Following is a review of our EP First Stone from a music blog out of The Netherlands called Strutter Zine go check them out for more music coverage!
Andalusia Rose ‘First stone Vinyl LP’ (Glimmerhawk Music/USA Import)
“Out of the San Francisco Bay Area comes Andalusia Rose, a band formed around Wendy Lee Gadzuk – Vocals, guitar, Jeff Vengeance – Bass/Guitar and Paul Jarvis – Drums. They have been influenced by everything between the 1960s and 1990s, from rock to metal to blues to delta to gospel to whatever comes to mind musically speaking which was created in those decades. They were kind enough to sent me their 2nd EP First stone on vinyl and I must say that the included music is indeed rerminding me a lot of bands from the long but never forgotten golden era of music. I can mention all kinds of bands, because there are quite a lot similarities notable, such as Jefferson Airplane, Shocking Blue, Devil’s Blood, 70s Heart and such, but Andalusia Rose is creating their own kind of music in which rock, gospel, doom metal and blues are melted into one exciting sound. The vinyl record sounds very good and especially side B is exciting and offering some great material. Destroyer is by far the finest song on the album, a superb piece of classic rock meets blues meets doom metal as if Blue Oyster Cult, Jefferson Airplane and Black Sabbath had a child that started this wonderful band called Andalusia Rose. Although most of the songs are rock orientated, there are also influences from the already mentioned gospel, blues and even soul genres. This makes the band a very interesting act to check out and I am quite positive that in the future we can welcome even stronger release of this band.
