Red Sun Rising – Thread

Red Sun Rising – Thread
New Razor & Tie – 2018
Rock, Hard, Stoner, Grunge, Alternative
Rated: ***

The new Red Sun Rising album Thread is one hell of a weird animal. On some moments you almost want to dismiss it and throw it in a corner. On those moments it smells a bit funny and it tastes like something that a middle of the road hardrock band from America would deliver when it wants to make it into the charts of some dubious mid-western radio station. But those moments aren’t that common. Cause when the next track rolls around you get treated to something much grungier, much more alternative, nineties alluring and still with a catchy vide. As if Stone Temple Pilots and Smashing Pumpkins decided to record something together. And then a pure hardrock song hits you over the head. See where I’m getting at, this one has a bunch of different styles that aren’t just mixed in one song but across the entire album. And when you end an album with a track like Evil Like You, centered around some eerie sounding piano work, you’ve got my vote and my dime! So, head on over to the jukebox and put on some Red Sun Rising!
