5 Out Of 5 METAL Fists!


MACH22 – The self-released debut album, Sweet Talk Intervention, from Philadelphia’s MACH22 launched on May 6th and it’s a whiz-bang, dandy of a good-times Hard Rockin’ listen! With so many young Hard Rock bands not igniting my adrenaline these last few years, it’s refreshing to exclaim that: MACH22 – Sweet Talk Intervention is Stone’s Metal Pick Of The Day!

There’s truly no moments on this album that are remotely near average. Between vocalist Lamont Caldwell and lead guitarist Sebastian LeBar, with the rest of this ultra-talented band in-between, Sweet Talk Intervention is a Hard Rock album I can listen to repeatedly without feeling like I’ve had enough. With BIG guitars, soulful and truly memorable vocals, coupled with body inducing GROOVES, this is an album and band that YOU NEED to get your senses wrapped around!

MACH22 is a band that has undeniable eye-popping Hard Rockin’ chemistry and it’s all proof positive from my listening to their debut album. MACH22 stands above the crowded field of up and coming Hard Rock bands due their unique ability to bridge the gap between Classic Rock and Hard Rock of 2014. There is so much relevance and Hard Rock substance happening within the songs on this album that it’s actually bewildering to me. My favorite song? Try the entire album. Metal be thy name. – Stone
