SHADOW REBELS: "On the Ride" - Reviewed By Rocka Rolla ! Check it out here at this link: http://rockarollazine.blogspot.com/2021/11/shadow-rebels-on-ride-2021-another-side.html
This beautiful "profession" of "journalist" has allowed me to review bands from almost all over the world, literally, but never in the almost 20 years of existence of the RRWZ had I received a band from Israel. So I mark on the map a new country! In a move, this band bought me from the cover. There's a remnant of the bands of the '50s that really caught my attention. But going into the music, which is what matters to us, the style of Shadow Rebels has nothing to do with its cover art, since here we are invaded by a more than captivating mixture of setentero rock, grunge, funk and pop, with a raw and retro sound, making the album easily transformed into a work that did not displease Beck fans, Spacehog, The Wallflowers and so many other bands that knew how to shine in the 90's, as well as those of The Police, but beware, I do not compare them, I just say that they left me a certain taste in my ear. Simple, aggiornado, without stridency, with climates and good lyrics, "On the ride" does not stand out but does not disappoint either. If you are looking for some calm and good music in this controversial world, this album will captivate you from beginning to end. - Rocka Rolla
Release Date: September 17, 2021
FFO: Stone Temple Pilots, Alice In Chains, Pearl Jam
The third full-length studio album by Israeli Progressive Post-Grunge Rock band.
Shadow Rebels decided to approach the recording of the new album in the most Grunge style. Unlike the previous release, which was recorded in a pure studio style, with many overdubs and individual recordings of the musicians, this time all the musicians entered the studio and simultaneously played all the songs one by one, in one day, on a tape recorder.
There are a lot of powerful and fast numbers, Stoner riffs, and heartfelt ballads about the fragility of life. No pathos, only self-irony, despair, reflections on the eternal: about enemies, about friends, about God and the loss of faith, about hope in times, when no place for hope. Everything is about the crazy 21st century, in which the heroes of the songs seem to be through no fault of their own. And as a result - sincere, bordering on nudity, uncompromising Post-Grunge. Deep and simple at the same time.
