Lakeshore – “41” EP

From one band comes another, with a distinct sound, despite having founding members of another band.  Lakeshore manage to bring a sense of nostalgia and melody into their take on metal/metalcore.

For those who haven’t heard of Lakeshore but are fans of heavy music, I would imagine the name Emmure is one that does sound a bit familiar.  Brothers Ben and Jo Lionetti of Lakeshore originally founded Emmure and now have moved on to form Lakeshore bringing in Shawn Adams on vocals and friends Chris Segovia on bass and guitarist Mitch LoBuglio.  For their debut seven song ep 41 the band brought in some heavyweight talent as it was recorded with producer Ken Susi of Unearth and features Karl Shubach of Misery Signals and Jessie Freeland of the Tony Danza Tapdance Extravaganza guesting on the song “Kings”.  This summer Lakeshore will be joining the Warped Tour for some dates in July around the time 41 comes out.

Going into this knowing the Emmure history can certainly set expectations about what is to come but Lakeshore is a different band with a different view on songwriting.  “Heart (To the Fans)” opens up the ep and starts out with a bit of longer intro complete with mysterious ambient music, distorted voices, and some pounding drums that suggest something much heavier is to come.  From the beginning of verse sections, the vocals and structure of the song remind me a bit of the band Blindside, which is a good thing.  Piercing clean vocals, soaring chorus emphasized with screamed vocals, and buzzing guitars that shift into heavy chords are all found here.  In fact, the song does bring back a bit of nostalgia for older, heavy alternative/nu-metal, heavy enough to keep one’s interest but accessible enough for those not metal fans.

Lakeshore, Headed by brothers Ben and Joe Lionetti (guitarist & drummer) who originally founded the metalcore giants Emmure. just premiered one of their heaviest track from their debut EP, “41”. The video can be seen below.

The second single, ‘Kings’ features Karl Shubach of Misery Signals and Jessie Freeland of The Tony Danza Tapdance Extravaganza and can be downloaded for FREE only at lakeshoreofficial.com

Ben Lionetti says, “The song ‘Kings’ was really conceived about my time working with Mitch Lucker (Suicide Silence) and after his passing. ‘Kings’ really took on a life of its own and morphed into just a fun heavy song with a self-empowering message, and that’s something Mitch wanted to create. We wanted the music video to have a real night & day / yin & yang vibe and wanted to tell our listeners we’re not going to be held down by whatever generic genre standards people think a band should abide by. I think you can start to hear and feel that from the first music video ‘History’ to our video for ‘Kings’. We’re excited to get the rest of the record out there to really start showing people what Lakeshore is really about.” Continue reading »
