Solenoid (CD)
New wave of what? British heavy metal? Not exactly... Solenoid emerge straight from the Belgian foundations of metal and rock. Heavy Metal? Not quite... Solenoid carry more in their navigating thick soup of - let's face it - music than the metal of their peers who are still stuck into the simple steel driven alternative for the heavy genre. This new wave of Belgian heavy rock 'n roll could do the trick. These five scruffy rock addicts had been playing in almost every guitar based band in and around their hometown Genk. Fucking up the best elements of whatever they were into at that time, Solenoid's engine got oiled with the best of what was yet to come: a break necking view on the past decades of rock 'n metal. How furiously are Solenoid that they make Lemmy seem ironic and leave him 'Out In The Cold'? They exhume the 'Angelspray' of the old dark clouded Sabbath. Even some blistering punkabilly swing or old school riffing taught by the iron lady of Dickinson and his gang. Tours with Gwar, Anvil and Valis already showed a great deal of Solenoid's open mindedness, going from metal over rock to stoner. And if Chris Tsangarides doesn't ring a bell, here you go... Judas Priest, Exodus, Thin Lizzy, Black Sabbath and... Solenoid have Chris' name somewhere mentioned in their liner notes. With references like these you can't go wrong. No nonsense bullshit or over the top shredding posers but straight to the bone in you face heavy rock music as it was supposed to sound like when the foundations were laid.
