SOS brings a New York hardcore metal sound and adds a bit of stoner rock and alternative metal. This isn’t the band’s first release, but it is the first I’ve ever heard and it’s a decent release and the whole album has straight-forward gritty, dirty punch to it. The sound isn’t really similar to any so called “modern” acts. The album could’ve easily been released in the late 80s/early 90s alternative & hardcore metal scene.

This normally isn’t my type of music, but there are a few bright spots here and SOS is definitely a band loaded with potential.
