FAMOUS UNDERGROUND picture
The driving force behind Famous Underground (formerly known as 'Revolver') is Nick Walsh and Laurie-Anne Green. Most 'rockers' will remember Walsh from Canadian Juno Award winning hard rock band, Slik Toxik.

Famous Underground's sound and music is a hybrid of the best elements of the Devil's music: edgy, dangerous, melodic and hooky bringing a paradigm shift to the arena of rock. It's been said, that they have created something fresh and exciting in an otherwise stagnating genre. With the conclusion that no-one has definitive comparisons, it could be said that they have taken the best elements from over three decades of rock to create their own brand of 'METALLIC HARD ROCK'.

The debut album titled 'TURBULENCE' has seen official releases in Europe, the U.K. and Canada through companies such as Drakkar Records/SONY/BMG and KOCH. The videos 'Turbulence' and 'Blue Sky' were added to Much Music's 'MuchLoud' and garnered an unprecedented 20 weeks

Fronted by ex-Slik Toxik's singer, Nick Walsh, the Canadian hard rock outfit, Famous Underground, is venturing to the dark territory, slashing the chugging heavy riffings of Black Label Society and modern day Ozzy Osbourne, the alternative rant of Nickelback, and a bite of old-school Metallica/Megadeth. Formerly known as Revolver, Walsh and the gang opens up their new chapter under new branding.

"Wasteland" started with an uptempo low-drive distorted guitar, a strong bomb to crack open. "Overdrive" and "Dead Weight" moves forward with a similar shape, good stuffs but then something tell you that the road ahead is gonna be the same. My concern started to bloom when "Love Stands Still" comes up next. The bland and hookless hard rock riffs puts here is too risky of losing the listeners attention as they're veering the album away to boredom. "Bullet Train" and "Mommy Is A Junkie" aren't getting better and only emphasize the songwriting's weakness.

"Forever And A Day" is a nice insertion of acoustical ballad and strangely is one of their strongest tune. "Wheel of Misfortune" luckily regains the momentum, blowing with galloping riffs, for fans of modern hard rock/heavy metal, this one is hell of a good track to listen to. "On Broken Wings" is another balladic attempt, resembles Metallica's 'Nothing Else Matters' at some point. "Necropolis" is struggling to go past the average poles and "Hell To Pay" is better but still not enough to compete with "Wasteland".

Lack of big hooks and similar riffs template in most of the songs can easily steer away potential fans as Famous Underground's eponymous debut contains too many average tracks and only a handful of tracks can be classified as 'great'. A major improvement in songwriting is required for them to boost the quality higher in the next release, but overall, a decent release to please the fans of BLS or modern Ozzy.
