Tia Carrera: Heaven/Hell

Labeled as an EP, bit quite frankly longer in length than some metal releases that have come out in recent memory, Tia Carrera's Heaven/Hell is 33 minutes of unbridled guitar jams, a chance meeting of Black Sabbath and Jimi Hendrix so to speak. Featuring Jason Morales on guitar, Erik Conn on drums, and Jamey Simms on bass, this trio from Texas know how to lock into a groove and blast into hyperspace on extended psychedelic/stoner rock jams. For "Heaven", the three go full speed ahead, with Morales leading the charge with plenty of wicked, acid-laced solos, dripping with feedback and effects, which will bring a smile to the faces of Hendrix, Marino, and Trower fans worldwide. For "Hell", the band settles down a bit to a slower, more plodding blues-meets Sabbath pace, again with Morales effects laden guitar work out front, while Conn and Simms plow ahead with rock solid rhythms. If you like rock guitar with lots of distortion, feedback, and wah, this one is sure to get the drool factor going. "End of Tape" is the only short piece on the EP, an excuse for the trio to blast off some huge wah-wah drenched riffs and let things feedback and flail, for what is a fitting finale to this fairly short but raucous affair.

Guitar nuts who cream over this kind of thing (and you know who you are) get ready to scoop this little nugget up, crank up the lava lamp, indulge in whatever recreational activities float your boat, and get ready to get your freak on. Wild stuff.
