Reviving The Apparently Dead
January 2009
Released: 2007, Independent
Rating: 3.0/5
Reviewer: Simon Lukic

Thismeansyou are another female fronted rock/metal/punk hybrid. Lead by the impressive vocals of Kim Dylla, who can sing melodically as well as harsh, the band mixes modern day In Flames, with Disturbed, Static X and Bush era Anthrax in a convincing way.

REVIVING THE APPARENTLY DEAD is far from something that I would listen for enjoyment but there’s no denying the quality of tracks such as “Order 66”, “River” or “My Indulgence” in a modern rock context. The playing is strong and the arrangements focus on hooks and being memorable. With that said there are moments where the band sound a little unsure of themselves and that plagues many new artists who cast their net wide with a varied sound. Its early days, so with a little focus I’m sure that Thismeansyou will hone in a direction that suits them as a band.

With the recent success of artists such as Otep, Lacuna Coil, In This Moment, etc., it’s safe to say that Thismeansyou should find an audience and a label that appreciates their sound.
