In many reviews Attalus is compared to bands such as Thrice, House of Heroes, and Emery. They are an alternative rock band out of Raleigh, NC. Their debut album The Greater Tide is self recorded but has great quality for a "homemade" album. The music is good and the lyrical content is great as well. My favorite song of the EP is The Rich And The Poor, which has a swing feel to it.

They have since released a new full length concept album titled Post Tenebras Lux (after darkness, light) where they further sharpen their sound and the music quality gets a lot cleaner. If you like the EP I definitely recommend getting the full length as well. I expect to see bigger and better things for this band in the future.
