ANAND CLIQUE


"Click." (Orchard; 2000)

Reviewed by Snidermann

If your idea of rock is a thunderous maelstrom of heavy metal, then "Click." is right up your alley.

Right from the opening chord, "Click." produces a hard-driving, modern version of metal that is lively, fresh and always unconventional. 

Anand Clique mixes tribal rhythms and hardcore guitar and vocals into a unique combination that is truly original and is also fun to listen to. A high point is the outstanding bass guitar work - that dude is all over the neck and his talent is impressive. 

This is one talented band. I'm curious, however, as to their current status. "Click." has a copyright date of 1997 and, according to Amazon.com, was released in 2000. A quick Internet search showed nothing more recent. I hope that Anand Click is still making music - if not, that would be a great shame.

Anand Clique: Anand Bhatt - vocals; Ryba - guitar; Anthony Materino - drums; Baban - bass.

Rating Guide:

A classic. This record will kick your ass.

Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.

So-so. You've heard better.

Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.

Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
