ATOMIC NUMBER 76
Remember when bands used to jam out like their careers depended on it? Atomic Number 76 sure as hell does, and this rebellious NYC-based rock 'n roll trio go full throttle on their latest five-song sojourn. Sounding like Black Label Society rewound 25 years or an updated version of Cream with many more barroom brawls under their belts, tracks like "Panspermia" glisten with glam rock glitz and '70s arena rock-sized balls, while "Voice Activated" summons the ghost of Ozzy-era Sabbath's vocals with tasty guitar licks and a monolithically relentless rhythm section that pounds out the groove. Tune into Atomic Number 76's trippy hard rock and feel your foundations shake from the inside.
