Diesel - _Diesel_
by: Adrian Bromley (4 out of 5)
I was blown away by the intensity and sheer power of the vocals on this three-song demo. A.J. Cavalier's vocals are very similar to the styles of new Voivod screamer Eric Forrest and Pro Pain's Gary Meskil - and that is a good thing. Both of those vocalists have somewhat unique styles that cater to their bands' particular style and format. The same goes for Cavalier's singing style, as it works well with the rest of Diesel's music. This stuff is heavy shit that tears at you from several angles: rough vocals, juggernaut riffs, and highly intensive adrenaline bursts. Hearing this Los Angeles quartet's second demo tape, I am convinced that there are bands out there nowadays putting hard work into what they do. While Diesel's take on metal music may not be innovative or new (it's similar in style to old Prong, Pro Pain, and Voivod), it's the attitude of the music that makes it all seem so new once again. I am eagerly waiting to see where the band takes its music in the next little while.
