A Thousand Suns 'Destroy Create' review

A Thousand Suns

A Thousand Suns is an up and coming band from South Wales, set to release their debut EP, 'Destroy Create'. The three founding members Dan Greenall, Tom Latham and Joe Latham formed the band in 2006 (with the later addition of Super G on bass), and in the past year have played all over South Wales, sharing stages with bands such as Kill The Arcade, 12 Gauge Alliance, Working Class Heroes, Klay and Resonate.

'Destroy Create' was produced by Romesh Dodangoda (Kids In Glass Houses, Dopamine and The Blackout) and is set for release in December 2007, with a launch party at the Cardiff Barfly planned for December 5th.

A Thousand Suns

I'm not surprised that A Thousand Suns has been getting airplay on BBC Radio One and BBC Radio Wales. I can hear hints of Muse and Metallica in their music, which is interesting, and the more I listen to their new EP, 'Destroy Create', the more it grows on me.

They've produced some excellent chord progressions and changes within songs. The drummer sounds great, and is an obvious influence to their sound as well. There's no denying the high quality of musicianship within A Thousand Suns. If you like your rock heavy, and rock music that caters to long attention spans, then they are definitely a band worth checking out.
