Lacey Strum album "'Life Screams" reviewed by Blackey from Midnight Mob
This style of music doesn't normally keep my interest, but today I was pleasantly surprised. Most of the time I’ll hear a good singer with catchy hooks and a talented band then sometimes get left feeling empty with redundant in subject matter. I really appreciated Lacey Sturm creating music that's encouraging and hope inspiring in its message while still remaining heavy.
It was very refreshing to hear in the Alternative Metal genre. I especially liked a few of the stylistic choices she made as a vocalist to tell her story. You can hear in her voice that the message is authentic and something she's passionate about which caused me to hit repeat after it finished. Nothing makes me hit snooze more than a seriously gifted group of musicians trying too hard to be dark and edgy.
