INFERNAL OVERDRIVE – Last Rays Of The Dying Sun

(Small Stone Records 2012) www.smallstone.com

Infernal Overdrive are a four piece fronted by Marc Schleicher (lead guitar/vocals) and they meld classic 70′s rock from the likes of Cactus, Grand Funk Railroad, Blue Oyster Cult and more modern bands like QOTSA and Soundgarden.

The band do get lumped in with the stoner rock bands, which for the most part is a key component of their sound but grab a listen to ‘The Edge’ and you’d swear it was BOC in their swaggering prime. ‘Cage’ is another groove filled rocker and they tear through a cover of Ace Frehley’s ‘Rip It Out’. All through the album the guitars keep up a series of classy solos and big, thick riffs. Quick mention to the drums played by Mike Bennett, who fits a couple of drum solos into songs and pounds the skins like a man possessed.

Highly enjoyable album and they deserve a place in the stoner rock fans collection plus those who like classic 70′s US rock from the likes of Grand Funk Railroad et al.
