"Hysteria" is energetic and powerful from the initial blastoff and throughout. Guitar that pulsates and crunches at the same time, the music is a hard glide, like surfing on a buzzsaw with direct lyrics and a stern vocal, somewhere between The Ramones meets Pearl Jam. Two minutes and forty-two seconds of sonic blasts, the way we like 'em.
"Sun Shines Through" slows things up into a grunge/garage band reading over solid drums and no-nonsense words and lead vocals that have an authority which sounds determined and assured. The lead guitar is spot on in an entertaining way that begs repeated spins. This might be what Black Sabbath would sound like if they started their reign in 2019...a refined and hard sound that has lots of appeal.
"Woah Oh Oh (It Takes Two To Go Around" adds some pop music to the hard rock, the band has equal dashes of irreverence with the serious, and is most impressive. Highly recommended.
