CD Review Archer - Doomsday Profits

Archer

Doomsday Profits
Record Label: Duke’s Black Rose
Review by Chris Fox
December 2008

This album will make you want to break out your leather jacket and get a new tattoo.  Shredding, bluesy guitar with the classic heavy metal feel that makes everybody want to go out and buy a motorcycle.  Mixing the vocal styles of JUDAS PRIEST and guitar riffs like the great Toni Iomi, ARCHER manages to create a new resonance for an amazing old sound.

CD Review Pro-Pain - No End In Sight

Pro-Pain

No End In Sight
Record Label: Regain Records
Review by Chris Fox
December 2008

With slightly operatic vocalisms and grinding, low guitar PRO-PAIN drives through their new release “No End In Sight.” Simplicity is key with this album. The New York-based band has found an envelope of heavy grooves that act as a steady backbone for moving lyrics that are too often absent from metal. Thoughtful and complimenting, the four-piece unit knows how to articulate an entire album from beginning to end.

CD Review Sonic Syndicate - Love and Other Disaster

Sonic Syndicate

Love and Other Disaster
Record Label: Nuclear Blast America
Review by Chris Fox
December 2008

Sonic diversity is the key phrase when describing SONIC SYNDICATE’s new album. There is a little bit for every fashion of metal fan out there. This album is a ballad, a dark mellow piece, a heavy thrash song, an epic power metal shredder, and everything in between.  It is truly entertaining and refreshing to hear a band deliver such an array of style in their music. Perhaps it is because they are still searching for a “sound” or perhaps diversity IS their sound, either way this entire album will catch your attention.

CD Review The Showdown - Back Breaker

Showdown

Back Breaker
Record Label: Solid State Records
Review by Chris Fox
December 2008

Heavy. From drumming that hits on the off beats to grinding guitar and lots of squealing harmonics, THE SHOWDOWN is just heavy with their release of “Back Breaker.” These Tennessee natives stay true to their southern metal roots and supply lots of chunk that is reminiscent of bands like DEMON HUNTER with a few added tidbits. Using unique backing vocals with the grinding guitar leading the way and a thumping double kick carrying the load, these guys manage to rip your face off and hand it back to you in pieces.

CD Review The Lonely Hearts - Disaster Footage at Night

Lonely Hearts

Disaster Footage at Night
Record Label: Three Ring Records
Review by Cactus Joe
December 2008

“Disaster Footage at Night” is the second album by San Francisco folk rock duo THE LONELY HEARTS, consisting of Andre Perry and John Lindenbaum. Described as “American folk meets bedroom rock,” there is great variety on this well-produced album from the mellow to the more aggressive. Accompanied by three backing musicians, all these songs are hooky with lyrics that range from the introspective to the more storyline narrative.

Record Label: Self Released
Review by Cactus Joe
December 2008

The self-titled debut album from NYC radio host and R&B bassist JEFF FOXX (session player for CHAKA KHAN, AL JARREAU, ISAAC HAYES, and ROY AYERS) offers a pleasant and soulful musical ride. It’s a funky, smooth, creamy and delicious, take-her-home-after-the-date-for-pillow-talk album. It was produced and co-written with Bernard Belle (MICHAEL JACKSON, BOBBY BROWN).
