Lords Of Falconry
First of all, it would pretty bad form not to mention how awesome this band's name is. Lords Of Falconry itself conjures up visions of a band with a predisposition for something of the psyche-rock variety - and this is pretty much what they deliver. ‘Doomsday Legislation’ is all banshee wails, bass warbles and distorted riffs that tear right through your ears in a tripped-out barrage of pure rock & roll power. Throughout the eight tracks on this self-titled album, subtlety is probably not a word you’ll be using much. This is all about massive fuzzy guitars that envelop the head in a hazy fog of distortion, while the reverb-drenched vocals emerge slightly worse for wear. ‘Scottish Chords’ and ‘Manifest Destiny’ have some pretty nifty psychedelic-tinged solos running through them too, and by the close of the record you’ve been well and truly rocked.
