A Life Once Lost - Iron Gag

A metal band out of the modern metal mould ALOL still have their own sound that produces fresh metal to head bang too. This album 'IRON GAG' continues where they left off with 'Hunter' the bands first release on Ferret records, one thing about Ferret is that they leave the band to develop their own sound in their own way without interfering which is why the band decided to produce the album themselves and allowed their natural tendencies to manifest through the heavy sound that seems to have a mean vicious feel to many of the tracks throughout the tight riffs and squealing tweaks that only a true metal head would want to include.

ALOL have produced a massive eleven track album that thunders and crunches along without respite. The band have grown between albums and perhaps this is where the more heavy riffy sound has come from, either way it is the natural evolution of a band to change or die and this beast has evolved into something more heavy then before and long may they continue to evolve. ALOL come from Philadelphia USA and have been evolving since 1999 bands usually start heavy and evolve into mild manner creatures but with ALOL it has been the reverse.. have they found the secret of regeneration?

Iron Gag opens with 'Firewater Water Joyride' and is full of powerhouse backend and twin guitar riffs with a dancing little solo that takes the song up a notch the sad thing is that the tune only lasts a measly three minutes, the second track 'Detest' has Meadows displaying a nasty feel to his vocals while the guitars spit knife thrusts.. cool stuff, upto now its been heavy riffs punctuated with slashing guitar thrusts and squeals, with the third song 'The Wanderer' the speed slows a notch allowing the band to show some melodic metal laced with great solid head nodding riffs. The album is a heavy manifestation of personal tastes and is going to grow the bands reputation beyond containment.
