THE RESURRECTION SORROW
by Morgan Y. Evans
With riffs schooled in bluesy realism yet deep and punishing enough to splinter the consciousness across vast expanses, NYC's The Resurrection Sorrow are set to shake things up. Featuring ex-members of Murphy's Law, After Dark and Malstrom, this relatively new band is made up of scene dogs, dudes hell-bent on following the long and winding road to rock...resurrection. The Resurrection Sorrow play bittersweet sludge reminiscent of Down meets Danzig (Downzig?) with qualities all their own to top off the influences. Occult and obtuse references from vocalist Alex Dementia intertwine with more "regular life" passages any depressed or blue collar rock fan can latch onto, so there's both escapism and the day-to-day offered. All-in-all, this is a strong band that has a real chance if they keep grindin', one of the current crop of NYC bands like Honor Among Thieves, She Wolves, God's Green Earth or Seventh Void, who aren't afraid to keep it on eleven and drown in fuzz heaven. The "Sorrow", as I have deigned to call them, already even have some spiffy artwork from renowned designer Seldon Hunt (Isis, Candiria) in their corner.
The band has recently finished fine-tuning a gargantuan sounding batch of tunes for their debut record Hour Of The Wolf with scene engineer Joe Hogan (Nebula, Atomic Bitchwax) and are gearing up to stay busy getting noticed. If you like aggressive songs that feel right in the gut and massive walls of rolling thunder to envelope your woes (or fuel your cheerful rampages, on the other end of the spectrum), you need to check out The Resurrection Sorrow.
