"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.

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.
