I raved about this band?s EP last year and has since then been waiting for this full length album to come,on Sept.20 The Militia Group releases Cartel?s long awaited debut "Chroma" and you better get a hold of a copy if you think Foo Fighters and The Ataris is a great combination. Yeah,Cartel takes the best out of rock,punk and powerpop - then they mix it all in their Chroma blender and voila! The result is straight ahead,catchy and edgy rock that will make you happy like a child on christmas eve. Only one song is taken from their EP and it?s a re-recorded version of the splendid "Luckie St" but why include more songs from "The ransom EP" when the band puts out so many great new songs like the anthemic "Burn this city",the possible hit contender "Honestly" or the label?s favorite "The minstrel?s prayer" that sounds like a horseride in the highlands - epic rock ladies and gents! Cartel from Atlanta knows how to rock with a big R!
