Biters, the Blowouts, Cutback Davis

Those who lament the demise of true rock ’n’ roll may find some comfort in the presence of Biters. In Electric Blood, their first full-length record released earlier this month, the Atlanta act demonstrates their passion and talent for traditional rock music. It’s a head-thrashing-worthy mix of strong drum lines, two talented guitarists and a groovin’ bassist. Lead singer Tuk Smith’s vocals adeptly move from the gritty, borderline screaming — in classic lines like ”I want to smash my television / Somebody let me out of the cage / I’ll pull a guitar out of the grave” in “Low Lives in Hi Definition” — to smoother, but still high-energy, crooning in tracks like “Time to Bleed.” If the sonics of the record aren’t enough, the lyrics show they’re crazy about playing live: “I want to rock ‘n’ roll all night / like it’s 1975!” Expect the Pin to be rockin’ when Biters come through next week.
