ROYAL RED BRIGADE: On Crimson Shores: CD

Sinewy rhythms that roll all over you like all those snakes in the tomb Indiana Jones dropped into for a visit. Pummeling your ears into submission, the band takes it into overdrive on songs like “Blood Music” and “My Heart Spits.” Think Shawn Brown jamming with The Bronx and you will begin to get the idea. Hailing from Regina, Canada, I can only imagine the crowd’s reaction at a show. Intense. –Sean Koepenick (Harvest King, [email protected])
