SEDUCTION, THE - You Catch Fire - CD - Mechanical Pig Records - 2015

You Catch Fire catches fire from the start, with a fat rock sound and a tasty guitar lick.

The Seduction plays in your face, fervent and proud. The band's music has a classic heavy rock and roll drive (not unlike the retro rock of Wolfmother or Witchcraft) that blends the fast tempos of Motorhead with the guitar tones of Black Sabbath, in a more wailing and rollicking fashion. Coming to think of it, The Seduction almost sounds like a punk version of Iron Maiden.

The songs are effectively engaging: they are raw yet with clear melodic hooks; they are fun yet in no way ridiculous; their rhythm is driving; and there's enough character to the songs to keep you alert throughout. "Flavor Of The Weak," for example, benefits from its suspended, ska-like midsection, while "The Flood" has sick boogie-rock vibe into it prior to unveiling with nearly epic proportions. (8.2/10)
