Walls Within / Press

“Just listened to Walls Within and I have to say I was amazed at the journey this band takes you on with their music. When I started with "Numb" the riffs in it where solid and then the other tracks grabbed my attention. "Faceless" is reminiscent of Type O Negative vocals, which is great and the music is awesome it very well maybe the anchor to the album. "24601" was a surprise, it caught me how Walls Within seemed to capture the spirit of Jean val Jean in a current heavy metal song. The ups and downs in speed of the band are amazing, sometimes a band seems to struggle to maintain speed, but Walls Within grabs and doesn't let go, from the start I enjoyed this album. "Saving Grace", "Vows" "Without" are all great tracks. The guitar solos rock and have excellent rhythm. The riffs are smooth and as mentioned, the transitions from slow to fast, high, and low are flawless. "WWII" is definitely a great work to start with and I am surprised these guys aren't all over and if not soon.”

"The opening song, “Faceless,” flawlessly melds the band’s progressive elements with softer facets of hard rock. Chad Carpenter’s vocals are a particular standout, as the instrumentation is designed to augment his performance. Particularly effective is the band’s accessibility despite some of the intricate instrumental passages. Not many bands can pull this off, instead sounding as if they are just noodling to impress. Not so with this track, which draws the listener in and simply refuses to let go." - Octavio Ramos Santa Fe Metal Music Examiner

“Walls Within headlined the 94 Rock Mayhem Battle of the Bands at the Sunshine Theater in Albuquerque, NM on July 8, 2011.”

“Although Albuquerque’s Walls Within are relative newcomers to the world of metal, the band’s members have cultivated experience by playing in other bands. Walls Within play progressive metal that combines the heavy with the melodic. They are currently working on their debut CD. Take Five spoke with the band, which had the following to report.”
