I first listened to ‘Eleven’ and my first impression was that they’re trying to mimic 90’s bands like Nirvana. The influence is highly present. I also have to complain about the sound quality, I believe that they’re trying to have a 90s-ish quality sound. ‘Eleven’ -while it’s not the only one- has a very familiar unoriginal tone; my first impression wasn’t in their favor.
‘TOAD’ and ‘Dear Monkey’ didn’t change my opinion much, they made it worse as I have some complains about the vocals; it sounded like the lead vocalist is trying to sound like someone else which only affects how it sounds negatively.
‘In Heaven’ sounded much better and showed some potential. I like the guitar work here. ‘Helltown’ and ‘Offtime’ sounded like those Metal bands’ old demos but I enjoyed listening to them. The last three songs would sound pretty good after some polishing.
All in All, I think I like Marvintripp and believe they have the ingredients to make something good. They just have to work on the vocals, sound quality and focus on creating their own distinctive sound.
