Th3 Climb is a Rock band from Barcelona, with members from Italy, Iran and Brazil. This 'coming together' of musical styles and backgrounds has clearly helped them to create their own sound, taking the 'Post Grunge' American Rock sound (think 3 Doors Down, Hinder, Creed, Three Days Grace, and Finger Eleven) as a template, but adding plenty of their own flavour, helping them to stand out from the crowd.

My band played a show with Th3 Climb in Cerdanyola in September, and they were kind enough to give me a copy of their new CD. I really enjoyed their set, and could see that they were a tight live band and genuinely very good musicians. They were also lovely people and an absolute pleasure to work with, which counts for a lot in this game.

Illusion Of Your Life was originally released in September 2016, and the band have been working hard to promote it over the last year or so. It's their first record, and although it's a little rough around the edges, nicely demonstrates their ability to pen a catchy song. The production has a live feel to it, which

Admittedly, some of the English in the lyrics could do with a little work, as occasionally they can be a little confusing. Having said that, these guys speak several languages, which is highly impressive, so a little imperfection can be forgiven. Besides, lead vocalist, Lyca, conveys plenty of passion and emotion in his performance which can transcend any language barrier.

Musically, their sound is quite commercial without compromising any of their integrity as writers and performers. Songs like If I Could and So Far have a radio friendly quality, and prove that Th3 Climb know how to pen a catchy tune.

Illusion Of Your Life is a raw, honest record from an excellent live band that showcases both their talent and potential. They're heading in the right direction to become something really special.
