CD REVIEW: S/T by Foundry


S/T by Foundry
(Foundry Records)

The Sin City rockers known as the Foundry come out swinging for the fences with their self titled debut. Powered by Kelly Keeling (vocals), Marc Brattin (drums), James Fucci (guitar), Scott Griffin (bass) w/special guest Stoney Curtis (guitar solos). The recording was engineered  by Matt Breunig (The Killers) and mixed by Steve Thompson (Guns N' Roses, Metallica, KISS, Soundgarden). The Foundry are a modern hard rock band but are definitely and heavily influenced by the classics. Their songs are, tight, well written, and well-played!! Kelly Keeling's vocals is one of the best in hard rock, and James Fucci guitar work along with Stoney Curtis' smoking guitar licks are on point coupled with a beast of a rhythm section in the form of  bassist Scott Griffin and drummer, Marc Brattin. From the moment you hit play and the ballsy rocker, "Blinded" fires out of your speakers the band have your undivided attention. From there on your senses will be thoroughly ROCKED with tracks like, the adrenaline pumping,"Mind Radio", and the down and dirty grooves of "Get Over It", "Rolling Stoned", "Hell Raiser" and the party anthem, "Vegas Baby!" Giant guitar driven monster riffs served up on a bed of crushing grooves with melodic vocals and big hooks. Basically, NO FRILLS RIFF ROCK!  The bottoms line: The Foundry have released an album that is loaded with well thought out change ups, crushing grooves that have ton's of texture & melodic chorus lines & very original music. Straight-up balls-out rock and roll, this is required listening. Crank up your speakers, sit back, spark a bat, and let the music tell the rest of the story. - Highly Recommended
