Company Band, The: Pros & Cons
The Company Band - Pros & Cons (EP) Review

Company Band, The: Pros & Cons

(Melodic) Hard/Heavy Rock
3.5/5.0

The Company Band's occasional meetings of friends yields another EP of tunes, Pros & Cons. This band of like-minded jammers includes a who's who of recent modern rock: vocalist Neil Fallon from Clutch, drummer Jess Margera from CKY, guitarist/vocalist Jim Rota from Fireball Ministry, bassist Brad Davis from Fu Manchu and guitarist Dave Bone.

The Company Band: dig that carpeting.

But the music of Pros & Cons may remind more of late Seventies heavy rock. The groove is steady and efficient, the melodies and hooks carefully crafted. Listening to El Dorado or Loc Nar, it feels like the band set the tempo to a sipping whiskey slow burn. Yet, the opener House of Capricorn offers some sweaty rock, like CCR in a modern context. Kill Screen even has a speedier pace. In the end, every song will grow on you.

If you like their previous material, the particular musicians, or the likes of Clutch or Fireball Ministry, then add The Company Band's Pros & Cons to your iPod playlist.






In Short

The Company Band, a modern rock super group of sorts, returns with a five song EP of heavier, groovier, and sometimes slow burning rock.
