In that review, in addition to saying stuff like "...these dudes have a 90s alt-rock edge grinding against their love affair with riffs that crash bolts of lightning into stacks of Orange amps in delivering a rumbling calling card of hellacious noise," the band's live show was praised by your truly. As a heads up to our overseas readers and those of you on an Old World vacation looking for something non-touristy to do, the band's first European tour starts on Tuesday.
