PRINCESS THUNDERSTORM: Self-Titled: 7″

Sometimes when I’m on the bus I wonder about things—like what all the classic rock greats (Black Sabbath, AC/DC, CCR, etc.) would sound like if they had grown up listening to punk, hardcore, and other alternative rock in between the years of 1984 and 1994. It definitely would not sound like classic rock, but it might sound like Princess Thunderstorm. They play unapologetic guitar-driven rock that doesn’t wank at all, with anywhere from one to four people unleashing some extremely venomous vocals over it. It’s a mighty combo of fury, tongue-in-cheek humor, and relentless DIY rock.
