Present me is happy to announce that past me lead me right onto a sweet Classic Psychedelic Prog Rock band. Today's feature track will probably show a bit of all that genre mix. I can hear all kinds of Rock influences on it, making it a nice well rounded listen.
Give The Evils of Rock and Roll its listen.
Listening to the album whole, initially I thought this track didn't fit. A little too dark when compared to the previously heard tracks; a bit too passionately evil.
It's genius is what it is. Alone it's a decent track.. But what they did was play music off itself while using charismatic vocals to pass a hook through your ears and keep you for longer.
And then add all those great little elements like the keyboard solo at 3:39, or the false ending, all making it that much better.
Cheat the Gallows follows a similarly influenced feel as The Evils of Rock and Roll, but I insist that track is better after actually hearing its preceding tracks. Especially Money, It's Pure Evil and its a happy sound.
The rest of the album isn't all as dark. I can hear the Psychedelic influences about as often as the Hard Rock/Early Metal ones. Being as the influences sound vintage, I might have a positive bias. They definitely sound modern though.
It's not a perfect album, and I find it starts getting a bit boring near the end. The final track will make those few tracks worth it though. It'd be worth it to give it a listen if today's track caught your ear.
