MARDO: Self-titled: CD

With the self-inflated write up on the insert, I was expecting something a lot more complex with this one. This is simple, simple, mid-tempo hard rock, in an almost old ‘80s metal sort of way. I think I heard dueling Iron Maiden solos in there somewhere. And speaking of the ‘80s, they do a Huey Lewis And The News cover. That left me speechless.
