Happy 420 day all!! This is Terry the Ancient One and I would like to tell you about a real rockin’ band called Bionic Caveman and the album they released today on April 20th / 420 Reactor. I grew up listening to my daddy’s records and his collection had some amazing blues based rock bands like Joplin, Hendrix, Cream, and The Doors and listening to the Bionic Caveman album Reactor took me back to those days.
Reactor is filled with heavy blues rock that you both hear and feel. Meaning when you listen to the music you find yourself rockin’ to the beat and the riff and unable to sit still. I liked this feeling so much I had to play the album twice and intend to buy their debut album Predator. You know this is an ambitious album with Bionic Cavemen’s J. Bernal’s wicked drum solo on ‘Black Diamond.’ Not many bands can/will effectively showcase their drummer with solos while just focusing on “The Riff.” ‘Black Diamond’ also shows there is no weak link in this group!! It has it all…
I loved this album from beginning to end. Some of my favorites from Reactor are ‘EOW’, ‘Lover’, ‘Black Diamond’ and ‘Train.’ If you like blues based hard rock then Chicago based Bionic Caveman will trip your trigger. Highly Recommend!
Bionic Cavemen are:
J. Bernal – Drums
L. Drennan – Bass
A. Morgen – Vocals
R. Morgen – Guitar
