Woods of Arden – Short Fuse Dynamite (2010)





Alex Kostov – Vocals

Mario Traina – Lead guitar

Greg Gioia – Rhythm Guitar

Jordan Wolfson – Bass

Mike Gambino – Drums

There is no denying this quintet the serious kudos they deserve for the effort that went into this work of Rock-and-Roll Art.  Soaring vocals, tantalizing guitar work, and  an arousingly tight rhythm section drive this EP from start to finish.  There isn’t a track I would even think of skipping.  From the heated opening tracks, “Over the Line” and “Twice as Nice” into the compact harmonies in “Crazy”, which gives a little hint at Alice in Chains without scamming their style, through the last furious track, “Rabbit”, there is a feeling that these guys are out to dominate the Rock scene and nothing is going to stop them.  This hard-rocking crew can be seen next on Thursday April 21st at 7:30pm at the Gramercy theater, 27 East 23rd St, in NYC.
