Talk about a power trio! Symptom 7 is a metal outfit whose 12-track disc VOL. 1 scorches from top to bottom with jaw-dropping fretwork, balls heavy rhythms, and the kind of low-end crush employed by Alice in Chains, Black Label Society, Soundgarden, and of course, the almighty Black Sabbath. Armed with memorable riffs like the ones found "Bound", "Trip", and "Killin' Floor", if you hanker for no frills, technically excellent hard rock, this crushingly heavy offering is a must-have disc. Symptom 7 successfully melds the attitude and vibes of grunge, metal, and hard rock with a monstrous delivery that anyone that appreciates all things rock can't help but crank up to 11 and rock out to.
