Rise Up


It is quite common for bands to change members throughout their careers and, more often than not, these alterations go virtually unnoticed. That is unless of course that member is a larger-than-life front man like ex-Saliva vocalist Josey Scott. When I heard the news a few years back about Scott’s departure I was fairly certain that we had heard the end of Saliva as a band. Fast forward a few years and much to my surprise the group has a new front man, Bobby Amaru, and a brand spanking new release in Rise Up. As a longtime fan I was eager to dive into the disc and see what it had to offer.
