ANNIHILATION TIME: III: Tales of the Ancient Age: CD

It only takes one listen to a band like Motörhead to know the idea of mixing ‘70s-tinged hard rock with punk ain’t a new one, but these guys are quite proficient at it. Melding a hardcore shouter to a band well verse in Richie Blackmore riffage and the occasional Iron Maiden lead, they kick up a nice ruckus. Considering they dip their toes in two of his favorite pools, Mike from Circle One would probably adore ’em if he gets wind of ’em.
