"Nameless" (Self-produced; 2006)
Reviewed by Jeff Rogers
Cheva is self-produced or, as they call themselves, Free
Agents. With influences listed as Cannibal Corpse, Faith No More and everyone in between,
I can hear the musical diversity in each track of this five song hair-pulling EP.
Rising way above the emo crowd that the O.C. produces in such mass, Cheva should be labeled under Screamo. The vocals are really good though; Rich Lindamood produces a clean release and an aggressive vocal scream when required. The guitar sounds much like Pressure 4-5 and the drums just smash throughout. This EP has potential to capture a few fans who have lost their GPS for heavy music in Orange County, CA.
Because there are only four tracks to absorb here, I listened to this EP a few times and liked what I heard. "Nameless" kind of reminds me of the 45 rpm and when cassette singles were big. It's a small taste of something that will either turn heads or not. Regardless, this one will definitely warrant me to investigate the band a little further.
Cheva: Rich Lindamood vocals; Andy Bogert guitar; John Lunden guitar; Hector Gonzalaz bass; Jimmy Schultz drums.

A classic. This record will kick your ass.
Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.
So-so. You've heard better.
Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.
Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
