Forgotten Roots - Crosses and Circles

North East Punk rockers Forgotten Roots unleash their new mini album upon us here with 'Crosses and Circles', a great slab of commercial Pop/Punk/Rock ala Green Day.

The songs on offer here are well written and full of energy, a great blast!
Forgotten roots manage to come across as compact, melodic and yet aggressive, which isn't the easiest of things to do, but they manage it well!
'403/405' and 'Cut It Out' are the two-standout tracks here, although I have to admit that I loved the Iron Maiden-ish intro on 'Memories' too!

This EP is a great introduction to the band from lil old Blyth, I just hope that they can maintain the quality and intensity of the songs over a full album release, something I'm looking forward to finding out!

Check em out!
