From the opening bass solo, we know we’re ready to rock.
MICROTIA review on ROCKET MAGAZINE
False Eye Records
From the opening bass solo, we know we’re ready to rock. Some tricky time
changes add a progressive edge while the soaring vocals stay cleanly in
tune, keeping us safely clear of thrashier metal territory. While you might
not bring Microtia over to Grandmother’s house, no one is going to leave
the party if the soundtrack gets a little edgier, either. An actually cool
drum solo even emerges. Rhythm and harmonics, these fellows got ‘em.
They’ve also got the requisite facial hair styling, boasting one full
beard, one solo moustache, and two five-o’clock shadows. The CD features
truly green packaging, as the sleeves are hand crafted from the cartons of
over 1,650 beers and 2,500 cigarettes, all consumed by the band. Save the
earth and rock out at the same time. It’s a win-win situation.
