October Sky - Hell Isn’t My Home

October Sky’s Hell Isn’t My Home is, in one word, awesome. With a sound that’s similar to Muse, the Montreal-based alternative rock quartet is easily going to become Canada’s next big thing. They’re already making headway, debuting at #4 on MusiquePlus and appearing in rotation on MuchMusic Loud with “Hit the Ground.” One plus to the album is its consistent sound from track to track. The vocals are strong and dramatic without being over-the-top and the tasteful electronic flourishes the band gives its songs are a welcome change from the average FM rock. Standout tracks: “The Darkest Light” and “Sacrifice.” Listen to either song and you’ll easily understand and be impressed with Hell Isn’t My Home.
