Blending with ease the crusty crunchy chaos ofThe Unsane and the explosiveness of Scars Of Tomorrow, these guys dropbombs from the beginning and the rest is just us awaiting the fallout.The band previously released an EP in 2009 titled Still Strong, whichwas merely an introduction to what was to come. The Dream EP harnessesthe rawness and epicness one would expect from a seasoned bandreleasing their 4th full length upon the world. Alas, this is merelyanother EP and its filled to the brim with toxic vocals anddestructive grooves and beat downs. Tracks like The Want (featuringTyler Greene of the now defunct ABACABB) highlight what this band doesbest. They destroy you quickly and without remorse and let youbreathe, only for a second with Andre Bravo giving us his best MikeMilford soulful clean vocal, before turning right around andfinishing you off. Its in tracks like Speed Of Spinning Earth thatyou realize these guys arent here to play. They paid attention in thelate 90's and early 2000's to what was hot and have rendered it anartform. In Alcatraz 1962 bring forth a heavy, mosh inducing musicthat has been sadly absent since bands like the severely overlookedScars Of Tomorrow, Sinai Beach and The Unsane either disbanded or haveseemingly fell off the face of the Earth. With the release of Dreamand the interest these guys have been garnering as of late, I see noreason they shouldnt get picked up and thrust further into the facesof hungry metal and hardcore kids everywhere.URL: http://www.myspace.com/inalcatraz1962
