The second album from this unsigned hard rocking act from Seattle picks up right where they left off with the their debut album GlassHammer (soon to be re-released). With a 70s sound that reflect the styles of Nugent, AC/DC, Van Halen, Foghat, Frank Zappa, and Judas Priest. Ex-HurricaneJane guitarist David Tab and studio drummer Joe Espinoza spent June and July 2004 laying tracks for this album. The sound they captured is dynamic and full. 'When recording we hit the tape pretty hard, Joe's drums are fully miked in the wood drum booth and my guitar cabinet is another room where the volume can swell. We like to lay it down loud getting nasty and wicked, other times we like to get nastier and wickeder opening your mind while allowing the under groove to develop and ride upon a secondary relaxed modality.' When asked about the sound production David said, 'We have this kick-ass analog console from the eighties that sounds real tight the more you push the micpres. For this album we used a couple of ELab Distressors all over the place. Cymbals, bass, all the vocals and even the mixdown were run through them. I mean the studio gear and soundproof rooms are sweet and all, but if the performance is bad who wants to listen to it? If we are not having a good time making the music I would not expect you to have a good time listening. We look for the vibe and feel of the musical performance as one of the primary foundations of our sound.' Chucky G Digitimes Review.
