Hailing from Norway, the crew formally known as P:O:B make another attempt at musical stardom as Slaves to Fashion. Knowing little about their former excursion, Crossing Over, except that it received good press (so they say), this short 4 song EP is my first experience with StF. But it is a good one.
The songs here are brief, yet packed with depth. Mostly, you'll hear a heavier side of melodic rock with a modern rock atmosphere peppered with progressive tones.
