The Jolts - Haute Voltage CS ~100 COPIES PRESSED!
The Jolts - Haute Voltage CS. It would be easy to dismiss The Jolts as Vancouver’s answer to Turbonegro. But for rockers that have grown weary of Turbonegro's abundant filler and cutesy lyrics as of late, The Jolts should prove a suplemental major kick in the ass. Energy abounds as vocalist Joey Blitzkrieg pontificates sermons of debauchery over this collection of twin-guitar, ass-shaking anthems. The smart execution of power chord mania in “DXM” and “Drop Dead Girl” could get a party started faster than a surprise keg dropped inside of a Dwarves show. Throughout this album, riffs snake into harmonies and wah-wah leads zoom to the front of the mix, eventually falling away into pulsing, groovy basslines. The splendidly titled “Lament for the Death Rider” brags a decidedly Hellacopters-like action rock vibe and the rest of the album is equally as good. If charisma and solid tunes were currency, these guys could buy Las Vegas. Recommended. THESE ARE HAND NUMBERED OUT OF 100 COPIES!
