One of Maryland's finest treasures, Lionize, are back with a new album, and holy hell! They spare no punches whatsoever. Steeped in super heavy, groovy, neck-breaking, riff and Hammond-based rock with tongue-in-cheek, as well as critical lyrics to match. Nothing new as such, well apart from one little thing...'Nuclear Soul' surpasses anything Lionize has ever done before. And that's no small accomplishment!
The quirky, funny and aptly titled ‘The Mad Scientist Of Sunshine’ with a mix of all kinds of styles, leads into the title track, ‘Nuclear Soul’. 70’s sounding in every way you look at it, the apocalyptic feel displayed in a slower tempo where an eerie organ guides us in this dark yet fantastic composition. Closer ‘Blindness To Danger’ knocks everything out of the park as Lionize hammer the nails in. This is the stuff I grew up on but in a fresh amazing take. If my body wasn’t already messed up from slamming around my house listening to this master piece, this song would do me in. And I wouldn’t be happier.
