It is three o’clock in the morning. You already sport this insane hunger for a steak with loads of fries, 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, signed to Inverse Records.
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 bare bones, garage-band style concoction that will keep you in its steely grip for the full length of this decidedly short blurb. And it is this smokey, scratchy sound that is their main weapon of choice. Fired with a crunchy, totally energetic and somewhat retro, grungy Heavy Rock, infused with #metal at many points of the performance that will shame many a #metal band out there. To spruce it up, the band sometimes takes sudden forays in progressive or even doomish 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 platina all over the record 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.
