Did I detect a little Voss in the vocals?! Sounds pretty good to me!

I have it and alas it is a cdr... In a jewel case. Folded once front sleeve with band photos and thank you's. It is good quality though and the disc itself has a glossy "sticker", not printed on the cd.

 

The music of course is righteous!

Review from sleazeroxx.com (by Terry Martinson):

 

I must say I was rather pleased and still am, at stumbling upon this little known and unfortunately highly unsearchable named band Undone and their debut EP Words From An Innocent Man.

 

The band of twenty somethings (and under) hails from Stockholm, Sweden which of late seems to be a spawning ground for the new wave of glam/sleaze/hard rock that was Sunset Strip’s staple some 30 years ago and I for one will not nay say in the least. Undone have had a few line-up changes over the few years that they have been together as a band. They did release a song/video with a different singer, but I am rather fond of what Jace Ivy is bringing to the band, his voice fits them well and is perfect for the genre, full of raw emotion and strained just enough that you feel he is tearing himself apart telling you his tales. Also of note is a new bass player, Izzy Von Scarecrow, very competent and who fits the sleaze rock image to a “t”, and who upon a little digging, is a rather popular young man on the internet. Jerry Kag on drums — which you will see in their videos has all the staple drum moves down — is more than capable of backing any band and the rather impressive guitarist Van Noice rounds out the current line-up.

The Words From An Innocent Man EP is a very competently played and solidly performed five tracks. The opening uptempo rocker “Blackout” is a fantastic homage to what I am sure a number of us are familiar with and what Dave Attell affectionately calls “Time Traveling”. “Fortune & Fame” is another in your face rocker followed by the slower tempo’d “Words From An Innocent Man”. You should certainly check out the acoustic rendition the band has put together (see below) as it is very nice indeed. “Betrayed” is a sleazy hard rocker for the heart broken and rounding off the EP is the tale of addiction in “Sweet Cyanide.”

Undone are a promising young band with diverse and talented members. If you are a fan of good old no holds barred sleaze rock n’ roll, with catchy rhythms, artfully played leads, gang vocals galore and a good smattering of cowbell, than Undone will be a band you will wish to follow. The influences they state and that you will more than likely pick up on as you listen are from the staple Guns (LA and Roses) to Motley Crue to Vains Of Jenna to Skid Row to Backyard Babies… I am looking forward to what they may do next as the EP is a regular spin in my system.

    • Another one I'm sure I've gone on about in the past, but apparently no thread yet.  He doesn't seem to make a lot of music, but when he does it is awesome. Such as this... Paul Bartolome     -    Reflections, Pt.1 1    .    Fractures (feat. Dave Escamilla) 2    .    Anxiety (U Just Don't Get It) 3    .    While We're Still Young 4    .    Burn It Down (feat. David Bartolome) 5    .    Hypocrite   Easily one of the best songs of the year so far-       From the previously very awesome 'Screaming through the radio' EP-  
    • I know I've posted about this hombre several times before, but apparently not in his own thread. This must change as I find him to be so awesome but no one seems to acknowledge his existence. Not just here, but his youtube channel and reach seems to be so small. Crazy for someone who produces bone crunching quality on a madly consistent basis.  Eric Dalton     -    Playing Favorites (2022) 1    .    Calling Card 2    .    Oblivion 3    .    Head in the Clouds 4    .    X My Heart 5    .    Infection 6    .    My Demons 7    .    Solace 8    .    A Part of Me 9    .    Without You 10    .    Deception     Sorry, I know I've posted this before, but his youtube channel features all three of his (excellent) albums in full if interest permits. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCb2I3-4_UvFnWWTcXBBLPYA  
    • Interesting what bands catch on this forum and the ones that don't. To me, this is a pretty good band and I'm a bit surprised, on a forum where bands like Shiraz Lane and Bad City are appreciated, there seems to be no interest in these guys. Good band that does, for whatever reason, remind me of the likes of the aforementioned Bad City.  There's a bit of hit and miss about the debut and it's far from perfect, but a pretty cool band worthy of mention and interest on a forum such as this.  Anyway, this was one of my favourites of the album- For die-hards, I stumbled across this non-album track.  
    • New video for 'I Will Be Stronger' feat. Joel Hoekstra.    
    • Very nice piece of modern rock on offer here. Lot to like on this one.  Fame on Fire     -    Welcome to the Chaos 1    .    Intro 2    .    Welcome to the Chaos (feat. Spencer Charnas of Ice Nine Kills) 3    .    Ketamine 4    .    Cut Throat 5    .    Emo Shit (feat. Kody Lavigne) 6    .    Lost In Doubt 7    .    Robbery 8    .    Signs 9    .    Plastic Heart 10    .    Rotting Away 11    .    Back Then 12    .    Jaded 13    .    Dead or Alive      
    • Welcome, album of the year? Love this project with vigour. I snuck 'Saturday' on the playlist I put on with the kids in the car, lol. Can't wait to hear any of the songs I haven't already heard and showered in love from this. 
    • Did anyone notice these guys released another new album?  As expected, it's pretty weak and more proof of their solid decline.  HOWEVER!  There is actually a good song on it. It's only one, but I kind of clapped and cheered when I heard this. I used to love these guys so much, and still love the albums I always loved from these guys but it's been some barren years. It was good to hear them do what they used to do with great ease.      
    • Couple of okay songs, but otherwise as expected above. No surprises, exactly what you'd expect from these guys in 2022.     
    • Not every song is a hit, but another pretty decent one mini-album. I like some of the gear on this one.  Villain of the Story     -    Divided 1    .    Never Again 2    .    Jester 3    .    Karma 4    .    Under My Skin 5    .    Losing Control 6    .    Wrong 7    .    Don't Go 8    .    Divided    
    • Not sure if folk know, but they got back together and released an EP this year. Anberlin     -    Silverline 1    .    Two Graves 2    .    Nothing Lost 3    .    Body Language 4    .    Asking 5    .    Circles It's not amazing, but I do really like this song from it-
