The Dawn Cartel

The Dawn Cartel is a high powered Garage Rock band with a great flavor and some really fun songs. With a sound similar that features upbeat chord progressions The Dawn Cartel has some fun toe tapping music with decent lyrics. The guitar is not overly heavy but it has a lot of flavor in it and the chords are just so cheery that it makes me smile. In fact there is a great use of two guitars here with one that does root notes to compliment the vocals while a rhythm guitarist does the main progressions. The bass is pretty solid and does a good job complimenting the rhythm guitar but it does not really get to shine. Then we have the drums which are pretty well done however at some points they sound like they were recorded wrong. However on a simply technical level the drums are well done and likeable. Last we have the vocals which feature some raw powerful singing that just takes the bands energy to a whole new level. The singer for Dawn Cartel is very good and his voice just has a certain magic to it that makes this band pretty awesome. Go check em out you metal maggots.
