Admiral Sir Cloudesley Shovell 7”
(Rise Above Records RISE7/123)
From Aural Innovations #42 (May 2011)
This is a damn cool new UK band. The 7” features two tracks, and the band recommends you try playing them at 33RPM even though they are supposed to be played at 45RPM. One of the tracks for sure sounds better at 33RPM! Return to Zero starts the A side and reminds me of some of the early 80s NWOBHM stuff in its sound. The sound production is really cool and the lead guitar mixed in a very cool way. This track really rocks out at the end. Side B is Day to Day. It kicks in straight off with some ripping guitar and another killer guitar riff. That is a great song. I really look forward to hearing the band’s first full length.
