Confide Shout The Truth

Confide Shout The Truth
Shout The Truth is a straightforward listen from beginning to end and Confide have done a great job in making this release flow. It's easy to hear Confide's influences from the likes of Underoath and the more redeemable aspects of the Devil Wears Prada throughout Shout The Truth but this release of screamo with a hardcore attitude lacks the technical ferociousness that Underoath can unleash at any time. Similarly, that doesn't mean anything should be taken away from Confide, delivering pounding tracks like "Millstone" and "Can't See The Forest For The Trees," while "City To City" acts best as the thrash dance anthem of Shout The Truth. The entirety of this album isn't all heavy, busting tracks, as the record navigates into a more laidback and instrumental area with "00:00," and "This I Believe" produces this album's acoustic ballad, adding another dimension. Confide's Shout The Truth is a mediocre release that doesn't really falter but fails to excel. (Science)
