    Subject To Change

    by Jesse Flores

    Switched's debut album, Subject to Change, is sure to turn quite a few heads. Finally, a sound worth waiting for has emerged. Looking for ways to vent the effects of loss, depression and more, the Cleveland, OH based five-piece combine the sounds of hard hitting, groove based drums, to heavy, riff-oriented guitar and bass, which are all molded together by the uncontrollable screaming rage and singing of Ben Schigel.

    Unlike most hardcore bands who have managed to pound as much double bass, palm-muted guitar and screaming vocals as possible into a single song, Switched has mastered the art of maintaining that raw heaviness, while managing to NOT ruin the song. Tracks such as "Inside", display just that. Opening up with a few lines of guitar, moving into a full band throttle, followed by an "off beat" verse backed with melodic harmonies rips open this song. Next, your hit with an angry pre-chorus which moves into an oddly uplifting chorus, repeat the process for a second verse, and then end the song with Schigel climaxing to display just a glimpse of his most viscious screams.

    Music today has lost and forgotten their roots, but Switched has gone back, dug them up and resurrected the true meaning of heavy rock. There are no traces of the ever so popular "rap-rock" oriented into this album, for this would have been too easy for the master-minds of Schigel brothers Ben (lead vocals) and Joe (rhythm guitar). Switched has taken the road less traveled and gone beyond the call of duty. They've paved a new path in which many will follow. They've taken the hardcore scene and made it more than just "worth lisening to." So open up your ears and tune into your local radio stations for the first single off their debut album, "Inside."
