MC Roads - "Smile Like a Knife" (audio)

Το ep των MC Roads "No Nostalgia"
Ο Mike Cross ήταν εκ των ιδρυτών του Αμερικάνικου hard rock σχήματος Loudhouse το μακρινό 1989. Μετά από ένα LP και τρία singles οι Loudhouse διαλύθηκαν και από τις "στάχτες" τους γεννήθηκαν το 1992 οι Sponge (με τον Mike Cross παρόντα).

Το 2000 αποχώρησε από την μπάντα (η οποία διαλύθηκε τότε κι επανήλθε έναν χρόνο αργότερα συνεχίζοντας μέχρι τις ημέρες μας) κι αποσύρθηκε (προσωρινά) από την μουσική βιομηχανία.

Πλέον επανήλθε και δημιούργησε νέο σχήμα, τους MC Roads, οι οποίοι απευθύνονται στους φίλους του κλασικού rock / hard rock. Το ντεμπούτο τους είναι ep. Τιτλοφορείται "No Nostalgia", αποτελείται από πέντε τραγούδια και θα κυκλοφορήσει τον επόμενο μήνα...

About MC Roads: «MC Roads' own Mike Cross was co-writer for Sponge’s platinum selling album Rotting Piñata, sophomore album Wax Ecstatic and third release New Pop Sunday. He helped catapult Sponge into rock star status with his catchy hooks, iconic crunchy guitar and an undeniable original sound.

The debut effort from MC Roads, entitled No Nostalgia, has already received rave reviews with its originality and Detroit rock grit, and is slated for a worldwide release in the Spring of 2021.No Nostalgia was produced by Mike Cross and recorded on 2 inch master tape, and was mixed by Chuck Alkazian, (Pop Evil, Soundgarden, Tantric) at the legendary Pearl Sound Studios.»

Tracklisting (+ track by track)

1. Smile Like A Knife: Intense musical hooks throughout this song about betrayal and greed. "Bleed the kindness and the trust of a good friend." Could this song be the ‘You're So Vain’ of rock music?

2. Stoned In Love: "She's heading down from the valley. He's on his way to Nevada." A fast-moving love story that takes a deadly wrong turn! 

3. My Insane Friend: Colourful words, dark, mysterious melody and a truly unforgettable chorus describes this song about a person who sees the world from a different place. 

4. Call it What You Want: Nostalgic guitars starting off this tense story with a modern twist. Who throws dirt on who in this shallow grave? "Call it what you want, but it's not love."

5. Silence And Time: A powerful guitar driven arrangement told from a subjective view about the dark side of human nature. The hopeful chorus lyric is written like a question: "Is there mercy in the silence, grace from pain and suffering or acceptance of the dark side of our nature?"
