It's taken awhile, but Year Long Disaster, the band formed in rehab by son-of-a-Kink Daniel Davies and former Karma to Burn bassist Rich Mullins, has finally released a full-length. When they keep it simple and direct and rely on Mullins' Karma to Burn past, it's a killer record. This is what Karma to Burn's debut, the one with the last minute singer, should have sounded like. And for that alone, it gets my recommendation.

With a devilish blend of classic rock like ZZ Top, Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath along with a touch of the flair of metal, Year Long Disaster’s debut is shrieking vocals and powerful guitar riffs. Maybe this is not as surprising once you consider that the band’s singer and guitar player is Daniel Davies, son of The Kinks’ Dave Davies. Rounding out the band’s line-up is bassist Rich Mullins (formerly of stoner/psychedelic rock band Karma to Burn) and drummer Brad Hargreaves (of alt pop darlings Third Eye Blind). Talk about an unlikely combination.
