Imagine if Sahaj Ticotin of RA moved down under to get those right Aussie rock vibes and also listened to the entire Tool catalogue while writing an album, the result could very well be the debut album "In balance" from Adelaide based Colibrium.
With Chris Cornell-like vocals over alternative hard rock riffs, Colibrium are here to deliver a really cool and unique sound that feels both fresh and clever.
There´s no doubt this record will please both fans of old school hard rock like Led Zeppelin as well as modern metal in the same vein as Alter Bridge.
The single Spinning on the wheel is a fave but there are other songs that keeps growing into Godzilla size each time I listen to "In balance". "Silver tape" is such a song.
This band is firing on all cylinders.
Highlights : Spinning on the wheel, Locked and loaded, What do we have left?
