A strong but short record
on August 17, 2012
Throughout their on-again, off-again relationship, guitarist George Lynch and singer Oni Logan have made some amazing music in the group Lynch Mob. The original vocalist for the band, Logan and Lynch split up after 1990s Wicked Sensation, finally reconciling and reuniting for 2009s Smoke and Mirrors. More problems arose, and the group has used several different singers over the past year and a half, but last week a new 4-song CD surfaced featuring Logan behind the mic once again. As with Wicked Sensation and Smoke and Mirrors, Sound Mountain Sessions is impressive at every turn.
Bass player Robbie Crane (Ratt, Vince Neil) and drummer Scot Coogan (Brides of Destruction) join Lynch and Logan on this release, providing the foundation on which the songs are built. Loganfs voice sounds as good as it ever did, and Lynch is still at the top of his game on his ESP guitar. From the snarling gSlow Dragh to the earworm-chorus of gCity of Freedom,h Lynch Mob has released a strong but short record that will leave the listener begging for more.
