SONS OF SOUND - BOUND IN SOUND
Metal To Infinity
suppose the older amongst us still remember the TV series “Tour Of Duty”. It
was in the eighties my favourite program, about an American platoon during the
Vietnam war. Some TV channel should bring it back, it can’t be dated! To be
honest the Vietnam war did always passionate me for some unknown reasons. Anyway
“Paint It Black” was the title track of “Tour Of Duty”, original it is a
song from the Rolling Stones. Every time I hear this song, the best Stones song
to me anyway, I have to think about this program, longing to see it once more.
The seventies songs, who were used in every episode, never miss their effects on
me and therefore it’s so difficult to make a cover from them, the specific
moods in every particular song is so hard to imitate.
Of Sound is a German band and as far as I see this band contains three brothers.
I don’t know if any other Hard Rock or Metal band ever contained three members
of the same family. At least I don’t know any... This band takes of with
“Paint it black”, the reason why I started the review with this song and
it’s not at all a bad cover. Nevertheless it can’t hook up wit the original,
a mission impossible anyway but it’s rather bizarre to start this EP with it.
Sons Of Sound plays their own songs from which “Are You Ready” is their
official video-clip. Sons Of Sound stands for hard hitting and rolling Hard
Rock, at some points more melodic Metal. Especially Rage is crossing my mind, I
suppose because of the vocals, although Rage is heavier and more technical all
the way. Don’t get me wrong; Sons Of Sound is heavy enough and for sure these
guys know how to write a good song. At the one hand you will discover you’ve
heard everything ever before, at the other hand the way they perform it sounds
pretty original. Maybe it is because of the fact they mix at more points some
bluesy tunes in between their tracks...
EP swings from the beginning until the end and mixes a bit Motörhead with Rage,
with some Grunge and Blues music. They’re rocking and rolling but it doesn’t
take many time to find out these guys knows how to handle their instruments and
it’s obvious they’re doing it with pleasure. I suppose this is a kicking ass
live band! Check them out at
My points: 77 / 100 (Review by Officer Nice)
