They aren't necessarily new, but they are ass kickin' great! I really have chalked up today's music as being full of nothing but fluff and bitch slaps to the music industry, however, from time to time a band comes along and...shakes things up a bit and I am one who takes notice of such things. BEHOLD: AIRBOURNE! Australia's newest export. These guys have a sound that is currently lacking in severe quantities today. I've got a chance to hear more of their material and it totally rocks! But hey, don't take my word for it, see and hear for yourselves:
Anytime you can put Lemmy from Motorhead in the driver's seat(literally in this case) you will definitely get my attention and ever so eager ear. These guys evoke memories of a very young Metallica with the "no polish, just in your face" approach to Heavy Metal. Take a gander at this:
Too Much, Too Young, Too Fast
I have made an endorsement in the past, it's a trend I may just continue to help quelch my chronic complaints of today's music. Fuck you Kurt Cobain, you didn't completely polish off Heavy Metal...and it's making a come back, like it or not.
