There’s something almost intangible about a band with strong chemistry. Australian based rockers, October Rage is great excellent example of that. Nick Roberts – Vocals, guitar, William Roberts – bass, John Mcmullen – guitars, Keys and Kai Chambers – drums. The band’s latest release, ‘Fallout, Dust And Guns is powerhouse of recording that is guaranteed to rock your senses!
From start to finish this album just keeps rocking. From opening charge of “Valkyrie” that explodes out your speakers with its pulsating groove and Nick Robert’s swagger filled vocals. “Signal Fire” starts off with slow with a haunting piano intro then builds up to a strong melodic mover. The band turn up the heat with the groove laden rocker, “End Of Days”. On the last two tracks the band show that their musical repertoire is not just about kicking out hard hitting rock songs, “Heart Of Stone”, is a melodic number that is gem of a song. While, the majestic rocker “White Walkers”, is powerful. Every track has it’s own groove to it and really fits nice with the collection of songs on the album. When the guitarists vibe off each other just right, the bassist is lock in step with the drummer, the music almost transcends the musicians. And when the vocalist is feeding off the power of the other players, the end result is one hell of a recording. If you like hard rock with great vocals, killer bottom end, and groove that’s what October Rage is all about. ‘Fallout, Dust And Guns’ is killer album and comes highly recommended.
