THUNDERCRACK: The Crack: CD

Two reasons I picked this one up: 1) with a name that bad, the band’s gotta be good, right? 2) one of the guys looks like The Rock, but way skinnier. So with these high expectations, how did they fare? Actually, they’re pretty good. They’ve got that spooky voodoo-esque feel to them and distorted vocals to make them sound a step closer to Howlin’ Wolf. To be honest, if I want to listen to something in this vein, I’ll throw on the Starvations, who I think just do it better, but this has definite potential to grow on me.
