Sometimes you just don’t expect much out of a submission and you’re blown away by what actually comes out of that submission.

Candid’s “Faking My Death for You” is a very enjoyable single. The instrumentals show a maturity and quality that you usually don’t see in the genre. The sung vocals are reminescent of Claudio’s (Coheed and Cambria) without giving you the feeling Brian Hoppe stole the style. Though vocals leave a little to be desired, I truly believe that a higher-quality recording will resolve any worries. Throughout the song you can hear influences from Senses Fail, Finch and Coheed but there is definitely an individualist’s spin on a dying style.

I wish I could say more about Candid but there is only so much you can say about a single song. I really hope to hear more from these guys, as they seem to have something good going here.
