The Artist I recently checked out the debut release from Bulletproof Snow entitled Punished for my Innocence based out of Michigan.


The band Line-up includes: Trey McLaughlin (Vocals/Guitar), Matt Coon (Bass), Connor Cheney ( Drums) and Jake Yacobell (Guitar). I would say they possess advanced Punk Rock playing and singing abilities, and above average songwriting skills. You will find a musical personality that is in your face and rebellious with a hooky yet hard sound that simply takes no prisoners. Timing is spot on within this genera and musical grooves. McLaughlin can hold his own on vocals, but more importantly he delivers vocal performances that are highly entertaining. The strongest aspect of the production is the Garage Band, Indie-sound quality and the amazing rough and tumble attitude you get from Bulletproof Snow. The music possesses straight forward Punk Rock sound and could even be classified as Hard-Rock or Alternative Rock. All in all great music to get your head wrapped around. Songs will remind you of Fall Out Buy, Patrick Stump, and Hey Monday. The songs Simply put - music with an attitude with thought provoking lyrical content and a classic college rock vibe. I kept waiting for a weak song to come down the pike - I eventually gave up on that. The vibe Overall very upbeat, powerful and explosive with amazing stories that possess incredible highs and lows. CD does a good job at capturing this. The CD has its fair share of truthful moments. Simply put  - very much like life itself this CD personifies life experience, especially from a feminine perspective. The music is 100% honest and pure. Trust me when I say this stuff can't be faked. The production is professional grade from start to finish. There's not many songs you can listen to time and time again. Production quality is Industry Standard. The good Solid recording quality. Solid production value. Entertaining music and rock solid songs. The bad CD tends to be a bit repetitive. The whole CD sounds like one very long song. The ugly Nothing to report.  


The verdict Punished for my Innocence by Bulletproof Snow has everything: good chops, entertaining songs, heart felt vocals and music that covers allot of bases Punk Rock, Alternative Rock to straight up Rock. At the end of the day these guys are probably a total riot to check out live or in the studio. The Bottom Line WARNING - Listening to the Bulletproof Snow will open your eyes to the possibilities of what could be.
