Reliably informed

Teesside heavy rock trio Coral Snake’s new release Six Feet Under might sound like it evokes the more sinister shade of metal, but there’s plenty that’s melodic and upbeat in the band’s work.

The EP plays like a smorgasbord of heavy rock influences, all of them blending well into a whole that is expertly realised. There’s the shredding guitar solo with pinch harmonics and deft spiralling runs of Guns n’ Roses; there’s shades of Disturbed in there as well, especially in the snarled vocals in the bridge of opening track Into The Darkness; Lady Luck almost sounds like that other Teesside-headed serpent, Whitesnake; while the shouted backing vocals of Late Night Call have a Bon Jovi feel to them.
