Canadian metal quintet Farewell to Freeway mix hardcore, screamo, alternative, and progressive strains of metal with tight instrumental work and vocal interplay. Their unique hybrid is summed up on the band's debut full length, DEFINITIONS. In the way they shift from ferocious riffing and gruff, demonic-sounding vocals to soaring, harmony-laden melodic choruses, Farewell to Freeway can sometimes sound like different bands within the same song, but it's that very eclecticism that makes them appealing. DEFINITIONS is apt to surprise metal fans by proving that Farewell to Freeway don't necessarily adhere to definitions, and are all the better for it.
