I’m not going to lie to you and say that I’ve been in the court with these guys in Saliva for years now because that would be lying and well, to be brutally honest I just never got around to following them based on all the other things that I was listening to at the time. Of course, by saying that I should add that I did like a few choice tracks that made their way to the radio waves and that there online medium stuff but that was it. After being asked to help support a tour run though I decided that I would listen a little more and was happy to learn about a brand-new single hitting the streaming services – here now are some quick thoughts about “Lose Yourself” as done by Saliva.
In case you didn’t know this, the song “Lose Yourself” is actually a cover of the Rap artist Eminem and it was a tune that got some SERIOUS airplay from his soundtrack to the film “8 Mile”. It’s a powerful track as a Rap and I was quite intrigued to hear how it transferred as a Rock track. Singer Bobby Amaru not only delivers on all fronts with it by paying proper respect to its original flow, but also by branding it as a possible signature tune in the upcoming Saliva show repertoire. The music is on point but since they keep mostly to the groove of the original there is not a whole lot of flair with the exception of some louder guitar at points. Founding member Wayne Swinny locks it in on the axe. Overall, I enjoyed this and listened two or three times before penning these thoughts. It’s safe to say that if you were a fan of Saliva already that you will like it but if you are someone like me who is guilty of not being as supportive as I could have, then you will likely find it appealing as well. The band is currently between labels and at the time of this writing I am unaware of when more music is coming. If another single makes an appearance you can count on my throwing some thoughts together about it. Best of luck to Saliva on bringing some joy to their worldwide fans.
