As much as the name suggests something, er, Plain, it is far from being so. This Norwegian four piece show that Hard Rock really is something to be paid attention to. Their unmistakable style of a thrash styled rock gives a one-two punch of recognisable vocals and ever changing musical sound. The lyrics and the delivery by them is pretty astounding, flicking between screams and clean vocals as easily and done as well as bands who use two vocalists such as Scar Symmetry and Ne Obliviscaris.
Comedy Rock / Metal is a genre which has very few artists that can be termed ‘good’. More often, it lacks musically and sometimes the lyrics are not funny at all. Workshop, the side project of Sahil “the demonstealer” Makijha, is a band that manages to pull off both effectively.
