Title: Art of Commitment
Artist: 15Reasons
Label: Graviton
UPC: 8718503560243
Genre: Rock

15 Reasons is a Brussels based power rock-metal band that draws inspiration from modern hard-rock-metal outfits such as Stone Sour and Godsmack without hiding their undeniable roots feeding off bands like Metallica & Alice in Chains. While the band has been around for a few years with Valéry Granson (guitars) and Fred Werner (drums) at the helm, 15 Reasons has finally tapped into it's full potential with the addition of Nicholas Brynin (Bass & Vocals) in 2012. Between the three of them they have played some of the most prestigious venues and festivals in Belgium such as Durbuy Rock Festival, Francophiles, Fête de la Musique, Orangeries Botanique, VK and a memorable support spot for Channel Zero at the Biebob. They also had a chance to play the massive Sziget Festival in Budapest in 2012 alongside The Killers, Placebo and Korn to name but a few. Things are moving fast for the new line-up as 15 Reasons is on the brink of releasing it's third album, entitled 'The Art of Commitment' on 21 March 2014. The album will be released via Graviton Music Services, home to some heavy hitters like Channel Zero, Cayne and Last Day Here. The album was mixed and mastered by François Dediste at Ear we Go Studios who was also responsible for their last effort, Second Coming (Suburban, 2010). Having already released two full-length albums, surviving some line-up changes and playing countless live shows since 2006, the 'The Art of Commitment' makes for a fitting tile. Unlike the past two albums (Equilibrium & Second Coming), this album has been a true creative collaboration between the three members of the band with Val bringing in the riffs, Fred handling the lyrics and Nicho creating the melodies. Half the songs were road tested live for a year before recording them with the other half enjoying on-the-spot creation in the studio, resulting in a mature yet spontaneous set of songs. Uncompromising, determined and focused are but a few words that could be used to describe their latest effort. 'The Art of Commitment' showcases an eclectic collection of songs about rabbit holes, broken mirrors and the damage done... "The broken shards of glass fall down onto my feet, A million eyes stare back to me in disbelief, Mirror mirror on the wall, Set me up to take a fall...." is an example of the dark yet tongue-in-cheek nature of the lyrics featured in the song, 'Mirror/Mirror'. The album showcases a wide range of influences from power-rock to metal with a touch of post/groove metal to boot. Lead guitarist Val delivers some monstrous seven string riffs and can shred with the best of them. Drummer Fred is a hard-hitter who lays down heavy grooves that support the thunderous bass lines, creating a monster low end. Nicho brings back to life the term 'power vocalist' and he stays true to form with an emotionally-charged, breathtaking performance from start to finish. There is no possible way that 15 Reasons can be accused of being one-dimensional with their latest effort. Moreover, it is an archetypal album that defies what new bands in the hard rock and alternative metal scene are doing at the moment.
