.@louelladeville_ @planetmosh review of .@M_D_A_E These Are Not Poetic Times EP
Manchester based Heavy Metal band Mad Dogs and Englishmen released their second EP These Are Not Poetic Times on the 14th April 2014.
The opening track Profit Through War started off a bit Rocking in the Free World by Neil Young quickly becoming heavier, Punkier say Black Sabbath meets The Exploited.
The Gank (Here Comes the Lawman) has a Led Zeppelin flavour to it. Great riffs, great rhythm, loud and fast in places, much mellower in others.
Ledrose with it’s gravelly vocals put me in mind of Rod Stewart’s singing style yet I also picked up a Wanted Dead or Alive by Bon Jovi vibe.
Mother Nature’s Fun again with elements of Black Sabbath but this time meeting The Black Crowes.
Four tracks with some meaningful lyrics. Well produced. Well thought out. Each track slightly different in style show-casing a wide range of influences and versatility.
Highlight track: Ledrose
