The Long Dark Road’s self-titled release is due out April 8th, and is the focus of this week’s ‘Break’. This four-piece freak-show from Toronto is reminiscent of System of a Down and Propagandhi.  With songs in the 8-9 minute range, these guys are like Punk-Metal on steroids. From the first track “Tragedy of the Commons”, these neighbors to the North come out swinging –although the real jams (at least for me) start at track two “I Will Follow” where TLDR’s influences become readily apparent. If you didn’t see the cover you may very well think you’re hearing a new ‘System’ album –which is great, if you’re a fan. I can’t say I heard anything terribly original, however these fellas absolutely have audio-adrenaline on lock. This is a great ‘getting ready to skate’ album. Here’s the link to their album on Soundcloud: As always, you are the best judge of what you like. Give it a listen and let us know what you think. Thanks for reading (& listening), see you here next time!
