Houston based Like Monroe´s debut album "Things we think but never speak" gives the listener a dose of modern metal like a blend of melodic metalcore, symphonic numetal and even pop choruses.
Imagine Linkin Park meets Bring Me The Horizon with a touch of Destrophy and you´ll get Like Monroe.
It´s a solid and well produced album but hardly unique, you can bang your head and singalong to several songs but I miss that special something that makes this band stand out.
Don´t count them out just yet, I will keep them under my radar because great things can come from this band.
Highlights : "The hills", "Circle the drain".
