Dirty Sound Magnet-What Lies Behind

Domino Media Group seems to be have a very promising and rapidly growing group of young bluesy hard rock bands on its roster. The latest band that I have to review of theirs is the Swiss act Dirty Sound Magnet. There new album What Lies Behind is a tasty rock and roll album with progressive song structures that are reminiscent of Led Zeppelin or even Jack White at times. Their surprisingly epic soundscapes and gritty riffs are a lot of fun to listen too and they show a promising band who are just starting to bring their music to the next level.

One of the most notable aspects of this album is the very bluesy soloing that permeates the record. The vast majority of the tracks have a delicious solo or two that is reminiscent of Jimmy Page or at times BB King. The vocals have a great vibrant energy that transports the listener back to the 70s. They are filled with a radical might that gives the music a glorious and triumphant feel. Meanwhile the rhythm section gives the group a constant forward motion. In particular, the drums are rather explosive and show off the bands penchant to explode with a heavy metal energy.

To wrap up, Dirty Sound Magnet have released a rock record in the grand old style. With delicious and crunchy riffs What Lies Behind is a beautiful tribute t the magic of bands like Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd. The vaguely progressive nature of most of the tracks helps to make the record feel longer than it actually is. A great example of how revival rock can still be interesting and fun What Lies Behind is a 21st century classic rock masterwork. With a huge Led Zep influence and a great understanding of what rock and roll should be about Dirty Sound Magnet is a band all fans of the rock gods should check out!
