fine release coming out Eonian Records stable is Charlotte’s 'Medusa Groove'
album. A band that didn’t jump on the hair metal band wagon
choosing instead to go down the more bluesy groove filled rock road.
'Medusa Groove' wouldn’t go amiss amongst the albums of today with their
Great White and Zepplinesque bluesy feel. Right from the onset things
couldn’t get off to a better start with the title track ‘Medusa
Groove’, with frontman Eddie Ganz bringing a Coverdale / Plant mix to
proceedings, while Nick DiBacco and Vinnie Cacciotti bring in the six
string heat. But guitars and vocals need a foundation to build upon and
the solid backing of Eric Brewton and Chris Colovas make this happen.
album is filled with top notch Melodic and Hard Rock blues filled tunes
as the album continues to impress with ‘Woman Behind The Eyes’, a
great slow burning guitar riff on this one, really bringing in that Great
White feel I talked about. Then it’s a couple of my favourites from
the album the excellent riff spewn rocker ‘Siren’ and the all out
Hard Rock of ‘Little Devils’, with again Ganz bringing forth those smooth Plant
styled vocals into the mix. Great stuff!
The album continues to bring great track after great track, with my pick of the bunch being ‘Miss Necrophilia’ and the good time rockers ‘She Get It Up’ and ‘Got Love On The Line’. For those of you who like something a bit more akin to a ballad then ‘Changes’ is the song for you. These are just a few of my favourites from the album but there is much more to the album than my own personal preferences. There is more than enough to impress even the most die-hard of Melodic and Hard Rock fans out there. This is definitely one album worth a few more outings.
