Any Stone Temple Pilot fans out there? If so, this gnarly album is right for you. Super 400 are a new metal power trio making constantly loud jamsâ€”like The Cult, Velvet Revolver, Kings X, etc. Theyâ€™re straight outta Troy, N.Y., so they got the good suburban roots so essential to the kind of â€œteen angstâ€ behind this genre. Thereâ€™s not a lot of up-and-coming rock bands making these albums anymore, so itâ€™s our duty as Americans to support them. Wailing, screaming vocals, blasting riffs off a heavy guitar, and heavier drums. â€œItâ€™s Gonna Burstâ€ has some of the best of this kind of guitar work Iâ€™ve heard in years. And when they slow it down (just a touch) on â€œI Could Be Reborn,â€ they go back to the roots, recalling Creamâ€™s Wheels of Fire period.
Plus, there’s a chick in the band!
