Company Band
Sign Here, Here, and Here
Label: Venture Capital Records

A four song aperitif to announce the formation of this sludge/stoner rock super-group. They are Neil Fallon (Clutch), Jess Margera (CKY), James Rota (Fireball Ministry), Jason Diamond (Puny Human) and Dave Bone. Because of Fallon‘s distinct vocals, it sounds a bit like Clutch. Time will tell what their tongue in cheek corporate sound evolves into.

Two extremely equipped psychedelic musicians from Milwaukee utilize their gaggle of instruments to produce a fascinating albeit quirky electronic soundscape repertoire with rooms and areas to float, groove, slide.

Label: Medicated G Records

Wow! 30 tracks of hilarious musical debauchery and mayhem. Madison brews them eclectic and this is right up there. Careening from poppy punk to country then retro electronica plus various other tangents du jour, all with a squinter of a rainbow in their eyes…

Two guitars and a drummer from St. Paul blasting out plush, post-grunge, groovy hard rock complimented with multiple melodic vocals and warm fuzzy tones. This band sounds better all the time!

Classic rock with a metal tinged sound, look, style and presentation. They are proficient in their musicianship; the band output is just stuck in time while wading through prolific amounts cheese and cliché’s.

Cycle Of Pain
Label: Reform Records

Black Label Society bassist exhibits his latest exploits that fall not far from the tree. Sludgy, grungy metal admittedly grown from the Black Sabbath side of heavy music but also reminding me of Soundgarden at times. Too many musical cameos to mention.

Such entrancing dusky vocals and memorable folk anthems lose nothing in their live format. In fact, because of today’s live production values, these songs may sound better than their studio originals! What a great selection of work and wonderful performance.
