I had the honour of checking out a couple of
their brilliant tracks, "Sick Sick Feeling"
and "Butcher" from “The Emmeryville
“Sick Sick Feeling” possesses an edgy
intro with a driving drumbeat and infectious guitar
riffs. Raw vocals grinding out the lyrics with
a harmonious chorus.
"Cause I don't want anything, you can sell
“Butcher” has distorted contagious
guitar riffs, a poppin' drumbeat and a screaming
lead guitar break. The vocals are melodically
fired out at the pace of
today’s rat race! This tune contains a contagious
chorus that will have you singing along.
"Another day another butcher, trying to bleed
300 pounds are a modern sounding version of 60's
garage music with class and edge. They are injecting
a fresh rawness into recorded rock music of today.
This band has funk and punk shakin' with rock
crusin' out garage style. Check'em out:
