I can see AC/DC or Scorpions as one of there influences. This is getting drunk at a bar or a pub sitting back and listening to the music type of stuff. This is a well written track and its easy to listen to. I give this track a 4.5 out of 5. If you like hard rock music I recommend this song for you.

Anbaric impresses me with every song I listen to. Living the Lie is no exception. Clean hard metal in a vintage fashion, very refreshing especially with the intelligible vocals and intricacies of all the instruments prominent. The song has strong unique vocals, a great lead riff and tasteful solo breaks. The band capitalizes on the use of, and for the lack of a better term, what used to be known as hooks. Great song, great band that capitalizes on their maturity and good taste in metal.

more This is the second song I have reviewed for the band, ANBARIC. Again I am not disappointed. This band is tight and has a real gift for arrangement.
There are times that the rhythm has a late 70's/early 80's vibe reminding me of Journey, Reo Speedwagon, and the ballad driven bands of that era. Although I would definitely not consider this a ballad.
I do not mean this in a bad way. It just demonstrates the style of the great bands of a past era, but the changes of harmony driven vocals to the amazing guitar work that brings a modern touch to this song is really a lost skill that they have definitely found and brought to the forefront of this composition. But like the title says... Back in the Days... It reminded me of a time growing up where harmony and style gave a simpler enjoyment before the gateway of the wild and excess of the 80's metal scene took over.
While the song is quite enjoyable... I think I prefer the first song I reviewed a bit better. Now you may say 'Why give it a favorable review and then say the other song is better?' I say this as no slight to the band in any way. It is to show that the band has a great catalog of songs that should be given a listen and appreciated!
If you are looking for a solid great sounding band with a feel for interesting arrangement... look no further... you have found, ANBARIC!
