Cave Bear - Bones

Can "Whiskey" be a form of punk/rock and roll? If so, then these guys could very well be the kings of it. This is some straight-up dirty punk rock and roll with some of the harshest sounding vocals I've ever heard since Lemmy of Motorhead fame. (Insert Airheads' "Lemmy IS God" quote here.)

Comin' straight outta Chi-town, Cave Bear isn't your run-of-the-mill band. These guys are a diesel-fueled, beer-chugging beast of straight-forward rock and roll, kickin' out jam after jam in their collective effort to get your ass on the dance floor. Throw a little bluesy riffing in for good measure and you can see why these guys are turning more than a few heads. Every song is a churning mess of blood, sweat, and beer. You can't help but love that, right?

This is a very solid release from a relatively young band. My only complaint would be that at times I feel as if I'm listening to the same song. I'm not saying they're boring, far from it. I just feel as if the riffing style sort of starts to blend together after awhile. But, this is just a personal opinion. I actually find this release to be a great listen and would like to see what these guys put out in the future.

Heh, yeah.
I used it more for the swagger in their sound than for a literal meaning.

Threw some stuff up for the time being. I'll try to make it look a bit nicer when I get out of work.
