"HeavySurf" (Reptile; 2007)

Reviewed by Mike SOS

Long Island quartet HeavySurf don't play in the style of Dick Dale as their name may suggest, yet this troupe of seasoned musicians exude a similar spirit and have found the middle ground between West Coast rock, homespun Americana, and muscular hard rock on their eponymous four-track offering. 

With influences that range from Led Zeppelin to Three Doors Down, tracks like "Kinsong" and "Sutured" mesh hard rock riffs, a classic rock jangle, and accessible '70s rock melodies that definitely sound finest whilst knocking a few back at the local watering hole. 

HeavySurf: Billy (Pills) Fridrich Guitar; Joe Zummo Bass; Old MacDonald Drums; Mark Zaharis Vocals, Percussion.

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.
