AT THE SUN

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

London based heavy rock band AT THE SUN released their debut release Breathe EP on 3rd June with a launch party at The Water Rats, London. The album was recorded, mixed and mastered by John Mitchell at Outhouse StudiosAT THE SUN was formed by rhythm guitarist Kieron Heavens and bass player Alex Matthews who sought out the finest musicians they could find, to join them in their venture.

During this mini heatwave I really do feel like I’ve been AT THE SUN today for a lot longer than the nearly twenty minutes offered in this blistering debut. Opening and title track Breathe with it’s powerful driving beat reminds me of Drive It Like You Stole It by, the recently disbanded, Colour of Noise with Harry’s vocals sounding similar to those of James Toseland throughout the EP. Walk On Over a very seductive song, with some great riffage has a late sixties/early seventies vibe I’m thinking something along the lines of a Dazed and Confused Led Zeppelin doing Black Sabbath’s War Pigs!  Devil in Your Eyes a powerful song with a chugging beat and an Inglorious/Toseland feel. Then last, but by no means least, we finish with Indestructible a mellower number which has more of a gothic flavour think, The Cult or The Sisters of Mercy.

An impressive debut from AT THE SUN with powerful vocals and solid musicianship, which hints at bigger and better things to come. Should appeal to fans of Stone Broken, Toseland, Bigfoot and Inglorious.

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot!
My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!'
The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;)
Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
