Roaring out of the gate with a gale of noisy, feedback-drenched guitars and thundering drums, Brimstone Howl seem determined to prove they're not just another Nuevo-garage band on their third full-length album, We Came in Peace. And while the songs lean to the fast and loud side and the chord changes are in the classic style, Brimstone Howl add a large portion of spookiness to the formula here, with the Velvet Underground (circa White Light/White Heat) and the Cramps (circa Songs the Lord Taught Us) audible as clear musical reference points. Musically, Brimstone Howl take to the dark netherworld of this music like a duck to polluted water, and Calvin Retzlaff's propulsive drumming and Nick Waggoner and John Ziegler's big, menacing guitars work wonders with these tunes, while Jim Diamond's spacious engineering and production only adds to the impact. But while the music clicks, lyrically tunes like "Obliterator," "Child of Perdition," and "The World Will Never Know" come off as unfortunately pretentious, with the wordy images of a doomed world sounding less like dark poetry than the blog entries of some goth-obsessed eighth grader. Brimstone Howl are clearly smarter and more talented than that, and a healthy percentage of We Came in Peace works despite the lyrics (Ziegler's vocal delivery helps), but if this band is going to make the great album they may well have in them, they really need to find a better wordsmith before they head into the studio again.

Nick Cave: Bad Seed

Nick Cave and his Bad Seeds remain one of the most prolific adventures of the post-punk era. Since the late 1980s, the vast magnetism of the Australian singer has swirled through violent paroxysms, fulminating covers, piano ballads and sweaty rock'n'roll. As the years went by, Cave became more and more of a crooner, part way between a punk Frank Sinatra and an austere Johnny Cash.

The Black Keys in 10 Songs

From 2001, The Black Keys have been reminding the world about the real roots of the Blues, cutting away all the frills and unnecessary solos. Their music has always been untamed, abrupt and minimalist. Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney developed this unique style over the course of two decades, without once selling their souls to the devil at a Mississippi crossroads. Here are ten songs to prove it.

Jack White, The Saviour of Rock

From the White Stripes to his time in the solo wilderness, Jack White has been foretelling the doom of a clapped-out rock'n'roll. The genius with a thousand projects has a new prophecy: rock is coming back. While we await its return, here's a look back at the White phenomenon.
