Greatdayforup - "Flores de Sangre"
(Small Stone Records 2005, SS-057)
From Aural Innovations #33 (March 2006)
This is some heavy duty stuff played by what sounds like some mean mother fuckers from Albany, NY. The singer has a great range of emotion in his vocal delivery and this adds a lot to the music. The band have clearly listened to some hardcore but this is more straight up "mean rock". I don't know what else to call it. It ain't stoner rock, it ain't punk rock, it ain't heavy metal. Just go for the throat 23 hours a day balls out mean rock. Give it a try if you can stand it. Oh yeah, cool artwork as well.
