CHROME HELMET


"Full Circle" (Sin Klub; 2006)

Reviewed by Mike SOS

Chrome Helmet's Midwestern metal slant, coupled with the group's indie rock footing, makes for an inspired 14-track release.

"Full Circle" is emblazoned with a steady stream of raw emotion, perpetuating the punk rock-meets-alt-metal stance on cuts like "No More," the downbeat stoner groove adorning "Eyes Open" and the gritty rock attack found on "The Good Rides."

Accessible enough to keep heads accustomed to a buffet of AC/DC and Buckcherry bobbing yet taking enough detours to please the discerning rock fan, Chrome Helmet's diverse influences coming together with a straight-ahead rock attitude should earn this band massive respect and a fanbase that appreciates versatile acts that play from the heart.

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.
