“Faceless” is the recently released Alternative Rock CD by the talented group Ninecircus. This album is comprised of songs that are splashed with a dynamic balance and a rich, consistent sound. Opening up the CD, the song, “Immortality,” is steeped with hypnotic vocals that are surrounded by crunchy guitar. Another track, “Beautiful Mistake,” has a softer feel but still carries an edgy attitude as the searing guitar adds an electrifying appeal. “Love Alert,” is an irresistible song with a melodic melody and charming vocals. You will find this album has an upbeat and vibrant tonality that is set to thought provoking lyrics. If you like Kings of Leon or U2 then you will find the fabulous collection of songs on the excellent album, “Faceless,” well worth listening to.
The band is from Santo Domingo, in the Dominican Republic, and cites bands like Creed, Matchbox 20 and Pearl Jam as their major influences. Lead vocalist Eliseo Alba certainly has that exact gritty vocal style and in Don’t Sell Out they have penned a swaggering ballade with all the anthemic trimmings that you’d expect from such a pedigree. They also manage to pull the sound off immaculately, delivering an upfront and powerful track that will swell the hearts of rock ballade fans with passion. "Powerfully produced Radio rock with a melodic punch" – Dave Chislett-Matchbox Radio 24.
