We had a really pleasant surprise yesterday.
Our very own Bass Viking was digging into the latest edition of BASS GUITAR magazine, issue 87.
After some time dribbling over the latest Stingrays, Matt stumbled on an amazing review of our Debut Album!
The mag rewarded ‘It’s come to this’ 5/5 and 3/5 for Bass (keep Practicing Matt lol)
Thanks Very much Guys! you can buy a copy of the magazine here: http://www.bassguitarmagazine.com/
This album from Leicester power trio SKAM is sure to please aficionados of 80′s rock and metal. With song titles like “Soliders of Rock”, “Dead from the waist down” and “The touch of death” the boys aren’t exactly shying away from their heavy metal heritage, and nor should they. What you’ve got here is 10 tracks of unapologetically muscular rock that, while maybe uncool to the NME crowd, deserves to be heard by a much wider audience. The intro to album opener”Soliders of Rock” has echoes of Priest and Dio, before the guys kick into a chugging groove with a contemporary edge. The musicianship is top notch throughout, especially Ray “Xray” Peverill’s frantic drumming and the tasty guitar work of Steve Hill. Bassist Matt Gilmore keeps things tight and solid, but gets to step out on the intro to “Massacre” with a meandering bass line that would make Geezer Butler proud. There’s no filler here, just a great album from start to finish that should appeal to any fans of melodic hard rock.
5 out of 5
