Speedy Canadian traditionalism
COMMENTS:
These Canadian traditionalists have been making waves over the last few years. 'Livin' Oblivion' is the band's fourth to date (in ten years) and second consecutive release for France's Listenable Records label. It's fast, furious and possesses the twin guitar melodies of the NWOTHM scene. Vocally, it's scratchy and noisy, like a strangled Ozzy. There's a bit of a stoner and doomy feel at times, but mostly just a speed spin through vintage 80s records.
RECOMMENDED FOR FANS OF:
Savage Blade, Cauldron, Enforcer
