Latest Reviews - August 02, 2015
Ramington Flashride
(Back To Seattle)
2015
Staff Rating: Crank this to 7.7 of 11
Genre: Hard rock, Grunge
Sounds Like: Nirvana, Tad, Everclear
Grunge is not dead. Certainly not if Ramington Flashride has anything to do with it. Hailing from Dusseldorf, Germany, the three piece band made their voyage to Seattle, WA during 2014 and engaged the expertise of mix/mastering specialists in Jack Endino (Nirvana, Soundgarden, Mudhoney) and Chris Ha...

Something Involving A Monkey
(Dive Into the Great Blue Waffle)
2015
Staff Rating: Crank this to 8.8 of 11
Genre: Swing-core, Hardcore
Sounds Like: Scatterbrain, Mordred, Faxed Head
Chaotic comedic angles weave there way through Something Involving a Monkey's (hereafter SIAM) sophomore album Dive Into the Great Blue Waffle.  After overcoming some very difficult times through the passing of their drummer Todd Ankrom on December 30, 2011 from an apparent heart attac...

Titans Of Industry
(ST)
2015
Staff Rating: Turn this to 6.9 of 11
Genre: Metal
Sounds Like: The Sword, Michael Schenker Group, Dokken
Titans of Industry are a brand spanking new metal band straight out of Boston, MA. While their blend of heavy metal is not very original, they seemed to have captured our interest. With that being said, the foursome are a talented bunch, their love for metal is very evident here as their influences ... Full Review and Video Clip
Jovontaes
(Electric Fog Machine)
2015
Staff Rating: Crank this to 8.7 of 11
Genre: Instrumental, Psychedelic, Space rock
Sounds Like: Moon Duo, Woodsman, Wooden Shijps
It was July 25, 2015 In Brooklyn New York. A warm summer day filled with bands playing at festivals and various venues within the robust Brooklyn music scene. We experienced perhaps close to twenty bands or more that day of which many were native to the Brooklyn area. Our night ended at the Palisade... Full Review and Video Clip
Aloke
(Alive)
2015
Staff Rating: Crank this to 9 of 11
|    Editor's Pick
Genre: Indie, Post-Hardcore
Sounds Like: Jeremy Irons and the Ratgang Malibus, Brand New, Manchester Orchestra
After a fair amount of deliberation and consultation amongst the team at Rotation11 we have decided to move forward with granting 'Editor's Pick' status to Aloke's latest album Alive.  The controversy at hand is the fact that we have an issue with one song on the terrific LP.  Let...

Weedpecker
(II)
2015
Staff Rating: Crank this to 9 of 11
|    Editor's Pick
Genre: Stoner rock
Sounds Like: Colour Haze, Elder, Sungrazer
Weedpecker caught our attention in 2013 with their astounding debut album and we described the band as having a crisp and vibrant euphoric stoner rock sound. On their second album II which displays gorgeous album art they continue to enlighten us with more rich and vibrant stoner rock. The ... Full Review and Video Clip
Solstice Coil
(Commute)
2015
Staff Rating: Turn this to 3.8 of 11
Genre: Progressive rock
Sounds Like: Porcupine Tree, Dream Theatre, Queensryche
Having formed in 2001, Solstice Coil are veterans to the progressive rock scene. Their latest album Commute dances between progressive rock and progressive metal flowing with heavy riffs to spacious synthesizer licks and symphonic guitars. The five piece band hails from Israel and are a pas... Full Review and Video Clip
Rancho Relaxo
(Happy Friday Experiment)
2011
Staff Rating: Crank this to 8.7 of 11
Genre: Shoegaze, Psychedelic rock
Sounds Like: Spaceman 3, Sunsplit, The Black Angels
Distant vocals compliment the hazy amorphous trip inducing sound that is Rancho Relaxo. The band formed back in 2003 in Norway, a country that has been a prolific leader to the imaginative psychedelic heavier space rock world. Rancho Relaxo developed their sound since their origin moving away from t... Full Review and Video Clip
Gentlemen Bastards
(Bastards Brew)
2015
Staff Rating: Crank this to 8.4 of 11
Genre: Heavy rock
Sounds Like: Queens of the Stoneage, Lo-Pan
If you like your rock with tons of raw energy and heavy grooves than look no further than Alabama’s The Gentlemen Bastards. Their latest album Bastards Brew is loaded with energetic stoner rock tempos, bits of 90s garage-styled grunge and some heavy blues. The clean vocals of Will Qui... Full Review and Video Clip
BC Camplight
(How To Die in The North)
2015
Staff Rating: Crank this to 8.8 of 11
Genre: Dream psych pop
Sounds Like: Wellwater Conspiracy, Hall and Oates, Flaming Lips
Agreed... this could be one of the weakest album covers we have posted on our site, it seems to have no ties to the intriguing album name, How to Die in the North. Well, we gave it the college try along with the requisite rotations. Frankly, after the first few rotations, this was a difficu... Full Review and Video Clip
