Mono Grande - _Mono Grande_
by: Alain M. Gaudrault (3 out of 5)
Scored this one in Aberdeen in a small CD/vinyl store on Belmont Street. One of the band members works in the store and wanted for me to listen to his work. While I suppose this could be considered heavy by some, it's more in the so-called alternative vein of rock/metal. And for what it is, it's a decent effort. While somewhat hit-and-miss in nature, it sports the occasional Prong-drenched riff and vocal combo. Vocals are in the vein of Helmet, albeit more melodious, and generally happier. The Nirvana-loving bass-heavy grooves and punkish touches give it the 90s alternative feel overall, but despite that, there are some half-way decent tunes. If you're into "hard alternative" and happen upon a copy of this Scottish band's self-produced affair, you could do worse than to pick it up.
