JD Miller - World War X

The 2nd album by this oddly named Swedish band (no one in the band is actually called JD Miller) is quicky becoming one of my faves of 2017. Thick riffing, catchy melodies, very good vox, all the ingredients are there for me to love. And the production is top notch.

Their first disc was forgettable modern rock, but this new one rules my world big time. Here's the description of World War X on their website:
’World War X’ was made to tell a story about a war that is ongoing. A story of good and evil, sanity and insanity, the heavens or hells out there and how they effect our world and the way we live.

”I have an interest in understanding evil. Who is the bad guy — the vampire who kills people and sucks their blood, or the survivalists who kill people to save their own lives? Is evil merely a creation of people? Or is there an evil nature? Or is it in the eye of the beholder?”

– Lois Tilton

The new JD Miller record ’World War X’ sounds like the musical child bred by Evergrey and Eclipse. JD Miller is the thing if you like melodic, guitar driven rock fronted by edgy vocals and soaring harmonies all wrapped up in modern production.


Check out the video for Clouded Minds, it represents well the style of the album:
