Album Review: Contender

Artist:  Forever Came Calling (Official, Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, BandCamp, Last.fm)

Forever Came Calling is a talented young pop punk band that brings elements of emo and post hardcore to the mix on Contender.  The result is high energy, melodic, and emotional punk rock similar to the likes of Alkaline Trio and Taking Back Sunday.  What Forever Came Calling does well is play with high amounts of energy.  Stylistically this is well worn ground, but as a record Contender works at bringing a new voice to this genre with music that sounds familiar without being trite or derivative.
