Souls of Infinity

By Electric Mud Generator

Appropriately with a name containing the word "mud" this is a dirty throaty blues rock stab from the Leeds outfit. Six songs of blues, Led Zep riffs and Sabbath guitar. The feel is of three mates really basking in their own guitar noise and sludgy decadence. Inevitably the lyrics are not top priority and hark of those which "kind of fitted" whilst jamming.

Highlights come from opener "Tomorrow", the Von Bondiesish opening to "Burning Down The Wall" and the mighty closer "Death Addiction". Just hear him ride it down the fret board - weeeeaaaaaaooowww!

There's nothing wholly outstanding in the song writing and none of the slightly too long tunes really take the lead, but the vibe is good and a wealth of promising seeds are sewn. Some excellent guitar work from lead man Duncan Evans shows some genuine talent and appreciation for his forebears. One slight nag is the Amereecaannn! vocal style through out - a shame as Mr Evans is not without a good voice that he needs the false slant.

In all promising and proficient stuff.

I am very biased as these guys are good mates of mine, but I do love this CD - I havn't heard three better musicians playing together for ages. I think the CD really gives a glimpse of the vibe you get when you see them live, where they are utterly mindblowing. Go and see them at all costs!

Cheers for the review and the comments! I think the review is a pretty decent and constructive one. It's defintely true that we're much better live, so hopefully we can translate this more on to record next time.

cheers,

Duncan (Electric Mud Generator)
