With a name like Hound, I expected something heavy and in my face, and that’s what I got. The vocals have a low, distorted, drunken charm to them. The tunes are really straight-forward, driving, hard rock jams—mostly riff-driven and shy of a lot of flashy leads. There are heavy rock’n’roll and early metal influences here, but more punk via the Ramones.
