RED I CLAN: Killohead: CD

Sometimes an unfortunate side effect of formal musical training is that while one becomes a proficient player, somehow the ability to actually create compelling music from scratch is difficult. That seems to be the case here. While years of training is in evidence in the musicianship, and it’s clear that may a mix of rock, techno, and quasi-industrial dance was a good idea on paper, the execution is sorely lacking in good sound structure, passion, and remotely compelling songs. What you end up with here is an album that sounds like it was made by people who knew how to play but really weren’t all that interested in what they were doing.
