Album Review By JD Rich

Boston Rock Radio

 

 

Sometimes, seemingly random events have a way of producing an amazing outcome. My philosophy is that what is meant to be will happen, one way or another. It may take its own sweet time, but it will happen. Your honor, I present my first exhibit: Blisskreig. Finally, fate didn’t let me down. All it took was a pandemic and a little networking. Now I present exhibit “B” to prove my case: Remedy, the debut EP by a quartet of veteran rockers.​

Take a bunch of Tantric, some Days of the New, a bit of Submersed, and throw in a smattering of Eye Empire. Now, toss it all into the musical blender. Next thing y’know, we’ve got an audio supergroup smoothie known as Blisskrieg. Yeah, I knew I was hooked the moment I heard those delicious harmonies when the first track, “Inside Me” kicked in. Only a fool would assume it’s just ex-members looking to cash in on vibes they nurtured from the past. There is nothing contrived or rehashed here, it’s all poppin’ fresh from the audio oven.​

Remedy feels like absent friends just got in touch with us to deliver a shiny new gift. We know them from their previous endeavors. We can hear their individual characteristic styles; however, all of them working together as one produced whole new entity, still remaining familiar with fresh sounds. Blisskrieg took experience from years gone by and made something better. The synergy formed on Remedy results in a tight, strong feel to their direction.​

Drummer Matt Taul instinctively knows when to pull back, assuming the role of accompanying percussion. Just as much, he also knows when to go all out, taking control of the musical direction without coming across as a glory-hog (are you listening, Tommy Lee? It’s not always about you, sweetie). Bassist Jesse Vest forms a musical symbiosis with Vaul and roots us in the lower end with velvety decorum. I’m guessing guitarist Todd Whitener tried out some new techniques, making a noticeable departure from expectations he shouldered in previous projects. It’s still Rock, but there’s more room here, and he really let his skills expand. The same can be said for Donald Carpenter, who also appears to have reached past previous confines. His enthusiasm for Blisskrieg translates extraordinarily well through his vocals.​

Remedy is a deeper realization of what Rock means to fans, made by fans, for fans. We all win here. If you are sick of stagnant corporate rock that’s been formulated to death, Dr. JD is here to prescribe the Remedy, available now. No shots, no waiting, and no proof of medical insurance is required!
