RISE TO REMAIN – THIS DAY IS MINE
Released 19th December 2011 (EMI Records)
Words: Gaz Martinez
Anybody familiar with Rise to Remain will know of the lead singer Austin Dickinson’s connection to Iron Maiden (Son of lead singer Bruce Dickinson) and as such, Austin and co have a lot of expectation to live up to. You can definitely hear a tinge of Bullet for My Valentine influence on the musical style Dickinson’s vocals when the chorus hits. One would be forgiven for mistaking this song for one of BFMV’s and it would have been nice for Dickinson to employ a singing style more unique to himself.
However, with its chorus is catchy, the drums are solid and the harmonies and riffs intricate, This Day is Mine is a worthy introduction for anybody unfamiliar to Rise to Remain and I am left with a strong inkling that this single is far from the best material on the album City of Vultures, which can only be a good thing.
We really liked the idea of Chasing. But we wanted to be Chasing something. Cadence is Latin for rhythm and it’s also the term used for the end of a musical phrase, so it fits well in that sense. It’s obviously also a girls name. Being the romantics that we are, it vaguely symbolises the chasing of something that you want in life, whether that be a person or anything else. We also wanted our name to be slightly different!
Which bands do you draw inspiration from musically?
Individually our influences range from metalcore to pop and all in between, including Rockabilly! Bands that inspire us at the moment are Mallory Knox, Deaf Havana, Hildamay, Don Broco, Young Guns, Devil Sold His Soul and Lower Than Atlantis
What can people expect from your live show?
It’s all about the energy! Our live shows are where people can see our raw passion spill out in all its glory. We put absolutely everything into them, all that we’ve got. And as cliché as that sounds, it’s true. We love getting the crowd involved and we get amongst as much as we can. It’s about having a good time and that’s exactly what we aim for.
