Freeload: Avalon, “Avalonian’s Shrine”

July 25, 2008

We picked Avalon's 4 Gospels For 2 Testaments off the recycle pile solely on the strength of it being the only new Japanese promo we've gotten in a long ass time and we felt we owed them at least a listen for their shipping expenses. One of Avalon's members also wears a blonde wig on his face on the back photo which is also always a plus. It turns out such simple reductions can occasionally lead to good music. "Avalonian's Shrine" is the lead-off song on the album and reminds us a little bit of the lighter Justice times combined with the high-NRG of Sweden's Slagsmålsklubben. It's also just kind of fun for a Friday afternoon to find out about a group of Tokyo dudes who jam like this. Pick up their EP at their MySpace.
