I have stumbled upon a band that I can’t pin down exactly why I like them. I. Just. Do. But since that most definitely doesn’t qualify as a review (well, maybe a blurb for the album inlay, but that’s about it) I’ll give it my best shot.
They’re pretty amazing. One of the great things about this band is that it is always changing. You take front man, Sir Izak K.O. (a.k.a. Izak Kosir) and throw together a lineup of different musicians and you end up with something great. You never know who you’ll see on stage with him so his sound is always changing. Each song on this album benefits from this unique setup, more artists should get on this bandwagon.
The songs speak of love, hate, deception, and possession. Izak writes them all himself and then he goes out and finds the right musicians to match the feel of the sound. The rhythms are rough with a little touch of grunge on the side. They are hypnotizing, when a song is over you feel like a little part of you is gone and then another one starts. When the album is over you’ll most likely start it again.
This is one of five bands that I have heard thus far in my life that makes me want to shout “OH MY GOD, this is awesome. Not one song on this album even remotely sucks, they’re all great. I couldn’t pick a favorite if you held a gun to my head, they’re all different. This is another of those bands that demands a listen.
I know I say this often, but I will be waiting on pins and needles to hear what else is in the works for The Toronto Drug Bust. I’m sure it won’t disappoint.
