"Soal" (Self-produced; 2005)
Reviewed by Mike SOS
Soal is a Long Island based quartet whose rock'n'roll swagger is evident from the opening chords of the appropriately titled "Rockstar," yet there's more that this three track release offers.
Soal gets a little funky on "Silent Freak" without sacrificing heaviness, and even goes epic on "Break the Day" with bursts of creative energy which keep the track from getting long-winded. Mixing the disjointed melodics of 36 Crazyfists and Deftones with a dark hard rock attack (a la Godsmack and Soil) Soal has all the ingredients to fit into today's rock broad and ever-changing landscape.

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.
