GROOVE-LADEN, STRAIGHT-FORWARD HARD ROCK!
This is another delightful slab of hard rock that passed my way, largely by accident. Front-man Myron was one of the vocalists of now defunct Workhorse Movement (who's release, Sons Of The Pioneers met with mixed reviews at the time), and I originally didn't have huge hopes for this album, but was drawn to it nonetheless. In fact, all the members except the drummer were in TWM, but don't let that sway you, as much on this album has nothing in common with that band; except Myron's vocals which are rather distinctive. And, I have to say, this album is well worth the money.
Some tracks start off very much like Monster Magnet songs (such as "Crop Circles"), before reaching back into the straight-forward rock.
Black Sabbath: you can hear their influence in the riffs on this album, as well as influences such as Led Zepplin, Hendrix, and a bit of Queens Of The Stone Age, too. Largely a less-stoned Stoner album (if that makes sense), but more fairly, this is just an excellent hard rock album. Different from everything else that's kicking about the scene at the moment, it's a breath of fresh air in the NWOAHM-infested scene. Unpretentious, uplifting and overall a very satisfying album. Would be an excellent summer soundtrack.
