BRONZE


"Bronze" (Self-released; 2009)

Reviewed by R. Scott Bolton

On their self-titled CD, Bronze (out of Denver, Colorado), deliver ten solid tracks of stoner-edged hard rock that brings to mind veteran classic hard rock bands like L.A. Guns and modern bands like Wolfmother. It's a combination that works rather well for the band.

Most of the tracks here are mid-paced rockers heavy with guitars with a low-tuned feel. Standout tracks include the simple but effective riffs of "Disrespective" and the fist-pumping anthem "Sex, Drugs and Rock and Roll." The band isn't afraid to mix things up either as the Rolling Stones-meets-Lynyrd Skynyrd "One Horse Town" proves.

For the most part, however, Bronze are content just to drive straight through you. Thankfully, they've got enough talent, both as musicians and songwriters, so that you probably won't mind.

Bronze: Andy - bass & rhythm backups; Bailey - lead vocals & guitar; Chris - lead guitar & backup backups; Joaquin - drums & lead backups.

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.
