Discover New Artist Garret Rein
Rein and his high-calibre backups generate a tight (if familiar) heavy-rock attack with a vocal mix that allows the singer’s words to cut through clearly. “Heaven & Hell” is spearheaded by snarling guitar riffs, fire & brimstone lyrics and the artist’s strangulated vocal style. Though it rides a simple progression, we like the tempo change at the midway point as well as the energetic finale that elevates the proceedings considerably. “Pissin’...” is a chuggin’ rocker about frustration and anger that’s got a nice, string-bending solo and a strong group vocal at the end. Garret Rein shows his versatility by sounding altogether different on “...Faith,” which has a country-rock flavor. Rein has solid instincts and a firm grip on the heavy-rock/metal formula.
