Album Review: "Remind" by Captain Crimson

Remind is the third offering from Swedish band Captain Crimson and their first on the Small Stones label. 

Set for release next week, there's nothing small about the sound you'll find here.  

Right out of the gate with "Ghost Town" you get pounding drums, guitar and vocals.

They're somewhat reminiscent of the Red Hot Chili Peppers melding into a heavier metal groove that provides the undertone of the entire collection. 

There's a lot of that funky sort of Texas blues in Captain Crimson's sound too, and it gives their tracks a boozy flow that keeps you wanting more.

Driving bass and up-tempo drum beats are peppered amid a kind of grinding 6-string weaving in and out every song on Remind

I think the band does a great job evoking the sounds of both classic rock and heavy metal of the '80's and '90's. 

Much of the album expertly mixes the swagger of Stevie Ray Vaughan with the speed and flavor of Mötley Crüe, especially on the title track and through the second half of the playlist.

Captain Crimson should appeal to all fans fans of classic rock, hard rock, and metal. 

With luck they'll be touring this new album in the US soon and it will be a show not to be missed. 

You can pre-order Remind digitally, on CD, and on limited edition vinyl HERE!
