|Rebecca Lou Armstrong of Stella Blackrose|
I first wrote about the band several years back when they had self recorded some excellent raw tracks in their rehearsal studio with something like two mics. I loved those tracks very much because the pure intensity shined through the basic recordings in a way that I just knew this band has some powerful mojo.
The band searched for and found a producer, but in my opinion, ended up with some over produced tracks that lost that edge compared to when they were making recordings on their own. Oh well, it's happened to the best of 'em. But the band has proven staying power. They are still at it and have not lost that raw energy that lovers of hard rock should dig. Enjoy! GC
It's only my opinion, but this first track below is one of those early recordings that I referred to as being overlyproduced. BUT, it does still totally rock. My gut is it would be great if the band re-released their basement tapes and strove to make other more raw recordings like them. The pure raw intensity of the group shined bright on those early self made demos. The band has that killer sound live. Bottled lighting! A real rock band!
