Hard rockers RED are no strangers to crafting emotional lyrics accompanied by epic delivery and this sixth studio project ranks right towards the top of its most potent. That’s because the guys once again team with frequent producer Rob Graves (Korn’s Brian “Head” Welch, Pillar) and commit expressions of struggle and hope to a soundtrack of bellowing vocals, fierce guitars, thundering percussion and grand orchestration. While the attention-grabbing title track plays off the idea of leaving behind a legacy, the blazing “Still Alive” could very well be anyone’s anthem of motivation for every pivotal moment until that point.
