"Wealth of the Disease" (Self-released; 2007)

Reviewed by Mike SOS

Long Island metal squad Dormitory Effect throw down a fiery six-track release with "Wealth of the Disease."

Imagine an amped-up version of Heart or Pat Benatar gone nu metal as an indicator of what to expect by this all-female troupe, as tracks like "Let This Cease" and "Bide My Time" contain stunning vocal performances backed by a rhythm section that lays out massive grooves. 

Juxtaposing unrefined power and subtle grace, Dormitory Effect provides an intense listening experience that will not disappoint hard rock fans that demand substance.

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.
