Halo Tora- Always The Last to Know ( Single Review)
The band have appeared at several festivals including the UK’s ArcTanGent. Halo Tora are Chris Alexander (Guitars/Vocals) Ian McCall (Guitars/Vocal), Mark Young ( Bass), Chris McKeown ( Drums), Ryan Connery (Keyboards)
Always The Last to Know is the latest release from the band’s album Man Of Stone: First Chapter, which is available via Spotify, Itunes and Deezer. The track itself is a multi-layered and melodic path of Alt and Prog rock that is sure to appease fans of Coheed and Cambria and Karnivool.
The intro is a structured beautiful and intricate timbre that attacks the listener’s ear in juxtaposition with the opening lines of Alexander’s vocals. This paves the way for an expressive track that features a keyboard section that adds depth and mood. The vocal melody qualities are to the point and combine with stirring guitar lines that build to a climax that exposes the band’s raw emotions. The swirling mix of textures creates an eloquent and tender track that would appear to any sensitive rock fan.
