MetalBite Review by Chris on 7/25/2006
What can I say; those northern boys can shake the house with their version of Southern Rock. Formed in Troy, New York by members of Stigmata
and The Clay People
, debut album "Sin-Eater"
should appeal to any fan who finds pleasure in Black Label Society, C.O.C, Clutch
and anything in between. With that in mind, it shouldn't surprise anyone that our guitar duo is quite influenced by Zack Wylde and whole album is full of roaring tunes with crunchy and groove riffs, atmospheric passages and blazing solos, just check seventh track 'Away from the Sun' and you'll know exactly what I'm talking about. But don't make a mistake of labeling them a Black Label
cover band because style wise Dead Rabbits
have a lot more to offer and those typical for debut album mistakes will go away with future releases where their own sound should crystallize and make Rabbits
a force to reckon with – no matter how funny that sounds. Which brings me to the point of how much did you guys smoke to finally decide on that name?
