Three more great reviews of "Banquet for a Starving Dog" Oct. 9, 2011
Review of "Banquet for a Starving Dog" by Gus Griesinger of Backstage Axxess
Queens, New York's own Eve to Adam's third (3rd) studio release is titled “Banquet for a Starving Dog.” The CD was produced by Paul Lani and released by 3 for 5 Entertainment Group.
The hard and melodic “Run Your Mouth” is the leadoff track and was the first single released. Gaurav Bali dishes out a catchy hook in this one. Alex Sassaris drums lay the foundation on “My Vanity.” His brother Taki’s vocals are a perfect complement and he just plainly sings his ass of on this song. "Fault Line” has an angered tempo and the vocals are delivered with urgency. The rhythm section of Alex Sassaris and Eric Bergmann take this song where it needs to go.
Bali’s picking and guitar work is the highlight of “In a Hurry.” I love the band's harmonies on the chorus and this may be my favorite track on the CD. I also love the heartfelt “Banquet for a Starving Dog.” The song encompasses everything. It has great guitar work, consistent rhythm, and a combination of melodic and gritty vocals when needed. Producer Lani adds piano on “Stay” and the ballad “Getting Weird Without You.”
The up-tempo “Little Says” keeps the momentum and flow of the CD going with a scorching guitar solo by Bali. “Reach” is another favorite of mine and I could see this being their second single. The song embodies inspiration.
This CD is one of the more pleasant releases of 2011. If you’re looking for something different, and that diamond in the rough, then this is the release for you!
We are honored and excited to announce that EVE TO ADAM will be doing K-Rock's FALL BALL with STAIND, FINGER ELEVEN and BURN HALO on Sat. Oct. 1 at the Utica Memorial Auditorium- More details to follow on our Facebook Tour Tab...You don't want to miss this one!!!

The countdown has begun: ETA'S new album, Banquet for a Starving Dog, will be available in less than a week on September 13th!

"For months we've been talking about how cool it's gonna be after the record comes out and the fans know the new material by heart..." says Gaurav Bali. "We're all really looking forward to hearing the new songs sung back to us at the shows..." The guys have a break from their tour with Saving Abel and Candlelight Red and have been playing their own headlining shows as well as dates with HURT. They'll rejoin the Saving Abel/Candlelight Red tour later in the month in Texas for a few more shows and then continue to tour in support of Banquet for a Starving Dog thru the remainder of 2011.
