Barn Burner Bangers

Barn Burner Bangers

Holy shit. Rock'n'roll is awesome, right? Montreal's Barn Burner know this and Bangers is the proof. Like Torche, minus the drone, plus Black Flag, Barn Burner craft catchy, heavy songs that play like Cheap Trick's long-lost stab at punk rock credibility. "Holy Smokes" opens the proceedings with a bang, wasting no time in getting down to total guitar-shredding business, while songs like "The Long Arm Of The Law" drive forward with more hardcore energy and "whoa oh" action than classic rock aggression. All signs point to Barn Burner having a pretty fierce dedication to partying (check out "Beer Today, Bong Tomorrow"), and Bangers is the ideal soundtrack to the kind of Sabbath-drenched rager that like-minded folks will feel right at home at.
