SLAVE TO THE SYSTEM S/T
Spitfire Records (2006)

Slave to the System feature two members of Brother Cane Damon Johnson and Roman Glick along with two members of Queensryche Scott Rockenfield and Kelly Gray.

They blend very well together and listening to this album they sound like a band well into their career rather than their debut album. Opener' Stigmata' features one of the catchiest riffs I have heard in ages and is a definite airplay bound tune. Beats Velvet Revolver at their own game!

Elsewhere the music, particularly the vocals, reminds you of Audioslve check out the riffs and impassioned vocals on 'Ruby Wednesday' or 'Ragdoll'.

The band also pull of heartfelt acoustic based ballads with ease like 'Abyss' a simply wonderful listen. 'Live This Life' echoes latter day Queensryche, although the band are no copycats forging their own driving rock sound.

A very accomplished and highly enjoyable debut release, which will hopefully prove not to be just a 'one-off' project. Those who love Audioslave and Velvet Revolver will love this slab of modern hard rock.
