Silence of a Silhouette 

Escaping Reality (MySpace.com/SilenceOfaSilhouette)

2044805.t.jpg

This Cleveland screamo group's debut EP follows its idols' styles like they were recipes not to be diverted from. Anyone familiar with Hawthorne Heights and Silverstein has heard it all before. Escaping Reality certainly includes some super-catchy melodies, but they're often marred by a heavy dose of growling backing vocals. Too bad, because singer Danny Desperado ain't too shabby on his own. There's lots of '80s metal-inspired riffage here, showing off guitarists Jeff Peters' and Andy Emergency's skills. And producer Cole Martinez puts a fine gloss on the songs, which indeed sparkle. But they lack any real identity.
