Ghost Cult Magazine Review Roundup – October ’22

Posted by

Hello, you know the drill by now – here is the latest batch of reviews I have written for the rock and metal website Ghost Cult Magazine.

Pistols At Dawn – Ascension

First up is Pistols At Dawn, an alternative influenced hard rock group from Atlanta. Ascension is a promising if patchy collection of grunge influenced rock with heavy grooves and catchy choruses that fans of Shinedown and Disturbed will like.

The Dangerous Summer – Coming Home

Maryland band The Dangerous Summer are next, with their sixth album Coming Home. It is an atmospheric mix of alt rock, emo and pop punk – whose sombre tone and emotional lyrics weigh heavy by the end.

Tyler Bryant and The Shakedown – Shake The Roots

Shake The Roots is Tyler Bryant and The Shakedown‘s fifth album, and their first on their own label. It is a well crafted record of blues, roots and classic rock that is among the best the genre has to offer this year. The happy chorus and southern twang of ‘Bare Bones’ is a good taster.

Clutch – Sunrise on Slaughter Beach

It seems that Clutch do not make bad albums and their new one Sunrise on Slaughter Beach follows this trend. It is their 13th record and full of beefy riffs, emphatic choruses and clever lyrics done in psychedelia, stoner, and Hard Rock styles.

Monster Truck – Warriors

The deceptively southern sounding yet Canadian four piece Monster Truck have played a blinder with new album Warriors. It is an effervescent display of chunky southern rock awash with boogie friendly melodies and empathic choruses. They know what they are doing and they do it well.
