If you saw the members of Clutch off stage you probably wouldn’t give them a second look. The four Maryland natives look like any other middle aged guys you might run into at the grocery store or see picking up the kids from school, but maybe that’s part of their appeal. There’s no rock star posturing, just high energy music that rocks hard, but never compromises it’s greasy groove.
this should easily be the next album you buy, it really is nothing like anything else being released at the moment and the band actually sound more like DEEP PURPLE than DEEP PURPLE themselves have sounded for the last decade or so and now that the album has fully sunken into my brain I am willing to call it a modern day classic…
For those of you that aren’t familiar with the name, STEVE SALUTO is an Italian guitarist with a very distinct and unique sound. He travels somewhere between HENDRIX, GARY MOORE and seventies funk & soul music.
SALUTO first decided to try the guitar after hearing the now famous guitar solo on the Michael Jackson song BEAT IT which was provided by none other than EDDIE VAN HALEN.
