Engloria is a northeastern proto-punk band that mixes elements of punk and 90’s alternative rock to create a blend of what they call a “gnarled” version of both. They began playing together in 2009 and have self produced their own EP’s and their first feature length album, Evolver. From that album, the song “White Noise” is a mellow tune that showcases the band’s versatility in contrast to their more punk rock styled songs. The more aggressive “Animal” features a harder style that shows off more of their punk rock influence. The 90’s sounding “I Don’t Care” showcases the band’s hybrid style with a little punk influence mixed with some 90’s grunge. Overall, Evolver is a solid debut album for the band. Its versatility is its best aspect, with some songs having a slower pace and some having a more aggressive style.
