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.
