Right from the outset of Distal's EP appears the sonic hard rock track, "Denver Is Burning." Featured on Versailles Records 'Glory Rock Volume 1/2' Nationally distributed compilation CD and a KrazyWake Productions wakeboarding video, this song is reaching the ears of every spectrum nationwide. Distal puts a spin on their brand of modern rock on 'Tomorrow May', toying with several other venues of the rock spectrum for a pleasurable result. 'Denver is Burning' billows with a low-profile sizzle, while the big, succinct cracks of it's accentuation keep you alert and on your toes. Vocalist Jordan Mills drinks from the Brett Hestla fountain, the rustic feel of his voice and song as a whole a pleasing homage to Virgos Merlot. The brooding title track 'Tomorrow May' is rounded out by a chugging bass and a modest drum backbeat. Distal echoes a band called Celebrity here, the sounds of shoe-gaze galvanizing the song with dynamic bravado. Sprightly and springy, 'What I Heard' is buoyed by a synergy of dualistic guitars, paving out ethereal verses and hammering choruses. The real conductor of 'What I Heard' is it's bass-line, steering it forward in a happy-go-lucky frolic. 'What I Heard' grows into it's own toward the end, as Distal flawlessly tames a blaze of sonic guitars and pounding drums with airtight precision. In the context of 'Tomorrow May', 'Static' is a character that often changes suits. An ever-evolving potpourri number, 'Static' is a sparkling lyrical powerhouse bolstered by remixed hip-hop drums that add a unique twist. 'This Time Around (Tabula Rasa)' is all about drummer Brandon Lopez. Lopez's impressive work is the staple of this frisk, sporty tune. Sleek and soaring choruses couple with spry verses, enabling each part of the song to stand out for a more assertive kick. -Tunelab Music Review Blaring, blistering, crunchy, and in your face is what describes Distal's EP, 'Tomorrow May'. The sonic quality of this finely produced short album is excellent, nicely mixed with the vocals lying prominentlyover a bed of hard rock. They are poised to grab attention. Of the five songs, the ones that stuck out most were the title cut, 'Tomorrow May', and 'This Time Around (Tabula Rasa)'. The sound is fluidly consistent throughout. EP's can be great for giving you a taste of a band or an artist. I just prefer a whole slice of pie. For that matter, give me that whole pie! Here is hoping more things are in store in their future. -Phantom Tollbooth Review It's 8:30 a.m. I'm on my way to work. I'm tired. Why don't I ever get to sleep before midnight? My half-caf venti raspberry mocha is freshly secured in my cup-holder. Starbucks, coffee for people who don't like coffee. The sun is shining. The snow is melting. Life is good. But something's missing. Music. I need music. I slide this new EP I found in my mailbox yesterday into the CD player. Crank up the volume. I'm big on first impressions. As the music starts, I notice my grip is tightening on the steering wheel. My foot is pressing harder on the gas pedal. Both are very good signs. Not only do I stand a better chance of making it to work on time... I like these guys. A lot. And so began my introduction to Distal, a 5-piece modern rock outfit hailing from Edmond, Oklahoma and their 5-track EP, "Tomorrow May". These guys play good solid modern rock along the lines of Chevelle meets 10 Years. Lot's of heavy. Lot's of power. Pleading vocals with a nice rough edge. Distorted guitars that are given plenty of time to roam throughout the songs. Sometimes content with a gallop. Sometimes a wailing solo sprint. Bass that's thick and in your face with plenty of groove. Drums. Where do I start? The drums were a major high point for me throughout the CD. It's nice to hear a guy that's just feeling the song and not afraid to let himself out of the box a bit. Check out "What I Heard" and you'll see exactly what I'm talking about. Overall: This is a good solid release. Everything from the production to the packaging is first rate. So if you're looking for some heavy modern rock to shake the cobwebs out of your head in the morning, look no further. Distal's "Tomorrow May" is for you. Buy it. Play it. Love it. -IndieVision Music.
