Blind Dog - Captain Dog Rides Again
Sweden seems to be branching out as of late from the Melodic Death Metal/Power Metal scene and jumping into the 70's Rock genre. It's not to say that bands out there haven't been doing this, but it's becoming more apparent now. BLIND DOG presents this CD in raw, garage sound which is heavy, catchy and powerful.

The guitars are fuzzy complimented with raspy vocals and hard drumming that gives it that Garage Rock feel that is true and not trying to be the flavour of the week. "Don't Ask Me…" and "Iron Cage", show raw power with lots of rhythm and thumping bass. "Follow The Fools" is groovy Doom that sounds like you know who (Insert obvious Doom influence from the 70's)? "Back Off" kind of has that Zakk Wylde vibe when you hear the vocals, but still original. It just sucks to hear a band like that wasn't around in the 70's.

They could have given bands like STYX and all that was wimpy in the 70's a swift kick in the face. This is truly man made Garage Rock. So sit back, crack open a cold one and remember the good times. (Online September 24, 2003)
