|Rule .303 is heavy, dark, and crudely recorded and mixed. The band's sound is steeped in modern Dick Dale.|
Picks: Joyride, Black Panties, Snake Charmer, Rumble
Track by Track Review
"Joyride" is a darkened instro with a murky lead guitar and tom tom rumble - loud and brooding, mid tempo, and kinda cool. It's a compelling number that's all about the tom toms and murky danger.
Big whammy chords, a rockabilly beat, and dangerous bass rumble. "Black Panties" is threatening, modern Dick Dale-ish, and heavy. This is risky, like partying with bikers.
Heavy tremolo and a lumbering pace with spaghetti western drama and melody stylings, edged with Dick Dale-isms. "Snake Charmer" is bold and very dark.
Link Wray and his Raymen's "Rumble" is whammified, moody, and fittingly dangerous. The long glissandos give away its Dick Dale version roots.
