We rode the line between classic and modern” – Rich Mouser

  1. I’m looking forward to this band’s album release very much. There’s “teaser” videos on YouTube and from what I’ve heard from those videos, this is going to be an incredible album. The music has a big Alice In Chains vibe, very dark sounding and intense. And you can hear a slight Chris Cornell influence in Robbie’s vocals. Joe is an amazing guitarist. TMS did a top 5 underrated guitarists a couple of seasons ago. Joe would have been on my list.
