Album Review

Roaring out of the gate with a gale of noisy, feedback-drenched guitars and thundering drums, Brimstone Howl seem determined to prove they're not just another Nuevo-garage band on their third full-length album, We Came in Peace. And while the songs lean to the fast and loud side and the chord changes are in the classic style, Brimstone Howl add a large portion of spookiness to the formula here, with the Velvet Underground (circa White Light/White Heat) and the Cramps (circa Songs the Lord Taught Us) audible as clear musical reference points.

But they still play a Sixties-influenced blend of blues, beat and punk that's earned them a passionate following both at home and abroad. Built around a core lineup of Nick Waggoner (guitar and vocals), John Ziegler (guitar and vocals) and Calvin Retvlaff (drums), with a number of other...
