4Mag Nitrous - High Road

4Mag Nitrous
High Road

I have never ventured in the Southern East areas of the US, but I bet that once I will take that trip, which I hope any time soon, putting on earphones and listening to the local Metal representations, the experience would become two times intense. Through their next in line release, in the body of a four track EP entitled “High Road”, I got to know the Metallic truckers, 4MAG NITROUS. I just wish that I had got to know them sooner, yet nowadays, the options are limitless.

Though their production values on this EP are closer to raw than a cleaner mix, I had the feeling that any step, every measure, was meant to be. It felt natural listening to such grease and dirt in the band’s music, a kind of music that initially was meant for the local folk, yet crossed over into newly found territories.

4MAG NITROUS are the real thing in Southern Metal, and not just because they had time to perfect their methods, going on almost two decades, but mainly due to their tough attitude. Showing influences of BLACK SABBATH, CLUTCH, MONSTER MAGNET, with gutsy MOTORHEADish leather and spikes, it left a mark. The band puked their fair share of meaty swinging grooves, blasting at will with a wicked form of steel bound rhythm section along with sharing neat guitar work that crosses decades of Rock / Metal music and that is no soloing shy. Everything is American made, no more and no less, not leaving any stone unturned.

Bikers, truckers of the South, I am sorry fellas, but I believe that other Metalheads should be in for the party, once 4MAG NITROUS are inviting. With such tunes as the groovy maniacal “Dragnut” and the catalyst of this story, “One Shot”, which screams Redneck with its strong riffery, the Europeans could have a ball in the pit.

Thank you boys for this fine show of force, now head back for a full length please.
