"Jagged Regrets" (Self-released; 2010)
Reviewed by Mike SOS
Erie, PA trio Sacred 13 unleash a slab of ferocious hard rock brimming with attitude on their 13-track offering "Jagged Regrets."
Double barrel guitar riffs lead this squad’s Godsmack meets Randy Rhoads-era feel of “Inferno” while a bottle of whiskey and some Hellyeah seem to be the most influential forces behind “Tomorrow.”
Despite a spotty production and slightly contrived songwriting, the pounding rhythms, gravel-throated vocals and Zakk Wylde-esque contagious riffs (“Don’t Be Afraid,” “I Don’t Care”) are a bit derivative but hit the nail on the head, exhibiting this unit’s uncanny knack to crank like nobody’s business when trying not to be commercial radio darlings a la Shinedown or Nickelback (“Lifeless”).

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.
