It is three o’clock in the morning. You already sport this insane hunger for a steak with loads of fries, and with Bourbon to go. But at the same time, you feel an inhuman urge to go a-moshing for a while to end the party in style.
Well, food can wait.
For the rest, all you’ll need to do is to fetch Bourbon Scenes, the newest EP of the Finnish Rock and Metal band Rattleplague.
Just go ahead, pop in the disc and let ‘er roar. And I guarantee you that you will get both: The red meat and a moshing session you won’t forget. But perhaps you should eat your food after the music. Just a thought.
Because these guys fucking rock on every track of this EP!
Bourbon Scenes is a somewhat barebone, garage-band-style concoction that will keep you in its steely grip for the full length of this decidedly short blurb. They insert themselves well into this relatively new gaggle of Heavy Rock bands like Last Bullet or Bear Bone Company. Those, who deliver their rock with a refreshing grit, and an abandon that will make you listen twice. And then some.
It is this smokey, scratchy sound that serves as their main weapon of choice. Fired off with a crunchy, totally energetic, and somewhat retro, grungy Heavy Rock style. And infused with metal at many points of the performance that will shame many a trve metal band out there.
To spruce it all up, the band sometimes takes sudden forays in progressive or even doom-laden terrain. Albeit, whatever short they may be. Then add some stellar solos to some of that, and ready is your toxic mix.
So, in essence, you got that tasty, old grime and noble corrosion all over the record. The one that will keep your interest levels up, and your headbanging gene firing until you can no more.
Happy moshing! And don’t forget that food later. You’re gonna need it.
