A couple of members from a deathmetal band and a few local punkrockers from Atlanta, Georgia, started Gunpowder Gray with focus on playing 70´s hardrock with traces of blues and heavy metal.
They sound a bit like if Axl Rose would sing with Riot to perform unreleased songs by Blue Cheer.
I don´t mind their non-compromising riffrock and I do believe they rock hard on stage, but it would´ve been neat with a few more stronger choruses because this 7 track EP feels like a maraton of riffs with a neverending verse.
A decent album anyhow and I always appreciate bands that plays by the motto : In rock we trust!
