I don’t typically pace with impatience waiting in an artist to release a new album, but Eyes Wide Open is an exception to that rule! The band has just dropped their new album The Upside Down today. The follow-up to their insanely heavy 2017 release, And So It Begins (review), EWO has come back to melt your faces off!

If you are a fan of the Gothenburg sound of In Flames, with unique spin that’s all Eyes Wide Open’s sound, this is the band to devour! Another installment of angry, rage worthy growling and clean vocals matched with blasting tempos and creative heavy riffs and other tasty elements, this is an album that metal fans want to hear, on repeat!

Check out the video for Die Another Day:

EWO definitely has their sound dialed in as with the last album and can now just focus on making music that is going to make the listeners feel something. They deliver one killer song after another and good luck catching your breath or having a moment to think about what you are hearing, you’re going to have to hit repeat digest it all!

I honestly wasn’t sure if the band would be able to follow-up their last album with something equal or better, but they’ve answered that now. They absolutely blew it up! Another stunning album that fans get to enjoy from this band!

My favorite tracks on this album, Fire Is the Solution, The Upside Down, Black Clover and Til the Day We Die. But in all honesty, I enjoyed the entire album immensely. Not a bad track on it.
