New Thunderlip!

Wilmington's Thunderlip has had a bit of a rough time lately. For a while, it seemed like they couldn't keep a bass player, yet every time they played live, they still had amazing energy. But now, with their second CD, The Prophesy, they seem ready to put the past behind them, and finally hit their stride.

The first thing to note, is that, as good as this CD is, it doesn't truly capture the band's live energy, which is phenomenal. As far as full-on rock 'n' roll energy, they're one of a handful of bands in the state (Valient Thorr being one of the others)who truly know how to rock a stage. I think it would have been awesome if they'd recorded the CD live in front of an audience. Nevertheless, The Prophecy is still a solid, heavy record with plenty of Thin Lizzy-style double-guitar leads. If that's your thing, I think you should buy this CD, but make sure you catch them truly in their element.

Hear part of "Mister Informer"
