King Mastino- Medusa CD. It’s been nearly two years since King Mastino’s released their excellent 'Sail Away' and they’re back with the sequal to that album entitled ‘Medusa’, their fifth studio album. King Mastino’s recipe has always been simple: guitar-bass-drums with cadenced chords and flickering guitar riffs playing burly Rock ‘n Roll that strikes from the heart. Influentially they have a pretty cool sound that mixes the riff-heavy, guitar fire power of Radio Birdman and Sonic's Rendezvous Band with the full throttle action rock sounds of bands like the Hellacopters, Gluecifer and the Humpers. The tunes on ‘Medusa’ are very well written and the guitar playing is on fire, as usual, capped with their road weary gravelly singer whose voice works well with the desolate nautical themes that he’s singing about. King Mastino has been going strong for nearly a decade now and they just keep getting better with age. These are strictly limited to 200 copies world wide with amazing eye popping alternate art by Ricarrdo Bucchioni and come housed in a nice looking fold out CD digipack. Import from Canada.
