DRAGONS: Sin Salvation: CD

Never heard so much as a note from these guys, but have heard good things about them, so I was looking forward to this listen. What I’m hearin’ are jams rooted in the Thunders School of Punk, updated and charged with post-hardcore aggressiveness. The result is a band that could easily share a bill with bands like Smogtown and the Stitches and yet still turn some heads among those who prefer to slum strictly in the Scandinavian rock ghetto. While this style is usually not my cup of tea these days, thanks in no small part to the seemingly endless hordes of clone bands polluting the genre’s gene pool, this particular release was pretty friggin’ rockin’.
