"Three Left" (Self-produced; 2015)

Reviewed by R. Scott Bolton

Three Left's self-titled EP is six tracks of solid hard rock, backed with impressive songwriting and catchy melodies that are more subtle rather than being sticky sweet.

The band's sound is hard rock with a modern sound. The guitars are heavy and just a little bit dirty. The rhythm section keeps things moving at all times and the vocals are powerful and strong and loaded with emotion at the same time. In fact, they remind me a bit of a cross between Twisted Sister's Dee Snider and Metallica's James Hetfield -- not a bad combo.

All of the songs are meaty rockers (my favorites were "Stand Up" and "Face Turned Black), with the exception of the last track, "Who Wants to Be Afraid," in which the band tones it down a bit, delivering a slower pace but a song just as strong as the others.

Overall, "Three Left," the EP does exactly what an EP should do: Makes you want to hear more. I've heard rumblings that the band is about to start, or has started, recording their next CD and I, for one, can't wait to hear it.

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.
