Adrenechrome-Hideous Appetites


Orillia, Ontario's Adrenechrome are a fairly young four-piece band. The band was formed just two years ago and is made up of vocalist/guitarist Chris Friesen, guitarist Tim Kehoe, bassist Mike Van Dyk and drummer Matt Copeland (who I assume is no relation to Stewart Copeland although that would be cool). Musically this self-released affair (which was produced and mixed by Darius Szcespaniak at Iguana Studios) is quite the interesting ride. Seemingly this band is not only content to get themselves drunk on modern metal (there's some Mastodon, Baroness and Bison B.C. to be found amongst the grooves), but more vintage brands like Megadeth, Pantera, Metallica, Black Sabbath, C.O.C. and Exodus. Somehow all these sounds perfectly merge together to create this stoner/thrash/groove/heavy metal platter. Just when you think the band is too busy thrashing out to some vintage Metallica riffs along comes a classic rock-inspired break down leaving you shaking your head in disbelief. Why? Because it all makes sense. Somehow/someway it all fits together like a puzzle and this LP leaves you thirsty for more. It's more then crossover. It's like crossover EXTREME with anything (groove) and everything (thrash) thrown in to make things extra spicy! This is another young uncompromising band to keep an eye out for. Highly unusual and highly recommend.
