Album: Sixty Nine
Release date: 1st February 2014
The 5 piece from London have not failed to impress. This is an album you won’t want to miss out on. It has elements of classic, old school rock with vocals that are aching to be listened to and you’ll find their music isn’t shouting at you like other rock bands. Three Days Grace eat your heart out.
This will most likely appeal to fans of the Foo Fighters, Stone Sour, Three Days Grace and Alter Bridge, but anyone who generally enjoys rock music will probably like this Thulium.
The first few tracks are upbeat and melodic, the perfect way to open their album. The track For Real opens the album up perfectly with a tight bassline, before breaking into a catchy guitar riff. This is then followed by some husky Myles Kennedy-esque vocals, which really suits the music.
This standard of music never falters and the track Perfect Lifemare is the pinnacle of the album. It has elements of Avenged Sevenfold’s song Nightmare with a demonic laugh opening the song – yet they put their own spin on it with a complex guitar riff and those defined vocals once again from front man Boubou.
Midway through this album the song Love Dynamite hits you with a Red Hot Chilli Peppers style guitar riff mixed with some softer vocals a soft drum beat. Then as the song continues it opens up a mosh pit of raw and heavy talent. The ending of the album closes with the track Shapes of Things to Come. It has elements of softness, harshness and every aspect of their music combined in one song, which is a real treat.
Ultimately the album is very classic, the kind of rock the world’s forgotten about and is missing out on most of the time nowadays. Its genre isn’t hard to define and it stays true to itself.
