Label: Rockyard 2012
Review by Kimmo Toivonen

This is interesting. Rockyard play energetic, modern rock, yet one element of their music reminds me of a classic rock legend: vocalist Matt Warry-Smith seems to be channeling the spirit of Gary Moore! Some of the higher notes sound uncannily like Gary, even though the music sounds completely different to his material. Eerie.

Out of the four songs, the first three are all rather decent uptempo tracks. The last track "Wandering" does just what the title says, it doesn't seem to go anywhere.

All in all, this EP isn't too bad at all. There's still room for improvement when it comes too the hooks, but somehow the relentless energy of the band makes up for it.
