"The Filth & The Fury" (Self-released; 2010)

Reviewed by R. Scott Bolton

On "The Filth & The Fury," Heavy Glow sounds like a blues/rock band with a nice stoner guitar edge. It's got a great buzz sound and cuts right through you like a rusty wire.

The vocals are strong and smooth in the classic rock style and the songs are written in the contemporary blues rock style, like Bad Company or Spencer Davis, with a little psychedelia thrown in, like Jimi Hendrix. Ain't nothin' wrong with that.

There are seven tracks total here with the last two being bonus tracks from an earlier album.

Overall, "The Filth and the Fury" is a solid rock record. It may not break any new boundaries but, hell, who wants it to when it sounds this good?

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.
