[fbshare type=”button”] [twitter style=”vertical” float=”left”] From the stomping guitar riffs and claustrophobic vocals on the opening track “K.M.A”, you quickly get the impression that you’re in for a rocket ride on a rhythmic roller-coaster.
Ghosts Of Eden are a powerhouse unit that pump vigor into every note, leaving you, the listener breathless… And you’ve only heard the opening track of their latest album, “Something (Kinetic)”!
Straight into the second track, “Dear Mary”, your suspicions are confirmed, Ghosts Of Eden are never gonna let the rhythm slip. Benny on drums, Miles on bass and Tom on rhythm guitar, ride those roller-coaster rails with a vengeance. Up, down inside and around every beat, while Rich riffs like a demon possessed.
Track three, which is entitled “Halo”, which might lead you to believe you’re in for a more “softer” tune.So wrong. You see Tom won’t let up, because he can’t. His got the grunge deeply buried into his potent vocal chords and it’s just shouting to get out at you. So even when the band lay back just a little you stay turned on.
Up comes “Sell My Skin”, the forth track on the album, and I’m thinking, these boys have gotta let go, because I’m sweating it under these headphones and my heart’s pumping much too fast to the rhythms embedded in this cd. In fact the boys lay back just a little on the sound, but still hold down one helluva beat. Again it’s Tom who won’t let up. The growling voice syndrome races all around your head and right down to your gut. Powerful stuff from a great band who are anxious to get on top.
“Unraveled” is track five and most definitely my favorite. Hurtling rhythms with supercharged tempo changes, acoustic guitar bridges and screaming guitar riffs, all masterfully binded together with Tom’s powerful vocal delivery. Simply a “must have” track for all modern rockers.
Ghosts Of Eden close down the album with “In Motion”, and just to confirm that they won’t let up…ever. They turn on the power to peak level with Miles’s bass doing some solid groundwork in tandem with drummer Benny. It goes without saying that lead guitarist, Rich stays right up there with the rest of the band, while Tom’s vocals, as usual, rake up the final accolades.
“Something Kinetic” is a great album, born from traditional ’90’s powerhouse rock, but absolutely modern in it’s technical delivery and production. Don’t miss up on this one. Highly recommended.
