William Herd (guitars, vocals, keyboards) and Brad Lewellyn on drums are the one-two wallop that comprises Portland Oregon’s BROODING HERD. The heaviness of this band’s new EP, Rewired, should be enjoyed by Metal and Hard Rock fans world-wide! From large hints of Black Sabbath like atmosphere (thanks to the guitar solos, riffs and bass) united with a Clutch feel of pounding rhythm, BROODING HERD are as tight and crisp as the most polished of any major label Heavy Rock bands out there today. I am amazed this is an underground band that recorded this underground album. Seriously. That’s my opinion and I’m not bullshitting for fun here.

The five songs on this EP are: Rewired, Cryptic Verses, Leech, Greed Machine and Crawl. Each song plays out at 6 minutes plus, save for the title track which is 5 plus minutes. BROODING HERD are light years from Extreme Metal and still their Heavy Rock/Metal has plenty of power-packed muscle to leave me saying: Holy Metal Shit! William’s clean vocals are of the bad-ass mold and I honestly can say their unique as all hell. William plays guitar so damn good, there’s nothing else I nor my ears can say. Brad on drums kills it. Greed Machine and Crawl are my 2 favorite songs on this EP; they both flow with a thunderous charge, man.

With some impressive moments of progressiveness and no boring moments to be had, Rewired is as solid a Heavy Rock album I’ve listened to this year. Now go get yourself some at their bandcamp site and buy some real music. Metal Be Thy Name. – Stone
