Review of Diamond Rings EP by Flower Of Zeus

The amazing fact about Flower Of Zeus is that there are only two members which leaves you in disbelief at how they can make so much NOISE? Is someone playing mind games or what, your guess is as good as any. The title track 'Diamond Rings' kicks things off and it's pure guitar and drums. There are actually people out there that can actually play their instruments with anger but fall short on the final product but these guys produce a monster of a track that leaves you wondering how it would sound live; a thought that makes you feel out of breathe listening to it.

'Glad I'm Dead' starts off sounding like a jamming session but then boom the amps are cranked up and Flower Of Zeus carry on to not flatter or deceive. 'Awake The Lion' should be renamed make the lion jump out of its skin. Just when you thought things couldn't get any louder they just did, the drums being smashed to hell and distorted vocals. Noise noise noise is it the future or is it the fact that when you turn the radio all you hear is the same old playlists, anything is nice change from that!

Flower Of Zeus Diamond Rings EP

The final curtain call of 'Diamond Rings' is 'Motorcycle' which vocally has a James Dean Bradfield feel to it, again no holding back on producing as much noise that is humanly possible, and yet this is probably the least loudest of the tracks but has the best guitar solo on it, it's fantastic.

'Diamond Rings' is an EP encapsulated and filled of pure noise and energy, there is excitement around this record and the excitement will only increase with the anticipation of the new album. This collective are one to be one that have a close eye on them.
