The Antares are a trio who kick the shit out of their songs with barely controlled abandon. There´s nowhere to hide in a three-piece band and none of them need to. The guitar is fat-sounding and right up-front, the singer blurts it out with no affectations and the drummer nails the beat with more than a little swing, especially on ´´So What (Bout Our Rock n Roll).´´ Fans of tear-me-a-new-arsehole guitar will like what they hear. There are more arpeggios than a chord repair shop but they´re reeled off like a six-string machine gun rather than a Steve Vai There are no surprises here but it´d be a shock if you could point your finger at something in the rock and roll sewer line that is. Opener ´´Seek You Down In Hell´´ is a scene-setter. Its deceptively-buried drum pattern intro slides into a full-on ragged assault that batters the ears in the best way. From then on in, the rock doesn´t drop with ´´16 Was Too Much´´, ´´Hard Cock Blues´´ and the showy but solid instro ´´Start Your Engines´´ all stand-outs. There were no metronomes used on this record. I know because the CD slick tells me so. I can´t tell you how relieved I am to hear that. That´s cool. If you´re going to be a cock rocker, wear the badge on your sleeve.Track listing:1 Seek You Down in Hell 2 Time Waster 3 16 Was Too Much 4 Nightmare 5 Welcome To San 6 So What 7 Hard Cock Blues 8 Stay Out All Night 9 Start Your Engines 10 Spirit of the Night
