New World review at JRock247

I did a retro review for JRock247, flashing back seven years ago when BACK-ON released New World.


BACK-ON’s mini-album New World was released in 2006, a few years after rap-rock reached its zenith in popularity in the U.S. It’s hard to not draw comparisons to certain bands, especially when the title track fits so perfectly in that genre. There’s the subdued keyboard in the beginning, the heavy guitars that follow, and of course, the juxtaposition of rapping and singing.

The dual voices, however, are what make BACK-ON different. Teeda skillfully delivers rhymes, mixing up tempo and languages; he’s proof that BACK-ON isn’t just a rock band that threw in some rap.
