Hands up for all those who have yet to hear In The Shadows - thought not! It is just one of those annoyingly itchy songs, which we have been unable to escape from in the past few months of its radio and music TV domination.
Following in the footsteps of their aforementioned signature track and the hit single, Guilty; First Day Of My Life is taken from the Finish band's mega-selling, UK breakthrough album, Dead Letterst. It's a cleanly produced song with no rough edges; just mighty guitars, heavy drumming and an anthemic rock quality that will probably bulldoze any effort made available in the same week or even month of its release.
With all the recent press coverage surrounding The Rasmus, First Day Of My Life is made up of what we have come to expect from a band that looks like The Cure's offspring yet sounds as catchy as an eighties hair-metal band, which will inevitably aid The Rasmus' path to stadium success.
