is natural stemming from the sound amps and guitars. We didn’t even use overdrive pedals.”

The EP offers up five tracks starting with, “Better Days,” a bluesy rock song about a relationship going bad featuring a steady drum beat along with guitar parts that dart in and out. This also gives you the first taste of Eisenman’s gristly sounding vocals that can only come from a long life of living and learning.

The second track, “Here in the Dark,” is a guitar driven ballad. On this track Eisenman’s raspy vocals sound just a little bit too gritty for the song. The EP’s title track, “Silent Mountains,” is next up. The roots rock track offers up some nice strummed guitar and harmonica work.

The EP winds down with the up tempo track, “No More Cryin’,” and the closer, “For a Little While.”

Review Tagline:On their ‘Silent Mountains’ EP band namesake and lead vocalist, Erez Eisenman offers up gristly vocals that bring each blues driven lyric sung to life.

Standout Tracks: “Better Days”, “Silent Mountains”,
