Wim R. : English band The Howling Tides has already released two EP’s, so here is number three. The Brits were formerly known under the name of Anonymous and gained a good reputation as a live act. Together with known producer Aynsley Lister five songs were recorded for this EP. The style of the band is best described as a mixture of classic rock, stoner and garage rock. Singer Rob Baynes has a pleasant and decent rock voice, Musically, the band sounds solid, none of the members outshines the other. This is a real band effort. Tracks like ‘Cheap Painkiller’ and ‘Crack My Soul’ are pretty nice songs. Live this band will definitely pleasant and lively affair, this EP makes that clear enough.
