BAD WEATHER PROJECT “Stormriders”
The main problem here is not that the band recovered the most melodic and weak side of so called “grunge” rock genre from 90’s. It’s not the melody, actually through the years I learned to be polite with other rock music genres, and I like to focus in whatever you want to call it, talent or something?
This case I hear a quite solid rock band with many musical resources and cool ideas translated in melodic tunes and hard rock roots. OK, but the problem is vocalist. Maybe he needs to work a lot in strengthen his throat and at the same time, he needs to drink a couple of cans of beer before recording a rock album. I mean, I’m not saying that it must sound brutal and satanic; this is about feeling sick, pissed off and take the microphone. That’s rock n’ roll!! Inclusive the band has a song called “Ragesong” which has good moments here and there. As aforementioned, this is a really good band that recovers old sounds from bands like Alice in Chains, Soundgarden, etc. They sound good, and all tracks have high musical skill which denotes experienced musicians. I hope to hear more about them in the future, with a new album and furious vocals. – Victor Varas
