Forest of the Night
by Dan Bernal
This collection of early ’80s-ish rock tunes nestles itself somewhere between The Cranberries and Joan Jett, slightly burned-out chick-fronted grind with less hope in their lyrics than heart. The tempo, keys, and style vary little from song to song, but at least they don’t diversify your ass into confusion. Themes include ancient Greek deities, an impending ice age, and the titular Forest of the Night… with Dio nowhere in sight (at his size, that’s not really their fault). Any set of boobs on stage is a step up, stand on these and the view will improve.
