So our friends in Adiron put out their first EP last week titled 'Frequency & Pressure', and our very own Jameson wrote up a review on it! You can find the album on iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, or at their bandcamp page (http://adiron.bandcamp.com/album/frequency-pressure) Get over there and give it a listen. The Elvis and Alfred Show approves!
Once in a while you get a chance to listen to a record and you think to yourself, I can't wait to hear more. That's the way I felt when I first listened to the recently released first EP from the band Adiron. 'Frequency & Pressure' was released last week on iTunes and I foresee this band doing big things in they're home base of Long Island. Formed last year after the split of Whiskey Hotel, frontman Shawn O'Connor joined back up with former The Legend Lives cohorts and brothers Lou (guitar) and Brian (drums) Pelosi. Along with Guitarist George Giosi (formerly Not So Broken) and newcomer Erik Jacobsen with his screams and harmonies, this group of heavy hitters got right down to business. It can be heard on the record that it is very much guitar driven, with both George and Lou switching off on bass (Yes they are in need of a solid Bass player!). Every track from first to last takes you on a whirlwind ride of shredding and rawness that has been missing from so many of the bands of recent that have come out and flopped. The chemistry between the powerful vocals of Shawn and Erik works so well and compliment each other perfectly. And lastly, the drumming of Brian is heavy and intricate enough to keep your head banging, and your air drumming constant and in check! I assure you that Adiron is one of those bands that have a fire under them to become a big name in the Long Island scene, and I for one cannot wait. - Jameson
