Review

Have you ever wondered what Queensryche guitarist Michael Wilton is doing these days?,well the answer is here with his new band Soulbender-you could say he?s finally out of Chris DeGarmo?s long shadow since DeGarmo was the one who took most of the credit of the guitarwork in Queensryche but Wilton needed this band to prove that he?s just as talented as a guitarplayer and composer as DeGarmo.
After 2 years of hard work,Wilton and his friends Nick Pollock (former lead singer of My Sister?s Machine),Dave Groves-Guitar and Wes Hallam-Drums finally had their testament completed to the world.
Imagine a bluesier version of Queensryche with the strong powerful vocals from Nick Pollock and you?ll have Soulbender,Nick?s voice sounds a bit like a mix of Paul Shortino (Rough Cutt) and John Corabi (Motley Crue,Union)so he gives the music a more 70?s hardrock feel to it but with Wilton?s axework-the music reminds a lot of Queensryche darker style,just listen to "Three towers" and "Clockwork and compass"
Soulbender aren?t as progressive as Geoff Tate and Co,they are more in the same style as Jibe,My Precious Days and Dropbox so if you want some prime time hard rock-go and get Wilton?s Soulbender.
The cool whiskey rocker "Prime time" gets you in the mood right away.
