When I began to read about Allerus on their Facebook page I was excited to give them a listen. The way they described themselves and the bands image on their online profile seemed promising from jump street. Upon hitting play on their music page, I was not let down. As I have stated time and time again to often local bands fall into the desire to belong to a scene and they end up making generic safe music. Such is not the case for Allerus. With big atmospheric guitars, creative compositions, and an all around unique sound Allerus is a must listen.
Sounding like a tamer version of The Devil Wears Prada meshed with the glory days of Underoath I fell in love with every track from these guys. As you all must know by now, I love bands who have screamers but also have a talented singer. The production is spot on, the songs are wonderfully crafted, and the slight digital presence trickled into the music created by Allerus is amazing. Make sure you like them on Facebook, and follow me on twitter and here for future Allerus updates.
