My faith in ‘music’ has just been restored! Hallelujah! Praise be to TRICORN!
In these days of ‘processed’ and ‘disposable’ music, it’s so refreshing to hear a band that just wanna kick ass and rock-out, no frills attached!
Producing a brand of heavy rock that sits somewhere between my current obsession for psych / space-rock and ‘stoner’ rock, Portsmouth four-piece TRICORN have produced an excellent album of eight songs spanning a forty-three minute duration.
It’s all about the big, chunky guitar riffs and ripping drums. The vocals are not of the ‘screamo’ / larynx shredding grunting type, but more of a throaty growl that somehow manages to stay this side of ‘melodic.’ All the tracks conform to a more standard composition with sing-a-long (shout-a-long) choruses and little unpretentious searing guitar solos.
It just ‘fits.’ Simple as that!
Good on ya, guys!!
