A Change Of Pace
Prepare The Masses
Immortal Records

You're sitting at your computer staring blankly at the screen, trying desparately to think. Think of music, genres, opinion, essentially...the review. Otherwise know as "writer's block", it can hinder a reviewers' ability greatly. I had this problem when I stuck in A Change Of Pace's newest album Prepare The Masses. How did I break out of it? I saw them live.

It just so happened that A Change Of Pace was playing a show with fellow rockers Moneen and Alexisonfire last night in my area. How else to better experience their music than to see them play it live? And I was right. Their album brings such an energy and sound that it can only be topped by their concert. A couple of my favorite songs from the album were "Weekend Warriors" and "White Lines and Lipstick". These songs proved to be crowd favorites as well. However, the song I most enjoyed was "War In Your Bedroom", but it did not get played, despite the persistent audience member requesting it.

After the evening was over, I had an excellent pop-punk album complete with everything from some Metallica, a little Hawthorne Heights, and a tad touch of The Starting Line. Not to mention the energy-filled live show complete with synchronized head-banging. Excellente!
