COMMENTS:
Speak Volumes does exactly that. This is explosive hard rock action out of newcomers Old James. The Canadian three-piece harken back to the late 70s and early 80s with a flair for Van Halen and Y&T. The production is the perfect backdrop for hard hitting skinsman Chris Stephenson, who compliments his brother Brian's vocals and rigid bass-buzz. Andy Thompson's rhythm burns it up, placing emphasis on blues chops and driving riffs. It's elementary, (K)eep (I)t (S)imple (S)tupid and elevates the organic and natural flavors of feel good rock 'n roll. This band is one to watch.
RECOMMENDED FOR FANS OF:
Van Halen and Y&T
