The Ugly Truth by The Congregation: EP review
The congregation has returned to the scene with a heavy dose of rock n roll with their new EP ‘The Ugly Truth’. It contains six distinct songs with one thing in common- they are all heavy with some songs almost reaching metal territory. Loud guitars, pounding drums and distorted bass will make your head move if not your whole body. Multi-award winning songwriter, vocalist Clayton Bellamy’s powerful voice still manages to shine over the heavy music.
Since its inception in 2019, The Congregation has exclusively worked with rock music and ‘The Ugly Truth’ comes with six rock songs to blast through your car stereo or on modern radio. Every song in the EP has a heavy chorus with muse-esque guitar riffs and loud bass in some songs. First track on the EP ‘Soundtrack to The End of The World’ is a fast-paced relentless rock song whereas the last on the EP ‘The Sinners’ is a groovy ballad.
The Congregation puts love above all in their band philosophy. “And love is what this is all about”, Bellamy says “The message in these songs is all about that. Even if things are bad, when you cover them in love they get better”. The indeed is spreading love through their blend of gospel, R&B and hard rock music in their new EP.
