In the thirteen years that I’ve been writing about music, I haven’t really been able to say something sounded truly original because most bands have influences of other bands in them and it’s very easy to “Well, this sounds like this only not” or “It’s like this mixed with this”. The fact is, with Boom Said Thunder, you cannot pinpoint them to an exact style or sound and what’s even more remarkable is that you can’t just throw this band into a “sounds like” category either.
Well, the first thing you’ll hear in this music is very fuzzy guitar. I love distortion, but this goes way beyond what I’m used to hearing, and so I’m completely in love with how they do it. It’s like going from watching your music teacher in fifth grade play the electric guitar to see Hendrix—you just get kicked up such a notch you don’t quite know what to do or make of it.
