KICK ‘Paralysed EP ’ (2002)

A five track taster from the UK rockers from their forthcoming album ‘K3’. There are two new tracks, plus two demos from 1998 and an orchestral mix of ‘Painless’.

‘Paralysed’ kicks things off in fine style mixing melodic rock with feedback vocals and giving it a very dark feel. Reminds of latter day Skin - no bad thing in my book! ‘Electric Storm’ starts with a monster riff to provide a rollicking rocker complete with keyboard backing. It ventures into Tea Party territory on the vocals at times - mystical and ethereal.

The orchestral mix of the ballad ‘Painless’ is superb! Acoustic guitars meld nicely with the string section with vocalist Nick Workman taking centre stage. Onto the two demos - first up ‘Twisted’ is a prime slice of melodic rock in the Bon Jovi mould. The demo of the ballad ‘Say Goodbye’ closes the EP - not a bad tune but ‘Painless’ beats in hands down. The quality of these two demo tracks is of the highest quality so don’t be put off by the demo tag.

As an EP should be - a small snippet of the new album that leaves you wanting to hear more. Fans of melodic rock should give this a try - the tracks ‘Electric Storm’ and ‘Painless’ make the EP worthwhile on their own.
