Stone Gods – Start Of Something EP

Stone Gods 1It’s been a long time since “The Darkness” faded off into the rock backdrop, leaving a trail of annoyingly catchy hits and images of a naked Justin Hawkins burned into our memory. If you remember that Justin was joined by his brother Dan in the band, you may also remember that after the split, Dan went off with the other members to form the rock outfit “Stone Gods”. Justin on the other hand has tried the same formula again with “Hot Leg”, but that’s a review for another time.

Anyway, back to “Stone Gods”. Distancing them from the glam rock image that made “The Darkness” the butt of a few jokes, Dan’s new band have just about established their new sound, like a flag on the music scene. Sounding like a raw “Def Leppard” with a punk edge, it’s not hard to like their new EP “Start of Something”. Uplifting and driving, the title song follows the typical power ballad pattern that has worked for a lot of bands in the past.

Whilst not being as rocky as their previous efforts, this song still does the job of making you sway along. Included in the EP, there are chilled acoustic versions of 3 songs from their debut album. A nice little taster that will keep you going until the next album
