ROCKING CORPSES (Finland) “Rock ‘n’ Rott” CD review


By Tania Giménez

ROCKING CORPSES. There would be no better name for a band with the peculiar sound that downloads this Finnish combo (which is practically impossible to find information) that launches 2012, through Abyss Records, their debut album “Rock n ‘Rott”. The truth is that coming from a label such as Abyss, not many people expect to find in this compact sound that we are in the.

And that sound is none other than a very basic melodic rock, with inspirations from all kinds of Rock, from different backgrounds and age. On cuts like “Up from the Grave” (the first song after the intro), opt for a leisurely tempo, some samples and a huge guitar distortion while, on the other hand, the voices are almost always clean (even some guttural at the beginning). “Necropolis” is a catchy and fast cutting, with musical touches very metalheads and excellent riffs which may give off a whiff ZZ TOP, in perfect communion with the interesting combination of vocal registers. On the other hand we find “For Better for Worse,” a cheerful rhythm track punk rocker, a versatile guitar-work with a huge distortion, giving the song a very dark sound that goes hand in glove with the deep grunts , which give way to clean vocal lines in a catchy chorus and full of melody. Possibly this is one of the most elaborate of the compact, incorporating all the elements that create the essence. Blues cuts not lacking, almost Sludge, as is the case of slow, dense “Life for a Life”. The other titles are happening, alternating in different ways using elements in their music, without much feeling, and although the ideas are good, without too much grip in the moments that should be more catchy.

ROCKING CORPSES offer an original, creating an interesting fusion of instrumental rock base, with touches of Metal, and also a combination of clean vocals and intense guttural. That said, the production is very dirty, giving a very classic sound to the album, also a certain density and darkness, which does not really fit too well with its more rock, but with its subtle side Death. Therefore, it should work a little longer to find a production that will help your sound, his two musical sides as well as working more clean vocals and further develop his compositions, but must take into account that only is their first round. Anyway, find something fresh and brave always good news.
