IF YOU LIKE HARD ROCK, UNIDA CHECK OUT HOUSE OF BROKEN PROMISES
Formed by some of the other members of John Garcia’s post-Kyuss project Unida, House of Broken Promises seriously rock so hard that it should terrify Buckcherry, Daughtry, Nickelback, and the rest of their lackluster ilk. Simply put, they fucking rule. Don’t believe me? Then check out the video for “The Hurt (Paid My Dues),” which comes off their just-released debut Using The Useless.
If, like me, you’ve been craving something that’s “heavy” without being “brutal,” you ought to buy this immediately. While you’re at it, be sure to pick up Pig Charmer the latest from House of Broken Promises’ Small Stone Recordings labelmates Throttlerod. Both of them are late contenders for my best-of-2009 list.
