Company Band, The: Pros & Cons EP

When I first picked this one up there were a couple of things not in its favour. Firstly The Company Band is, according to their wiki, "a rock supergroup featuring Clutch frontman Neil Fallon, Fireball Ministry frontman James Rota, CKY drummer Jess Margera, guitarist Dave Bone, and Fu Manchu bassist Brad Davis." I am not always a big fan of supergroups Velvet Revolver anyone? I'm also not a huge fan of some of the parent bands of the protagonists within The Company Band.

Therefore I am pleased that my fears were unrealised as Pros & Cons is a pretty solid release. It won't change the world, but its more than perfunctory stuff. Solid is in fact a good word to describe all five tracks on offer. From the first and best song "House of Capricorn" to "El Dorado" this is manly hard rock that is vaguely southern and vaguely stonerish rock and indeed roll. It's also not quite as depressing as the participants might suggest, it's quite uplifting and bouncy as on "Black Light Fever". The sound is much cleaner than one would expect especially the guitars which are nice and crisp throughout. An album like this would be nice.

Track Listing:
1) House of Capricorn
2) Black Light Fever
3) Kill Screen
4) Loc Nar
5) El Dorado
