Genre: Hard Rock
Reviewer: Frank Hill
Shirtless, California-based cross-breed of hard rock, garage and a few punk influences. You get a sound from these guys that's gonna make then pretty popular on any local scene, but it's a little too raw and gritty for any radio out there especially with the homegrown gang choruses and a few hardcorish slurred vocals. Some swampy guitar licks are thrown in, but the searing guitars and drums on the first and last numbers really set this one on fire. If they stick to the hard rock they'll please the bigger fanset of earlier Aerosmith and Jackyl. 286 consists of Martin and Nikee Verry from Argentina, Pete Pace from New Jersey, and Pittsburgh native Adam Joad. For only $5.00, or a dolar a song, Profiled is a steal.

He secretly listens to a lot of old Country and Doo-Wop tunes and wants to start a cyberband with lead vocals by Robot Plant. He is still trying to figure out what Judas Priest meant by "paratamize you". If you read this, then he salutes you.
