by Twenty Two Hundred
(Tonequake Records)

POWERFUL with ATTITUDE! Those are the word's that I would use to describe the music that I experienced listening to 'Carnaval De Vénus', the powerful debut release from the Australian based rock band, Twenty Two Hundred. Ball busting powerful rock, that's what you'll get here. No fillers! All good stuff from beginning to end. Theirs is a sound that explodes with power and passion and it translates with authority on tracks like,  '7x Down', "Got It Bad", "The Rat",  "Hitman", the down and dirty swagger of "Stone Cold" and the powerhouse mover, "Why Can't You Love Me". The whole album is rock solid! All killer no filler. Frontman Tony Cardenas-Montana possesses a lungful wail that stretches the corners of classic rock and soul simultaneously while the band, Marcus Kain - Guitar,  Mark Wells - Bass, Vocals, Guitar, and Drew Alig - Drums throw down meaty rhythms and grooves of thick edgy electric guitar. Good Rock IS still alive!!!!  Twenty Two Hundred proves it! The music is well written and played ,and they are clearly one of the best new bands that rock music has to offer in recent years. 'Carnaval De Vénus' from start to finish this is one of the most complete and compelling albums I have heard in the last few years. Fans of pure in your face, no holds bar raw passioned filled rock and roll will dig what Twenty Two Hundred have to offer. The band's Carnaval De Vénus' is guaranteed to rock your socks off! Turn it up loud and get lost in their sound!  Who says rock is dead? - Highly Recommended

  1. The first time I heard these guys was during Slash concert in Singapore. They totally blew me away ever since! That groovy bluesy hard rock... totally awesomeness! They blew me away even more with this Carnval De Venus! Like what is in the review... No filler what so ever! From start to finish! The guitar meltdown, the insane bass lines, the heart pumping drumming and that soulful vocals... totally rock my world! Rock is never dead... never was and never will be (with Twenty Two Hundred around of cos)!!!
