Power Chord Passion Tuesday, December 26, 2017 Slow Burning Car – Defection (2017) Written by Mike Yoder, posted by blog admin Defection, Slow Burning Car’s fourth album, is a ten song collection aggressively putting this Los Angeles band over as one of the more cutting edge rock/metal acts working today. The band’s four musicians are obviously extraordinarily talent and play without any obvious ego trips, but they are clearly talented songwriters as well who thread influences into their work that further enhance their penchant for the personal and physical. These are songs capable of engaging listeners mentally and, naturally, physically. The muscular movement of the band’s music conforms to certain expectations we have about this style, but they prove themselves equally effective...

Thursday, December 28, 2017Slow Burning Car – Defection (2017) Written by Raymond Burris, posted by blog admin Slow Burning Car offers up a 10-track, hard rockin’ groove fest on their 4th record Defection. This twin guitar, energetic group mixes grand melodies with a rough, unpolished edge that is sure to ignite a spirited little mosh-pit at one of the band’s many concerts. With airplay on 130 stations, this Los Angeles bred quartet has made quite an impact since their inception. The aesthetic Slow Burning Car settles on is as follows; not too heavy but certainly not too light. Songs toss and turn between punk-fed melodies with a lot of pop phrasings and white knuckle guitar heroics where...

Signatures In Time Friday, December 22, 2017 Slow Burning Car – Defection (2017) Written By Frank McClure On album #4 Defection, Slow Burning Car prove that they are an awesome, original lost 90s artifact that would have been at home touring with Handsome, Failure and Self-Titled era Foo Fighters had they been around during that musical heyday. This record is 10 quality tracks with nary any filler and some well-composed forays into differing hard rock grooves. Slow Burning Car is game for artful experimentation and they don’t stay fenced in by genre or stylistic limitation. Full of thundering drums, power-chord heavy riffs and dirty distortion, “Alpha Duplicor” kicks the album off with a bang. Multi-tracked vocal...

Los Angeles’ based hard rockers Slow Burning Car are back with their 4th release, Defection. Featuring a thick, chunky sound with an emphasis on riffs and infectious choruses, the group draw influences from 90s guitar rock, pop punk and as a result end up with a tough grooving attack that’s somewhere in the ballpark of Nirvana, Chevelle, the Foo Fighters, Incubus and even a little bit of Helmet’s staccato crunch. Opener “Alpha Duplicor” strikes fast and fierce with locked-on snare fills, throbbing bass lines and the twin guitar assault of Jesse Damon and Tommy Marcel. The explosive, granite thick riffs present driving grooves that whip into frenetic leads, harmonic counterpoints and wraparound solos that keep...

Written by Laura Dodero, posted by blog admin Hailing from Los Angeles, CA; Slow Burning Car are a quirky quartet that mesh various different hard rock influences into an album that delivers an experience that’s best heard as an uninterrupted whole. The band’s fourth disc Defection may start off textbook enough with “Alpha Duplicor’s” teeth-gnashing, hard rock guitar riffs, angst-ridden yet melodic vocals and throbbing percussion that’s a storm of snare/tom fill transitions but Slow Burning Car switches style on a dime and never lingers on the same musical turf for too long. A smorgasbord of sound awaits the listener at Defection’s every corner turn. Whirling dervish guitar leads, crisp punk riffing, steadfast drumming and smooth vocal...
