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)
