Electric Sister has come storming out of the gate with screaming vocals, big guitar riffs, and songs that demand massive replays. Revival rock just got a huge huge shot in the arm thanks to Electric Sister’s new CD, The Lost Art of Rock & Roll.
I can hear the influence of the bands Black Sabbath, Thin Lizzy and Kiss intertwined in Electric Sister’s music. They manage to craft a bunch of cool tunes without sounding dated. Thadeus Gonzales voice kind of reminds me of Dave Grohl, after he has smoked a carton of cigarettes, and drank a fifth of whiskey (that is a good thing, in case you are wondering). His voice has that rough edge that makes the songs on The Lost Art of Rock and Roll more memorable. The twin guitar attack of Jason Lucero and Nicholas Hernandez complement’s Gonzales’s voice nicely.
While there really isn’t a bad tune in the bunch on the CD, some of my favorites include “Monster Girl”, “The Lost Art of Rock & Roll” (See Video Below), “Rock is Religion” and “City of Night”.
It has been a while since I have heard a debut from a band as strong as this one. If you check out one new band in 2011, give Electric Sister a look. The Lost Art of Rock & Roll rocks hard and does not disappoint.
Rock & Roll might be a lost art, but Electric Sister has figured it out. Don’t miss out on this crank worthy CD!
