Famous Underground review

 

Solid stuff for fans of the heavy-edged end of the hard rock spectrum, and Walsh sounds as great as ever.

 

Upcoming reviews include:

Trivium: "In Waves"

Juliet's Vice: "D.G.A.F."

Zombie Shaker Box: "Encrypted"

Toby Hitchcock: "Mercury's Down"

Loved the Revolver stuff, and it looks like they brought 'Dead Weight' with them to the new album. Not sure if it's re-recorded or if it's the original....but it's a pretty kick ass tune. Always loved this dude's vox......will definitely check out the whole thing! Thanks for the review Mark!

If you liked Revolver, you'll definitely like Famous Underground; it's really just a new Revolver album under a different name. And yeah, Walsh definitely has a great hard rock/metal voice. There are some folks on the boards here that really should give this album a chance. As I said in my review, it's not going to have widespread appeal, but fans of heavy hard rock should find plenty to enjoy.

Heard this the other day. Not amazing by any means, but not bad at all really. The dude does have a good voice and suits this modern stuff too, without sounding out of place.

A couple more spins and I'm not too sure about this. It's solid and consistent. But sadly, it's only consistently pretty good to average. No tracks really stand out and I couldn't really give it more than the 60% I awarded it myself. Nice effort, but there are many better modern rock bands and many better old school bands too.

    • New song 'Defiance' from the album of the same name.    
    • John says he is still in Confess as well.  This was posted on the Confess FB page about an hour ago: TO CLARIFY SOME STUFF!   Yes, i've joined forces with Crashdiet, which feels very exciting indeed. With that being said, I’m still very much a part of confess. Confess is my high school Rock'n roll band that i sang in for the past 15 years and i have no intentions of leaving or changing that. We're currently working on new music and hopefully have something new to show you guys pretty soon.   // John Elliot https://www.facebook.com/confessofsweden?mibextid=JRoKGi
    • Cool song. If ADV is strictly hired to play keys, it should be fine. 
    • Ooh, nice!  I'll have to revisit the first album. 
    • Ugh... I hate you so much. You know I hate you, right? ;} I've never seen either iteration. 
    • These are sounding pretty good.
