Calamus - _The Road Trax_
(Independent, 1998)
by: Pedro Azevedo (5 out of 10)
Although the Kyuss-influenced wave that has been growing lately does not particularly interest me, this German band does show some skill on this MCD -- enough to keep me listening, as both songs flow reasonably well. As far as originality goes, things could be worse; although the instrumental side brings nothing really new and isn't anything special, the vocals are somewhat different from the usual in this genre. The major problem with this MCD is that it only has two tracks, totaling less than nine minutes, as the band didn't have studio time to record any more. As a result, this seems to be more of a demo pressed on CD and played by an already somewhat experienced band than an actual commercial release. The production is average, and Calamus perform well enough; could be a band to watch in the future, for those interested in this genre.
