Coliseum (Level Plane)

By: Mike SOS

Somewhat stoner rock-y with a whole lot of underground influences, peppered with the noise rock tendencies of both the old school L.A. punk and the NYC Lower East Side early '90s revival is the best way to describe the crusty punk of Louisville, KY's Coliseum. With a vocal style that employs as much barking like a drill sergeant as it does screams and grunts, the 12-tracks which comprise the self-titled album radiate the kind of chaos that Motorhead and Zeke are famous for. This quartet is heavy not to be trendy, but instead out of love of aggressive music, and it really shines through on tracks like "This Mind Locked Inside This Body" and "Pretty Situation". With amps cranked way beyond 10 and the true embodiment of dirty, raucously heavy rock 'n' roll propelling the aural assault, Coliseum will reaffirm your faith that rock music is still alive and well, despite the shit pumped through the mainline.
