Grizzly Knows No Remorse from Moscow, Russia, release a new album that screams, growls, and exhibits versatility certain to bring even the most complacent fan out of hibernation.
Right out of the denâ€™s gate the title of the album Fat Glasses and The Leather Mustache from Grizzly Knows No Remorse (GKNR) hints at something outstanding is about to unfold. A title that clever with track titles to match are nothing compared to the versatile exhibition for the ears will have you trying to decide if you should jump in the mosh pit, grab your air guitar, or just head bang the steering wheel until it breaks.
Southern rock or metalcore have been used to describe the music, and that would be accurate except for the fact that as you listen to each track you might find yourself thinking one, then the other and back again. The versatility of the music and the lyrics of “We Are The Party,” “Waiting To Be,” and “Wasted Prophet” alone illustrate the talent possessed by this band.
“What It Takes and How It Tastes” with the grinding guitar, beat heavy drums and powerful lyrics begin the track list and the power continues through to, “Waiting To Be.” With what feels like an intermission midway through the album allowing you to catch your breath before “The Hangover Anthem” stands you back up to culminate with a shredding guitar and power ending with “Wasted Prophet,” this album with leave you breathless and spent.
If you like southern rock you are sure to love this badass band. They are a reminder of those classic days gone by that I myself long for in a world of genre confusion, and yet they foot this bill for my inner metal head.
GKNR were formed in 2009 and this is their fourth release.
