The supergroup: a coming collectively of nice minds, or a doomed try at combining cred to vent unused track concepts and redirect cashflow? Relying on who makes up your all-star undertaking, a supergroup can go on to turn out to be one among your most vital shops as an artist. And provided that the brand new band third Secret counts Nirvana‘s Krist Novoselic, Soundgarden‘s Kim Thayil, and Pearl Jam‘s Matt Cameron amongst its ranks, one wonders if it has the potential to turn out to be a giant deal for all concerned.
Rounding out the roster of third Secret are Giants In The Timber vocalists Jennifer Johnson and Jillian Raye and guitarist Jon “Bubba” Dupree, previously of Void. The band have quietly launched their self-titled album, which you’ll hear under, and have launched an internet site that mainly seems like an Angelfire web page.
The report instantly makes us consider Canadian occult doom crew Blood Ceremony for some purpose. Perhaps it’s Johnson and Raye’s vocals, or the way in which the band swing between jangling acoustic stuff and syrupy guitar heaviness. The massive distinction is that third Secret exchange Blood Ceremony’s stiff autumn breeze with a sizzling desert wind. It looks like good music to drive by means of the wasteland of mid-California to. Delicate-pack smokes are concerned, locals are tickled if disgusted. However now we gotta marvel, as we write about it, is that this the album everybody’s listening to at the start of the horror film? As a result of the sort of vibe I’m describing is often that of individuals in a film who don’t know they’re going to take a throwing axe to the T-zone afterward. So possibly that is homicide music in spite of everything.
You may stream the report under. Whether or not third Secret morphs into the one most vital rock act of the following yr, or whether or not we get stoned to this album on 4/20 after which sort of neglect about it, nicely, that continues to be to be seen (however for the report, these are the one two choices).
