|Severely Underrated Bands|
Thank Christ For The Bomb
Released in 1970, this is almost a near flawless album that shifts through from Hendrix-esque blues freak outs to heart stoppingly beautiful emotional tales of war, this band have always amazed me.
Musically they exceed in every area, the lyrics are some of the best i have ever heard and the general atmosphere created is one of sadness/beauty.
After playing a couple of shows with Black Sabbath and having a very brief slot in the public eye with the single "Cherry Red" this band just seemed to dissapear, it came a shock to me that one when i first found out this man still gigs on a regular basis throughout the u.k despite currently fighting cancer.
I urge you to buy or just check out this band as it is a crying shame that they are not recognised.
For fans of Hendrix, Arthur Lee, Edgar Broughton Band, Jethro Tull.
Melodic Hardcore it its most basic, this is what i found Gorilla Biscuits 2006 7" to sound alot like.
The vocals here are done in such a way that the transition from hardcore shout to rough singing vocals is brilliant.
The music itself is not technical, just structured to have catchy hooks whilst retaining the hardcore element.
|3|| ||Task Force|
Voice of the Great Outdoors
One of my all time best hip hop artists, Task Force is a duo of middle aged men from London.
The beats are always fitting to the lyrics, they dont have a certain sound, they can go from dark depressive real life situations to hilarious social observations. Its just part of thier sound, highly apreciated on the U.K underground scene.
|4||This Town Needs Guns|
I suppose you could call this Math-Pop, which sounds horrible so lets forget about that for a second.
The vocals are beautiful, soft and often moving out of standard range.
Extensive use of finger tapping for both bass and guitar matched along with jazzy yet strangely primal beats which often get shifted into different time signatures and crystal clear production this band can really move you.
I would say however the album does get a little dull after about 6 or 7 songs, and will not be to everyones taste.
|5|| ||Infernal War|
A highly skilled Blackened death Metal band, combining virtuoso guitar with standard black metal blasts and vocals, this band are extremely tight and keep a good balance between the two genres throughout.
|I think four is overrated if anything.|
|the band are very local to me so i hear alot about them, i didnt think they had much coverage apart from sputnik and myspace.|
|ok maybe 4 are alot more well known than i gathered, the others are worth checking out.|
