Upstate NY's Surmiser are a grunge, hard rock and post punk marriage who play every note with the conviction of lifers who have long since given up the notion of turning back. The band is an excellent power trio and have just released their buzzed about latest effort Hold The Static. Songs about depression, addiction and self assessment pair with focused but inspired soul eruptions that take you on a journey through a wide range of emotions. Surmiser are very much worth checking out, constantly working on ways to expand their impact and body of songs to mirror their experiences into something representative to their values in sonic form.

Side projects have always been an anomaly in music – musicians like to experiment with a different sound than what they are known for. Sometimes those projects succeed and are well received, sometimes they are not. File “Ironiclast” under the former. The debut album by The Damn Things, featuring Keith Buckley (Every Time I Die), Scott Ian and Rob Caggiano (Anthrax), and Andy Hurley and Joe Trohman (Fall Out Boy) offer up 10 solid hard rock songs that fit in at any party, bar, or whatever kind of debauchery you might be into.
There is nothing fancy about “Ironiclast”, its appeal is its simplicity. No weird instruments, no avant-garde sound, no bullshit. Just catchy rock songs that you can party to. The chemistry between these musicians is certainly there, and it shows in every song. “Handbook for the Recently Deceased” starts the album off with nice riffs and a great solo. “Graverobber” and “Ironiclast” features Trohman and Ian at their best, complimenting each other very well.
