Scar For Life: Sociophobia

Scar For Life is a Portuguese hard rock band from Lisbon and Sociophobia is their fifth album to be released on the 22nd of July. It starts off with a short ambient instrumental tune called "In our Sights" and it’s a nice intro. It’s followed by "Strike Down", a heavy enough song which has a lovely chorus and had me humming it along, I like this as it flows from start to finish with a lovely guitar solo played extremely well by Alexandre Santos. "Wasteland" is next and it’s a rocker and very fast with some excellent drumming and it has a nice catchy flow to it. The next track is "Rise Again" and it’s a stunning piece of music and it had me playing it over and over again as I couldn’t get enough of it. Then we have "Ballerina" a lovely rock ballad that gets right into your heart. "Don’t Stand in My Way" follows and it’s one of those songs that puts a smile on your face, it had my head bopping to it with a beautiful riff and no nonsense lyrics. The next tune is "Numb" and WOW what a powerful instrumental and it’s a little bit proggy as well. "Clockwork Hysteria" comes along next and just blows you away it’s so brilliantly put together and has some excellent vocals on it. Then we have "Flying High" a soft ballad that is a nice composition but probably the weakest one on the album but that’s because the bar was set so high on the rest of the album. The following one is "Send Me An Angel" a real resonant track that pulls you in. Next up is "Walk Away" and definitely you couldn’t walk away after hearing this gem. Sociophoiba closes with "Bullet To Spare" and what a fitting end to an amazing music experience that had me like a teenager listening for the first time to those classic albums from the 70’s that’s how much I rate this masterpiece.

I would 100% recommend you buy this unbelievable album when it’s released. I have no hesitation saying that it’s the best music I have heard in a long time.
