My Alamo

994 (Seventh Star)

By • Mar 1st, 2006 • Category: Single review

Oh Lord, do we really need another Welsh rock band with strangely convincing American accents? Judging by the look of the art work, (which is laden with rough typography and ghostly butterflies) this single probably consists of yet another bunch of whiney emo kids drowning their sorrows and lining their eyes with smoky kohl. But as it turns out, My Alamo are actually a completely different breed from Lost Prophets. There�s some heavy palm muting and meaty metal riffage, with the middle eight offering something a little more interesting as it stumbles into an insanely catchy barrage of Feeder like �oos�. �Doctor Doctor� is more grungy, but again incorporates metal elements. Most definitely not my cup of tea, but would do well amongst the Kerrang generation.
