fed to the lions – tax the heat

A sharp suited rock band who play 40 year old equipment to sound vintage despite releasing their debut EP and album in the last 18 months. There’s a lack of artistic ambition for sure but there is a dedication to the craft, the traditions and to the love of all things Rock.

Fed To The Lions is a Schrodinger’s Cat of a record. It’s either totally unoriginal copyist dogma or it’s a spot on resurgence of all the classic tropes the genre has to offer. It’s a sham or it’s a treat.

A hollering vocalist (admittedly sounding like he’s at the top of his range) over thunking blues riffs. Tax The Heat make a noise that could have supported Whitesnake in the 70’s, AC/DC in the 80’s, Thunder in the 90’s, Jet in the 00’s and The Temperance Movement today. This is a rock song. By a rock band. Throwing rock shapes. Just like they always have. And here’s hoping just like they always will.
