Heist – Razorblade Lemonade

Heist – Razorblade Lemonade
Splinters - 2010
Waardering: ****

The five bastards of Heist live in the vicinity of Haarlem, Netherlands and have been playing together for about five years. Before and in between those years the guys played with band like Cereal, MissAntartica, Club of High Eyebrows and Keith Caputo. With their debut-album Razorblade Lemonade they show the world that in those years they have been honing their craftsmanship and have been preparing a massive raid upon the music-loving world. The nine songs on this album do not have a fault within them and show a broad spectrum of influences all stemming from the alternative rockscene. Think of Kyuss, Queens of The Stone Age, Soundgarden, Alice in Chains and Foo Fighters. On occasion they drift a bit more in the direction of postrock and pop, but always with extreme prejudice. (Thanks to producer/master Justin Shturtz of among others Sigur Ros?) Dynamic, blasting riffs, pummeling drums, grooving rhythms, variation and precise. A very successful Heist with an extremely large loot!
