Tempt : Album Review

Tempt’s New Album: A Breath of Fresh Rock Air

I’m thrilled to bring you a review of an album that has genuinely blown me away. The band in question? Tempt, hailing from New York.

I had the privilege of interviewing two of the band members, Zach Allen and Harrison Marello, a few months ago. Their passion and dedication to their craft were palpable, and it left me eagerly awaiting their album. Now that I’ve had a chance to immerse myself in their music, I can confidently say that it’s one of the best rock albums I’ve come across in a long while.

A Dive into Tempt’s Sound
Tempt’s sound is a delightful blend of the familiar and the novel. While you can pick up influences from bands like Def Leppard, their music is undeniably their own. It’s a testament to their creativity and originality. If you’re a fan of bands like Heat, Eclipse, or even the early sounds of Bon Jovi, you’re in for a treat. But even if you’re new to the rock scene, I urge you to give this album a listen.

The album, clocking in at 40 minutes, is a rollercoaster of emotions. It’s joyous, uplifting, and guaranteed to put a smile on your face. From the funky bassline in “Welcome Me In” to the powerful choruses in “Burn Me Down” and “Roses,” there’s something for every rock lover here.

The Highlights
One of the standout tracks for me is “Living Dangerously,” which features a cameo by Dorothy. The synergy between her and the band is electric, making for a memorable listening experience. The guitar solos from Harrison, are a masterclass in technique and emotion. They’re fast, melodic, and perfectly complement the song’s mood.

Another notable mention is “Addicted to Touch.” It’s funky and fresh, and I can easily see it becoming a crowd favorite at live shows. Speaking of live shows, I genuinely believe Tempt has the versatility to support a range of artists, from Taylor Swift to Iron Maiden.

A New Era of Rock
What sets Tempt apart is their contemporary approach to rock. They’re not trying to emulate the past but are carving out their own niche in the music world. Their songs are catchy, with earworms not just in the choruses but also in the riffs and motifs. It’s the kind of music that stays with you long after you’ve stopped listening.

In conclusion, Tempt’s album is a must-listen. It’s a testament to the fact that rock is very much alive and evolving. I’ve had it on repeat since it arrived, and I can’t wait to see where this band goes next. If you’re looking for uplifting, catchy rock songs with brilliant guitar work and vocals, look no further. Support Tempt, buy their album, and keep an eye out for their live shows. I guarantee you won’t be disappointed.
