SONIC GLORY by Ozone Mama
(Author's Edition)

Hungarian rock band, Ozone Mama are back and sounding better than ever with their sophomore release, 'Sonic Glory'. Following up their 2010 release, 'The Starship Has Landed'. 'Sonic Glory' has this massive bluesy guitar sound that's so powerful you can almost smell old stacks of vinyl records. Ozone Mama is comprised of Márton Székely (vocals), András Gábor (guitar), Gergely Dobos (bass) and Máté Gulyás (drums).The band's soulful blues influences float casually to the forefront. This is classic rock influenced music but with a varied approach. It has the Zeppelin rhythm layer into it laced with a progressive present day feel. This music is meant to be enjoyed through your surround sound, awesome headphones or on a road trip. The bottom end is fantastic throughout the mix, András Gábor's guitar work is stellar and shows much more dimension than I have heard from him before.  Last, but not least are Márton Székely's vocals. He simply reels you in, his style may remind you of other great singers, but his voice sounds like nobody else. The album doesn't have a weak track on it. You can play it straight from beginning to end without wanting to skip anything. Highlights for me are, "Good Times Roll", the rocking, "Backdoor Man", "Hard Times", "Kings And Rulers" and "Ain't No Place Of Mine". There is a freshness and spark to the songs that give them a magical type quality when the music is coming out of your speakers. The quality of the songs and the song writing are fantastic! All in all. 'Sonic Glory' is one of the better albums I have head this year. If you like Led Zeppelin's first two albums or The Rolling Stones' 'Sticky Fingers'. Then this is the music for you. Ozone Mama's 'Sonic Glory' is one that is not to be missed. There is an urgency and fire to the music. I would recommend to all classic rock fans out there. If you aren’t, it’s time to get educated. Highly Recommended
