The last few years have been good for rock from the dark side. Sure there's plenty of polite middle-of-the-road so-called 'rock' out there but equally there's been a resurgence of bands with the bass slung low the eyeliner pencil on overdrive and the threads mostly leaning to black.
The Cure are back in fashion John Cale Sonic Youth and even Metallica are all acknowledged as Godfathers of this dark arty rock and here they are rubbing shoulders with break-through bands like The Killers The Bravery and Interpol. The 'Later' studio has provided a welcome pit-stop for these bands as they move between the dark halls and the festivals and this collection rocks as hard as you like amps up to max drummers who know how to hit a kit and a sense of electricity in the air.
From Green Day to Nick Cave with all dark storms and big personalities in between (take a bow Courtney Love Bobby Gillespie and Perry Farrell) here's 'Later...Even Louder'.
