It’s been a while since my last album review, though to be fair, there hasn’t been much in the way of full releases lately that aren’t just compilations of older songs or multiple artists. But rock band Ebola has finally released their EP “Still Alive,” aptly titled since it’s been a couple years since the band has released anything, and a 5-track half-album is better than nothing! 🙂
Ebola is one of Thailand’s pretty well-established rock bands, having been around since the late 90s, and I respect them for their dedication and the music they produce, though for me their songs have always been hit-or-miss. It seemed like with every album there was always one or two songs that I absolutely loved to death, but then the rest of the album was full of slow rock ballads with sappy sad and pessimistic lyrics that were just bland to me. But because of those handful of songs that are just too awesome for words, I’m always willing to give their new releases a listen.
