The band members of alternative rock band Attik Door originate from the former USSR, but now live in San Francisco. They combine a variety of musical styles to create a unique rock feel. They are inspired by a range of artists including Led Zeppelin and System of a Down. Check out my review of their album ‘Never in Agreement’ here:
Never in Agreement begins with the rockin’ and infectious ‘Posers’ and moves on to the fast moving, funky and explicit ‘Bleed’- a song with attitude!
My personal favourite track is track 3 ‘The Front’. There are slight echoes of Muse in the way the band skilfully blend a variety of musical styles. Lead singer Liana Tovmasyan sings this song with true raw passion and her vocals truly shine here.
Track 4 ‘California’ is clever how it starts off slowly and builds up, reminicent of No Doubt/Red Hot Chili Peppers in its style. Track 5 ‘Snorting Headlines’ demonstrates once more Liana’s strong vocals and the amazing ability of the band, it is a faster paced song.
Track 6 ‘Cyber World’ is a heavy rock tune, slightly reminiscent of Linkin Park in style. Track 7 ‘Kosmos’ is another fast paced song, sung with Liana’s conviction. Track 8 ‘Spinning Out’ has more of a funky, almost reggae beat to it, it is interesting how it varies in musical style.
Track 9 ‘Moody’ is not for the faint-hearted! Although I’m not personally a fan of songs containing bad language, I have to admit it kinda works here and made me smile!
The final track ‘Time’ has a very long interesting musical introduction and is very dramatic and interesting lyrically. You can imagine it being used as an epic movie soundtrack. It is a great choice to end the album on.
If you enjoy rock music with attitude and are seeking some originality, I recommend you check Attik Door out!
