London-based Metallers SANITY BURNS have finally got their self-titled 10-song debut album out - and diversity of music seems to be the name of the game here when it comes down to the band's song structures. SANITY BURNS have clearly pushed some musical limits further for themselves on their debut record that allow them to try out certain things within their music. For their obvious credit, it must be said that sometimes it's just great that you don't limit your own creativity to some certain things but let yourself take a ride through different music genres, in order to reach that as optimal thing for yourself as possible that you enjoy doing for the rest of your life. In SANITY BURNS's case it has also happened; at times the guys thrash hard, reminding us of a band like TESTAMENT momentarily (just listen to 'Relentless'), and then MEGADETH the next minute ('Killed In Action') - or even LAMB OF GOD ('Fracture') at places. But if that wasn't enough, by revealing the band's whole songwriting arsenal, there's nothing wrong to slow down for a moment either: doing a properly made ballad song ain't everyone's game but SANITY BURNS do succeed at that pretty well in my honest opinion with 'Embers', Christopher Simmons proving to be quite a skilled singer with his rather wide yet solid vocal range. The further this album progress on, the more one is about to realize how much there's some hidden musical potentiality in this UK Thrash / Heavy Metal act. The album's closing song, 'Schizophrenia', that lasts over 10 minutes, basically sums up what SANITY BURNS is all about: finding new ways to explore yourself in (Thrash) Metal music, in which the word diversity doesn't scare you away. The game has been opened in a fine way for SANITY BURNS; a couple of really good scores have already been made on their self-titled debut, and it goes without saying it but they are determined to score even more in the future.
