Fresh Tunes – Coliseum Releases Sister Faith

Coliseum

Coliseum proves once again that less is more on their 5th studio album titled Sister Faith; their throwback 90′s indie alternative rock before the term “indie” even existed, conjures up images of annoying hipsters shopping at Pac Sun. This album is proof that a modern band can be full of aggression and heaviness yet still make an album with practically no “bells and whistles.”

Sister Faith

Sister Faith

While other punk artists fill their music with layers upon layers of guitars backed by a deep rhythm section, Coliseum build’s their songs around melodies and riffs without giving up the integrity of either one  Sister Faith is a classic-sounding album full of straightforward in-your-face rock ‘n roll songs. There are hints of their heavier past,  “Doing Time” pounds out a mid-tempo Dead Kennedy-esque riff, and the five-plus minute “Love Under Will” is driven by bassist Kayhan Vaziri’s thick bass line along side Patterson’s vocals and a alternative sounding guitar that is bit more distant. “Under The Blood Of The Moon” is cut from a similar cloth; impressively, it paints an even darker picture through haunting Misfits like vocals with bass and guitar riff’s that are reminiscent of early Nine Inch Nails.

The back end of Sister Faith is filled with energy, with such songs as “Black Magic Punks”, the upbeat and heavy “Bad Will”. It all ends with an interesting song named “Fuzzbang,” which explodes in its harmonic distorted guitars and is backed by a top notch bass line, this tune could be easily mistaken for a Torche song. “Fuzzbang” is a great way to end the fun, yet heavy album, in which Coliseum show their heavier metal past while creating their punk present.
