Review: 'Heavy Traffic/The Mad Doctors'
'Split 7"'   

-  Label: 'Twin Earth Records/King Pizza Records'
-  Genre: 'Rock' -  Release Date: '22nd September 2017'

Our Rating:
So, Heavy Traffic – purveyors of psych metal – contribute ‘Daylight Ripoff’, while masters of fuzzy garage rock, The Mad Doctors, deliver ‘Yuengling Malmsteen’.

The former features lumbering riffs and tempo changes aplenty with a shedload of reverb encasing the impenetrable, trippy vocals. Black Sabbath on acid? Yeah, probably. Is it any good? Sure. The production’s murky in a good way, it’s got energy in spades and a fuck-ton of flange and some wild wig-out guitar soloing.

The latter features dense, whirling guitars and piston-pumping percussion, which provides the backdrop to echoey-as hell vocals. Is it any good? Yeah. A lot less trebly than pretty much any garage rock I’ve ever heard, ‘Yuengling Malmsteen’ is high-octane, full-throttle rock ‘n’ roll, and it’s over in less than three minutes.
