Newsflash: Should the Killing Volts say yes?

RockmusicRaider Newsflash - The Killing Volts - Why Should I Say Yes - Album CoverGeez, it is a long time that I have not heard that kind of groove. But here it is: A full load of grunge-flavored, intense Punk Rock hardly seen these days this side of NirvanaAnd it does my ears good after all these disks with high pitched metal that just whipped through the RockmusicRaider office floor. 

The Swiss band The Killing Volts brandishes this nonchalant, don’t-give-a-shit style that is so very important to their trade. Their decidedly short, but nevertheless juicily powerful EP Why Should I Say Yes will relentlessly drive this point home for every second of its very limited span of airplay. This is a harmonious band, aptly led by the scratchy, no-nonsense style of the vocalist and fully embedded by two guitars, bass and rumblings drums.Got hooked? Raid this some more...

Hey Satan – Hey Satan (2017) – Review

Apple Music Badge

RockmusicRaider Review - Hey Satan - Hey Satan - Album CoverLet’s hop on a time machine. Back to the rocking ’70s, where the groove ran high and times were wild. A different brand of wild, compared to today, mind you. Where scratchy lyrics and lo-fi sounds were all the rage. Then throw in some Southern Rock for good measure. Oh, and break out those jeans, will ya. You know, the ones with them wide tubes and flowers stitched onto them. That groovy enough? Not quite yet, I agree. Because now we will need some substances. Any chemical of that era will do. And loads of cigarettes with bottles of bourbon – lots of bourbon. Now we are ready to burn down this fuzzy road into the sunset where the cacti dwell and the groove lives.Got hooked? Raid this some more...

RockmusicRaider Newsflash - Tornado Kid - Hateful 10 - Album CoverIt is variety that got my attention first and their tongue-in-cheek genre description of Booze’n’Blues on their Facebook page. Then the corniness kicked in – profanity and blasphemy galore included. But that’s alright. And next came the interesting title Hateful 10. Going by the lore Tornado Kid tell us, they were so fed up with painfully re-doing their 10 tracks of musical prowess for their first full length, they started to hate it. So, they went ahead and changed the name from Cowboys of the North to the aforementioned Hateful 10 moniker. Cool story and as the Italians say: Si non è vero, è ben trovato.Got hooked?
