Reviewer: Celtic Bob
Detroit 5 piece band Overloaded formed in the summer of 2004 and have taken the Motor City by storm ever since. With this 7 song debut recording they are gearing up to hit the rest of the planet.
Classic Heavy Metal! A true hard rocking metal release with crunchy, distorted guitars and in your face vocals. Vocally you can compare them to old Deep Purple with a little Sammy Hagar tossed in. A very cool yet not overly unique vocal style. There are no real stand out tracks here but the guitar solo’s and music is nothing short of excellence. Songs like “Beaver Feaver” and “Feeling Overloaded” are my personal picks for the great performance and musicianship.
A great new band with a whole lot of potential. Watch out for them because they will be big.
