VOL. 1 SAMPLER
Queens, NY rockers Symptom 7 put their love affair with tumultuous riff rock on the map with this three-song sampler. Sharing the same keg cup as Black Label Society, Soundgarden, and Alice in Chains, this trio's crunchy guitars, deep in the pocket grooves, and clobbering basslines allow songs like "Bound" to shake your soul with finely tuned hard rock shredding. Sturdy as steel and tight as a drum, Symptom 7's aural assault is best served with a shot of Jack and a Bud chaser.
