ONE HIT WONDER: Where's the World? CD Long Beach legends. Musicians of Vandals, No Doubt, Pennywise, Bloodshot. Check samples.
Not even one hit wonders…This was released on Food For Thought which was a Music for Nations subsidiary. Great stuff, but it was not promoted properly. A wholesome, fun-loving punk band, One Hit Wonder uses Long Beach, CA, as their focal point for playing. Dan Root, who provides lead guitar and vocals, previously played guitar for the Vandals in the movie Dudes. Chris Web, drummer formerly with No Doubt, also plays for Wax Apple. Randy Bradbury, bass player on One Hit Wonder's first two albums, left to play with Pennywise but returns occasionally to play with the band. Bradbury was replaced with Daniel Gadberry. Original guitarist Trey Pangborn was replaced with Ray "Bones" Rodriguez. Originally a pro-skater, Rodriguez switched to guitar, playing for Bloodshot and X-Members before joining One Hit Wonder.
With some formidable songwriting, this release reflected the band's growth in the direction of punk rock that is hard-driven, deliberate, and fast -- yet melodic. This resulted in One Hit Wonder being nominated for Best Punk Band for the California Music Awards
One Hit Wonder – Where's The World?
After surprising the world with their much acclaimed debut album, Evidence return with a brilliant follow, shaped in an attractive piece of hard rock. When power metal or nu metal are the trend, Evidence swims against the tide, keeping their hard rock roots well grounded, with 11 tracks that will make you travel through time back to the 80’s, still with some 90’s stuff in between. It is complicated to point out the highlights on this record since it’s very enjoyable from the first to the last second! If you are a hard rock follower then the 80’s music is still much alive in this album, if not listen to it and you’ll get the idea how good music should sound!
SCYTHE: Divorced Land CD. Complex symphonic progressive rock. Genesis, King Crimson, Marillion, Yes! Check all samples
Their music is complex symphonic progressive rock with some reminiscences to GENESIS, KING CRIMSON, MARILLION and YES. You'll probably have to hear this album for some time before you get into it. Everything is very good so a promising CD with solid musicianship and complex compositions; you'll find a diamond in the rough. One of the better releases from Germany in a long time.
In their hometown of Toronto, this bell-bottomed metal trio are royalty, cutting their début with producer Nick Blagone (Nazareth, Deep Purple) in the studio where Rush record demos. Stateside, Sea Of Green's Ozzy-meets-Oasis song writing instincts have made fans of Slipknot, several of whom attended a recent Iowa show. The band's marriage of ethereal prettiness and rusty-machine churn riffs just might make the Adidas-and-eyebrow ring set rethink its rage.
The allure comes in the posturing, the way Sea of Green says, "We know what we sound like and that's just the way it is." There's no pretence, no hiding the origins of the sound. Just a celebration of the primal desire to play some really heavy tuneage. Great driving music. If sheer joy means anything to you, perhaps this disc might be of interest.

great performance by Sicks Daze in their fourth work. The band plays dynamic stoner rock n'roll and out of their six new songs spouts an explosive, impressive music which is characterized by the massive and dirty sound, and by modern expression. And this second feature is what makes their difference from the rest stoner bands: they don't deliberately try to create a 70's sound, but they sound modern and contemporary. Their rock n'roll repertoire is soaked in Hellacopters, Fu Manchu, Entombed and Motorhead elements, something that makes their material especially interesting. Their vocals have a brutal tone, so that all their features have something relatively unique, something that honours them and gives them their own identity.

STAR PERIOD STAR: 1 st, debut, S/T CD. Real Prog: King Crimson, Voivod, Deus, Big Black. Check samples
Exquisite as an unexpected drop of rain on parched lips... look, there's always really good CDs coming our way here, but some stuff just comes from another dimension, it shines - don't ask why or how. Explain this: Star Period Star have made an album that could be the best one that King Crimson never made, yet it sounds totally bafflingly contemporary. Maybe its more than just production values, maybe its the quality of the air peculiar to this decade... this is gloriously in-your-room without being artificially low-fi; fat rich guitars, dirty yet coherent from the buzzing lead guitar to the bounding bass, and they weave in and out with easy complexity. Never mind the cleverness, feel the warmth - this is a musician's exercise, the crafting is a means to an end, and the end is this dangerous, moody anxiety attack of an atmosphere, delightfully dissonant but never random, building up to teeth-grinding tension... there's a few of Voivod's favorite angst-ridden chords in there. Pavement would kill for this sound... bloody hell, people into Firehose would love this, not to mention Deus, Dazzling Killmen - brief moments of Big Black...
