Thadeus Gonzalez

Thadeus Gonzalez

Review by Gary Hill
I reviewed a previous disc from Thadeus Gonzalez. I remember liking it. I like this one, too. Not everything here is metal, but almost everything has some metal in it. In some ways comparisons to King's X aren't out of the question. There is quite a decent range here, meaning that most listeners will likely find something here that they will like.
 
This review is available in book format (hardcover and paperback) in Music Street Journal: 2016  Volume 6 at lulu.com/strangesound.
Track by Track Review
Diamond High

Some noise brings this into being. It powers out from there to some screaming hot metal.

The Surgeons
A modern metal based tune, this is a solid rocker.
A Murder When I Sing

This is more stripped back. It has a real punk rock sensibility to it. There are some cool bits of Americana on some of the guitar parts. This is a bit odd, but it works reasonably well. It rocks out like crazy later, too. This adds some definite variety to the set.

Bite It
Another screaming hot rocker, this has some jazzy elements at play. It's very thrash oriented, too. This is noisy, powerful and just plain cool. This does get a parental advisory.
Silver Inside

Alternative rock meets metal on this screamer.

Bat Snake Tiger
Modern metal, alternative rock, punk and more merge on this screaming hot tune.
It's a Sure Thing
This is another scorching hot rocker. It has a lot of metal and a lot of grunge built into it.
A Real Class Act
Another hard rocking tune, this is a bit more in the alternative rock vein. It has some mellower movements in opposition to some of the other songs. Still, there is plenty of meat here, too.
Stand on Ceremony
This is more of a modern alternative rock cut. It makes me think of a cross between King's X and the Foo Fighters.
