Crescendolls: Proudly Presents Ten ...

Heavy/Stoner Rock
3.0/5.0

Sweden power trio Crescendolls take the reigns of their destiny by releasing long-titled Powertrio Proudly Presents Ten Out of Ten on their own Clandestiny Records. As suggested the disc contains ten songs of Crescendolls fuzz laden mixture of heavy and stoner rock. Whether the songs deliver a 'ten' in quality will be in the ears of the listener.

The work starts strong with the quick paced (and short) tunes. Oneliner offers rock driven by nice bass, and some groovy vocals. Time His Currency is a bit heavier with some clever drummer. Who easily passes for alt melodic rock with ambitious work from the rhythm section, and mash up ending.

Then things get a bit dull, even predictable as both Lonely Sundown and Someone merely pass for heavy stoner rock. Superman improves with some lighter notes, a strong vocal arrangement, and a chaotic conclusion. Better, however is Wild Ones which offers catchy, less cryptic, melodic rock, and fine guitar solo. Another interesting moment is Catcher in the Rye thanks to its brisk psychedelic feel. Otherwise, you can pass on the last third of the album.

There is little doubt, however, the Crescendolls are a strong and talented band. This power trio truly packs a punch thanks to massive riffage and a huge rhythm section. If heavy rock with a touch of stoner and alt style is you thing, you'll dig Powertrio Proudly Presents Ten Out of Ten.
