ALBUM REVIEW- THE TEN TON TINNIES - TONS OF TINS

Image
Queensland - based country-punk rockers' The Ten Ton Tinnies are a band that featured heavily on these pages back in May with "Bad Gas Travels Fast in a Small town", a fun take on town gossip, served with a hint of the band's raucous humour and hard-hitting rock. The trio will finally unleash their debut album Tons of Tins on July 31st to an army of new followers. The LP is ten songs of their unabashed humour mixed with country grooves, punk attitude and some drinking tales. Part-Time Hillbilly is a punchy opening track with plenty of guts and energy. Vocalist Luke Turley seems intent in this narrative about leaving home. He delivers with panache against a backdrop of thunderous drums and jangly guitars that feel like this could be a future hit. Down in the Country is an energetic punk song reminiscent of bands like Simple Plan if they were born in the south. An introspective lyrical style of life in the country combines to create A singalong chorus and huge pop hooks

Song Review: Alchemy Divine - I'm in a Rush

Image
Hard Rock act Alchemy Divine released the high-octane " I'm In A Rush", taken from the recent album  Crushed. The Italians are enjoying a meteoric rise with their blend of classic rock riffs and soaring vocal melodies. The band were formed in 2015 under the pseudonym Alchemy but chose to rename themselves to avoid confusion with Dire Straits cover bands. I'm in a Rush s tarts off with an energetic buzz segue into the lung-busting vocal styles of Francesca Mantovani. Her operatic palette is rich and dynamic, towering over the screeching guitar breaks of guitarist Mauri Belluzzo. The band come together in the chorus in a joyful cry of I'm in a rush. Mantovani can dictate tempo through her varying levels of tone, accompanied by the thunderous pounding of drummer Michael Kostka and the rumbling bass of Luca De Mare. Alchemy Divine seems to have the right formula with this retro roar of pure rock. Words by Anselm Anderson Alchemy Divine,  Crushed is available

THE HIGH ATE US- ZONE OF SILENCE ALBUM REVIEW

Image
Extradimensional musicians  The HighAteUs  have returned and reformed for their second full-length effort Zone Of Silence, released on June 20, 2020. The mysterious trio plays an eclectic mixture of avant-garde rock mixed with macabre humour to transport the listener to a third dimension. The band originally formed in 2002 in a little-known town in Mexico, before disappearing into an abyss. The original duo returned with a new member and an album, "Zone Of Silence" is sixteen songs of versatility, range and complexity. The self-titled opener is a burst of psychedelic rock, which begins with some type of ritual chanting to introduce the listener before the music kicks in. Distorted melodies combine with fuzzy guitars to exhibit a melodious metal song. Telephone Boof is a Frank Zappa -style ballad. The trio presents versatile range between tender vocal melodies, funky riffs and keyboard harmonies for an easy-listening track. The alternate People Pleaser arouses dancing
