While Rise Records is definitely improving their roster after having signed a bunch of good bands over the last year or so, they still have the occasional stinker. Palisades is one of those bands. On “Outcasts” this post-hardcore outfit kicks things off with an intro that starts off bombastic enough before leading absolutely nowhere.

Next up are ten songs that are nothing more than generic post-hardcore tunes with electronic influences for kids.Whiny vocals, dubstep influences, ‘catchy’ choruses… it’s all present and accounted for. It’s like listening to the emo version of Linkin Park and no, that’s not a compliment.

Lacking the talent to actually play in a band, Tom decided he would write about bands instead. Turns out his writing skills are mediocre at best as well.
