Ready, Steady…Torpedo! – The Wrath to Come [EP]
Release Date: January 2011.
Record Label: Self-Released.
Ready, Steady… Torpedo! has been launching its brand of straight-running, low-budget rock on Massachusetts’ underground audiences for the best part of two years.
Their loyal and dedicated fan base describes them as “the most rad band ever” and while this may be a case of overhyped bravado, the band’s high velocity breakneck style takes no prisoners.
The Wrath to Come is a taster of what their forthcoming full-length has to offer, and is very much a punk record in attitude, containing furious blues-based garage and bludgeoning riffs.
‘What’s Up, Dr. Faustus’ and ‘Opening Prayer’ drives through lo-fi power-punk chords, while ‘Finish Line’ detracts from the rebellion, opting instead for intricate-laced rhythms. The quartet’s early self-propelled vision is explosive.
