It’s been a rough couple of decades. I don’t recall getting overly excited about too many new and original studio releases from bands. Composers? Yes, but bands? The number is so far and few between that it’s almost hard to remember. So when an album, like the self titled Death On Two Wheels, comes out and completely shatters my thought process on all things music. Well, I don’t recall being this excited about music since The Foo Fighters The Colour and The Shape.  
 
So how to sum up what you’re about to hear? Well, my first thought was that if Steven Tyler, Monster Magnet, The Foo Fighters, Nirvana, and the 70’s rock scene all got spliced together and made into some kind of crazy Frankenstein’s monster, this is what it would sound like.
 
Lead singer Trae Vedder’s voice is absolutely killer. He’s got a bluesy hard rock swagger that’s filtered through gravel and pumped out through a lions throat (listen to the album and call me on it if you like). The band is vicious with an unrelenting energy from the start of the album to the end. Drums are explosive, guitar equally as impressive, bass ominously wicked sounding on a majority of the album and uniquely stand alone amongst other tracks. 
 
You don’t have to take my word for it, the band has the album on stream and for purchase at their band camp page which I will link in this review, or head to my Facebook page and listen to it underneath my write up. The album is simply amazing from front to back. After a somewhat disappointing year of great music being buried beneath layers and layers of pop garbage, this is how 2013 deserves to go out, with a roar instead of a whimper. I highly suggest checking it out. Enjoy.
