Silver Grenade - Will The Peace Remain? Award winner

Silver Grenade
Will The Peace Remain?
by CJ "Music God" Plain at 25 March 2013, 11:32 AM

Hailing from Perth, Western Australia, is the band SILVER GRENADE, a four piece modern hard rock outfit that is bringing plenty of punch on their impressive debut record, "Will The Peace Remain?"

The record starts off with the great "Intro" that has some tasty bass playing by Nick. This immediately launches us into the song, "The Escapist". The band is cooking on all four burners here and you really get a great idea of who good of a vocalist that Scotty Doo is. There plenty of gang style vocals as well to carry the melody.

"Walk Away" is another killer tune that Scotty really carries. The guitars are great sounding with a mix of acoustic and electric guitars. Again, the bass groove is huge. "Cold And Frozen" starts with some tasty 80s influenced playing before launching into a modern rock attack. The drums are really big on this track and really propel this tune.

The melodies of this record are amazing and the overall playing of the guys is super tight. You can tell that this is a band that not only loves playing together but gets lots of practice doing it. These guys have managed to come up with a musical attack that is a very modern sounding affair with plenty of nods to classic hard rock and metal on here.

This is a great record with a great mixture of styles and sounds. The production is clean and sounds really big. The lyrics are interesting and while not earth shattering in context, they hold your attention and aren't steeped in clichés like much of today's music.

I'd highly recommend this to anyone that is a fan of modern hard rock. This is a very good record and these guys show a ton of potential here. Can't wait to see what they do in the future.
