Today, we feature EGxBH (Eugeine Grey and The Bad Habits), a promising alternative rock band from Lombard, Illinois, USA. In this review, we delve into their fantastic song, Eight46, exploring its character, style, story, potential, and more.

EGxBH is a promising 90s alternative rock band that captured my attention with their latest single, Eight46, released in 2021. For those who are not familiar with the band, they embarked on their musical journey with the single Altered Beings in 2020. Since then, they have released an EP of the same title, Altered Beings (2020), and the single Eight46 (2021). I invite you to listen to the song as you continue reading.

We find ourselves discussing yet another fantastic independent band, this time from Illinois, known for their powerful and unconventional musical blend. However, my experience with their story took an interesting and slightly peculiar turn. Initially, after listening to the first three minutes of the song, I formed a negative impression. But as I delved deeper into their background and watched the full music video, which spanned 9 minutes and 17 seconds, I was completely blown away for various reasons. Allow me to share the details with you.

EGxBH consists of a group of dynamic and talented gentlemen hailing from one of my favorite cities in the world, Chicago. They fuse elements of rap, nu-metal, stoner rock, alternative, and progressive rock, showcasing their dominant musical character. At first glance, they may appear to be another rap/nu-metal band, and I must admit that I initially approached them with that expectation. However, their latest single, Eight46, proves to be an outstanding song that demands recognition. The accompanying music video, which served as my first impression, was a truly remarkable experience. It is one of the most impressive offerings I have witnessed from an indie band in quite some time. The depth of the story, the seamless integration of various elements, and the overall mastery of their craft indicate that these gentlemen possess the potential to reach the top echelons of the industry.

The song begins with a routine and somewhat generic intro that evokes a sense of 90s music. This continues for about half of the track. Although there is nothing inherently poor or negative about this section, it feels basic and predictable, especially coming from a band like EGxBH, who swiftly disproves any preconceptions in the latter half of the song. This transition might cause some listeners to lose interest prematurely, but I offer this as an observation rather than criticism. It is simply how I experienced the song, and I believe in providing honest feedback. Would this part alone make the song unfavorable for me? Not necessarily, but it wouldn't captivate me to the same extent.

The continuation of the song is nothing short of epic. The dynamic shifts immediately immerse the listener in a dark and enthralling world. The band expertly showcases their repertoire with fantastic old-school progressive and stoner rock elements that seamlessly intertwine, shattering any preconceived notions formed earlier in the song. Their masterful storytelling leaves a lasting impact, highlighting their musical perspective, exceptional musicianship, artistic vision, and overall attitude.

From a technical standpoint, I find myself somewhat conflicted. There are aspects of their mixing and character that I genuinely appreciate, while others leave me with reservations. On one hand, the overall sound exudes a traditional, live performance feel that is truly fantastic. This approach is hard to surpass. On the other hand, I sense a lack of flawlessness, a missing touch of polish that could elevate the song further. Nevertheless, I am pleased to see that they have their own approach. The band is clearly focused on establishing their unique identity, and that is commendable. Such attention to detail and artistic vision will undoubtedly play a significant role in their success.

Considering all these factors, I must say that I am thoroughly impressed. There is no denying that Eight46 showcases the remarkable potential of EGxBH, yet I also believe that they have even greater things in store. This song stands as a testament to their talents and their ability to create music that resonates deeply. I am confident that they will achieve great things in their careers.

In conclusion, the Metalhead Community Team extends its congratulations to EGxBH for their great work on Eight46 and wishes them continued success in their future endeavors. Thank you for reading.
