"Mortice"

Here is a review of the album "Mayhem" by WSVN radio

The opening track, "Time Is A Place" can easily fit today's Alternative Rock format, comparing to the likes of King's X, yet with a darker hard rock mood. "Sunset" and the title track was the single originally sent to WSVNRadio, as the album itself was soon to be released. "Sunset" has a great Classic Rock sound, and an obvious choice for promoting on Volume 5. The title track is another good rocker, and easily fits the hard rock/Alternative Rock styles.
A mix of the old and new best describes "Son Of Sam", where the classic rock style of the 1970s is easily merged with today's Alternative Rock. 1970s accoustic, even a bit of Progressive will have fans of 1970s rock enjoying this particular song.
"Rest In Peace" brings back the 1970s band Deep Purple with the organ solos, likewise the hard rock guitars easily fits today's Alternative Hard Rock. "Road Fever" maybe the least favorite, as it has a different approach than the standard hard rock. Likewise, "Confusion" is just a bit softer in spots, yet the vocal harmonies make a good standout. Metallica comes to mind on "Purgatory" with it's driving guitars as a major standout.
Like many hard rock bands before them, they all have a soft-ballad. "Forever" shows the accoustic unplugged side of Mortice, and is a wonderful song to listen to. "I Don't Have The Time" is another easy-fitter on today's Alternative Hard Rock radio formats; and can be compared to the likes of many popular Alt. Rock bands of today. The closing tune, "8:30 Train" is another good rocker, as such the title track.
Mayhem is a great album for the hard rock fans of the 1970s and fans of today's Alternative Rock. It has comparisons to the classic rock of the 1970s, and to those of today's popular bands. Bernie Shaw's vocals is just as powerful and energetic as his years with Uriah Heep. The guitar work is truly exceptional as well. This album will inspire repeated listens, and enjoyed more and more. With the experience of veteran rockers from bands such as Nazareth and Uriah Heep, it's no wonder that this new band will have many rock fans listening to Mayhem and wanting to hear more. - WSVN radio
