Tricorn – The Walk of Shame



Tricorn – The Walk of Shame
Bad Shrink Records/Plastic Head – 2013
Rock, Hard, Stoner, Alternative, Metal
Rated: ****
 
The Walk of Shame was released at the tail-end of 2013; and it’s the sophomore effort by English quartet Tricorn. After some trials and tribulations most bands seems to suffer they found a new line-up and new goals to shoot for. The new album continues where their self-titled debut from 2010 left off; but with even more energy and chutzpah. Cause where their first release could be considered as an ode to how this particular heavy rock ‘scene’ got started; this one decides to forget most of what they’ve learned and go their own way. Sure we still hear that stoner riff; the alternative metal edge from the nineties and the hard rock drive. But this time around they aim for the big groove and gigantic rawness and still retaining a truckload of melody and something that constantly reminds but never pinpoints. It moves ever forward from the desert heat towards the city gutter. A gutter filled with bourbon stains and loose women. And together with this Tricorn album you will have a damn good time!
