THE COMMANDER - IN - CHIEF " Battle For The Mind "
( Self - released )
EP CD - USA
Rock/metal/hard rock/melodic hard rock
The Commander - In - Chief are newer act based in Los Angeles, fronted by female singer/songwriter/guitarist with the same name ( not sure what her real name could be ). With her male assistents, she has released an actuelle EP, with 6 tracks in, entitled " Battle For The Mind", and she receives for mentioned EP mainly a positive reactions from worldwide press. With 5 authors songs and 1 cover ( pretty interesting and unique version of Black Sabbath classic " Paranoid" ) she introduced herself as a original ortist with interesting musical views. The Commander- In - Chief plays sort of rock/metal with modern approach, metalic soundscapes includings, and presents of melodic vocalizations as well. Even of evidental influental traces from 90's and less 80's period ( some comparabilities with Doro and Pat Benatar comes to mind ), the band is judging by releasing ideas, deeply in 2000's. A production of Eric Greedy also communicate with standards of our time, and generally " Battle For Mind" as a EP offers a more interesting challenges.
