Mustasch
The Latest Version of the Truth
Label: Regain Records

Rip snortin’ hard n’ heavy rock ‘n roll that, at times, reminds me of newer Metallica, but with much more diversity and integrity. These refined rockers have even been nominated for a Swedish Grammy!

Tantric
The End Begins
Label: Silent Majority Group

Throaty vocalist Hugo Ferreira may be the only original member remaining, but that hasn’t stopped him from taking a stab at reinvigorating the band with “a new perspective.” The result? Poppy commercial hard rock gussied up with violin and a post-grunge compassion. Some of it works well, some falls flat.

Reward
Label: Roofland Records

Melting catchy inflections of bluegrass, Americana and jam rock into a fun and furious spectacular of momentous proportions. The harmonious harmonica packs their sultry rhythms with an air of delicacy and intricacy as do the harmonic vocals.

Twisterbait
I Spy
Label: Xacca Sounds

A tasty tornadic EP of hybrid techno metal. The trio of members has the added technocratic blessing of being produced by Simon Hanson (Death In Vegas) who undoubtedly morphed this into the vision of rhythmic pulchritude that it is.

American Plague
Heart Attack
Label: Feedback Symphony Records

Hard driving, hard rocking trio serving up classic catchy heavy rock. Elements of angst and foreboding give way to campy rock.

Dead Child - Attack

Dead Child - Attack

Dead Child
Attack
Label: Touch and Go/Quarterstick Records

grooves of doom take flight from their terse, rudimentary beginnings and find fertile ground as the tonalities grow darker and more aggressive. Clean bad boy vocals spice the palette.

Glenn Patrik - Mr. Blues Jr.

Glenn Patrik
Mr. Blues Jr.
Label: Glenn P.M. Patrik

Saucy and charismatic encampments of flavorful blues. The organ and harmonica with the screaming and wailing guitar make poignant the subtle rhythmic rebuttals of this veteran bluesman.
