On Top are a band from Pennsylvania that plays a mixture of hard rock and metal and this is a review of their 2014 ep "Top To Bottom" which was released by HPGD Productions.
Powerful sounding bass lines start of the ep before going into a melodic hard rock/metal direction along with some vocals that h ave a more aggressive bite than the guitars and guitar solos and leads are added in at times, the music on the ep has a mixture of 70's and 80's metal in the sound but with a different vocal approach.
On the other tracks the band continues their mixture of hard rock and metal with some of the music having a mid 80's to early 90's hair metal vibe but without the power ballads and the sound reminds me of the last years of that genre before grunge took over and the band also utilizes back up vocals at times and on of the tracks has a sound that reminds me of a cross between Rage Against The Machine and pop metal.
On Top update the more hard rock orientated side of metal with their music while also having an old school and retro vibe throughout the tracks, the production is very professional sounding and the lyrics cover everyday themes.
In my opinion On Top are a very great sounding mixture of hard rock and heavy metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "No Shame" and "Dont Go". 8 out of 10.
