Musing on Music - Centerlink
Centerlink grabbed me with the opening riffs of "Distant Voices". It has that schmarmy groove of early Hollywood hair metal. But the good hair metal. The guitars are steady and the bass is heavy. Parky, lead singer, has shades of James Hetfield but with a Vince Neil sneer. It's a deeper heavier vocal than Neil, but definitely channels the wickedness. "Distant Voices" reminds me of Motley Crue when Motley Crue were good and heavy. This three piece hails from Boston and have been together since 2006. Rounding out Centerlink are Jon Carota on bass Billy K. I predict more damn groovilicious music from Centerlink!
LIFE OF AGONY A Place Where There's No More Pain Napalm Records Release: 28 April 2017
I'm a long time Life of Agony fan. They are "locals". I've seen them live in Brooklyn (although, I've seen them live more in Germany). They are a solid heavy metal band. The new album on Napalm Records is wicked groovilicious. Yes, I'm biased. But Life of Agony's A Place Where's No More Pain is gobsmackingly amazing.
The songs are harsh; I mean they are like a punch to the gut. The feels. Zomg the feels. The lyrics just make you go, 'God Damn!' (said in Sweet D's voice). There is so much to headbang or pole dance (whatever you predilection).
'Dead Speak Kindly' and 'A New Low' puts me in the mind of Alice in Chains. Ted Jensen's fingerprints are all in this pie. He worked with Alice in Chains and you can tell. This is a good thing as you are familiar with the overall tone of the music.
