Album Review: Biters - "Electric Blood" (5/10)

bitersoriginalAptly named, this Atlanta-based band seems 
to think that any bunch of guys with dyed 
black hair can pick up instruments and 
draw interest by copping looks from vintage 
Ramones LP covers and attempting to be 
the next Slade. It takes more than that to
 compel an audience, or gain some cred.
 Simply referencing ancient glam/punk rock with song titles such as “1975” and “Space Age Wasteland” does not do credit to that great era of music if you can’t pull it off musically. The band’s sound does resemble a Thin Lizzy cover band, full of misdirected testosterone, but without the songwriting chops. Just one pretty good song here, “Time to Bleed.” – Brett Bush
