"Apparitions" (Self-produced; 2010)

Reviewed by R. Scott Bolton

"Apparitions" Is classic hard rock with addictive riffs that stick in your head long after the songs are over. As you may have guessed from the title, the lyrics and themes revolve around zombies, the undead, etcetera.

This is a low-budget recording and the production is a little underwhelming, including vocals that are drenched in echo. Still, overall, this is a pretty entertaining record with those riffs drawing you back again and again.

Unfortunately, this band is pretty hard to find out there. For some reason, they have avoided the ease of Social Media and opted to stay off the radar (at least as far as I can tell). If that changes, I'll be sure and post that information here. (And, by the way, when I speak of "band" here, I basically mean its driving force, Mr. James Owen).

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.
