“DARK PUNCHES AND FAST MUSIC”

THERE’S A BAND THAT I WAS TURNED ONTO A COUPLE OF MONTHS AGO, AND QUITE HONESTLY IT TOOK ME A LITTLE WHILE TO FORM A REVIEW ABOUT THEM. THE BAND “FLUFFER’ THE ALBUM “WORLD’S ON FIRE” A TERXTURED AND MILDLY DARK ALBUM THAT HAS RHYTHM A WHOLE LOT OF DEEP TONES THAT KEEP THE FOOT TAPPING ON THE DESK. THE FIRST SONG ON THIS ALBUM IS CALLED “BEG, STEAL OR BORROW”, AND FOR A MINUTE THE LEAD SINGERS VOCALS REMINDED ME OF EARLY BILLY IDOLISH, BUT HAS THE GUITAR RIFFS OF EARLY GENERATION X. THE GUITARS RIP FROM THE BEGINNING & DON’T LET LOOSE UNTIL THEY’VE RUN THEIR GAMMET ON YOUR EARS. THE NEXT SONG CALLED ” REVENGE’ THE SAME TONE. THE BAND EVOLVES WITH LEAD VOCALS OF ROBERT TROSINO AND HAS A SOUND OF BANG TO IT, THERE ARE SOME FANCY GUITAR LICKS PLANTED DEEP WITHIN THE  SONG. THE LYRICS ARE REAL FEELINGS AND HAVE EMOTION RUNNING THROUGH THEIR VEINS. THE NEXT TRACK CALLED “FALSE FLAG” HAS A PUNKISH FEEL TO IT,  BUT WITH A MESSAGE AND BRINGS IT LOUD AND CLEAR. WITH THE NEXT TRACK CALLED “FOLLOW ME DOWN” THE GUITAR SHOW NO SIGN OF GIVING UP, AND TROSINO KEEPS THE BANGING JUICE THOUGHOUT. ROBERT & HIS MESSAGES AND GIFT OF SONGWRITING, THAT SEEMS TO HAVE A DARK ELEMENT THROUGHOUT. “FADE AWAY” HAS A SOUND THAT IS UNIQUE AND THE GUITAR BASED BAND SHOWS AWESOME GUITAR TECHNIQUE THAT HAS A ECHO AND THE USE OF REVERB AND RHYTHM GUITAR THAT SOUNDS REALLY SMOOTH AND BRINGS A UNIQUE TWIST TO THE ROCKERS OF TODAYS MUSIC. THE SPEED CONTINUES WITH THE NEXT SONG CALLED “BLOOD ON THE SHEETS” WHERE THE BEAT AND GUITARS CONTINUE TO RIP THROUGH THE SONG AND ADD PUNCH AND JABS TO THE GUT AS YOU LISTEN. “EQUAL DISTRIBUTION OF HATE” A SONG THAT FOLLOWS ALL PREVIOUS SONGS ON THIS AMAZINGLY AND FAST PACED ALBUM, THAT IS QUITE RELENTLESS, WHEN IT COMES TO THE GUITAR LICKS AND DOSN’T SEEM TO LET YOUR EAR MUSCLES REST. WITH THIS BEING SAID THE NEXT TRACK CALLED “DON’T BLAME ME” IS ANOTHER RIGHT FROM THE GET GO, THE GUITAR RIP RIGHT THROUGH AND BEGAN STRUMMING AND BLAST OUT WITH A STRUMMING ACTION THAT RESEMBLES THE BAND CALLED THE CULT, HOWEVER,  WITH A HEAVIER DOSE OF STRONG STRUMMING. WITH THIS BEING SAID, THE NEXT SONG CALLED “AGAIN” ROBERT TROSINO AND FELLOW FLUFFERS TONY DEMORE AND THUNDERIN’ JOE HAYES, REALLY PACK YOUR EARS WITH FULL OUT HEAVINESS AND PARDON THE TERM NO FLUFF INVOLVED. THE BAND HAS A CATCHY FLARE AND KEEPS THE FOOT TAPPING GOING ON THROUGHOUT.THE NEXT TRACK CALLED “STARVE THE SINNER” THE DARKER SIDE COMES OUT AND GUITARS STILL CONTINUE TO RIP THROUGH MY EARS AND NEVER GIVE UP. IT SEEMS AS IF THE LYRICS AND WORDS OF SONGS WERE WELL THOUGHT AND THE BAND FLUFFER HAS A MESSAGE THROUGHOUT THEIR MUSIC CATALOG AND COMES THROUGH LOUD AND CLEAR ON EVERY SONG. AT LAST THE TITLE TRACK CALLED “WORLD’S ON FIRE” STARTS OUT WITH A SPACEY KIND OF KEYBOARD TO CLEANSE THE MUSIC PALLET & ONLY TO OPEN UP AND GIVE YOU THE PUNCH AND FLAVOR OF WHO FLUFFER IS AS A BAND, A HEAVY AND FULL OF HEART POUNDING, FIST CLENCHING MUSIC WITH A LITTLE ANGST ALONG THE WAY. THE LAST SONG ON THIS ALBUM IS CALLED “IDENTITY CRISIS’ HAS A MELODIC AND KEEPS THE THEME OF HEAVY AND DARK BUT RHYMICALLY WELL DONE. THE GUITAR DRIVEN AND CONTINUAL BEAT OF THE DRUMS BECOMES WHAT THIS BAND IS, A REALLY HARD DRIVEN AND YET CATCHY RIFFS THAT KEEP THE EYELIDS WIDE OPEN AND READY TO CATCH YOU WHEN YOU AREN’T AWARE AND KICK YOU RIGHT WHERE THE SUN DON’T SHINE OR ATLEAST A SWIFT GUT WRENCHING PUNCH. I THANK ROBERT TROSINO AND THE BAND FLUFFER FOR THEIR MUSICAL CONTRIBUTION AND LOOKING FORWARDS TO HEARING MORE FROM THEM IN THE FUTURE.  I ALSO THANK ROBERT FOR HIS FRIENDSHIP AND OTHERS WHO HAVE MADE ME AWARE OF A BAND WITH NO FLUFF ATTACHED.

I have a very extensive broadcasting & music back round. With over 30 years experience. I have been nominated for several writing awards (ie) publicist and promoter of the year also, one of the industries most revered music reviewers. I started a writing career, with the idea bringing notice to the industry all music artists, focusing on Indie artists, and many mainstream artists as well. Writing about individuals, from all around the globe, all music genres and remaining consistent with my slogan of "Hearing is Believing", and "All Music Matters and bringing out the "positive" in all artists no matter how small, big or different. I feel all need to be given that chance to be noticed for their talents and allow others to hear, and noticed for their talent. As of date I have written well over 400 music album reviews and continue to acquire more everyday. Some legends, some independent artists. My continuing wish is they get the to share the stage lights within the industry. With making a difference with my "Positive " music reviews through my writing style, about them & for them and reviewing their music always in a "Positive" forum.
