Review: Coliseum

“Self Titled”
(Level Plane)

Scene dropping:  Louisville.  Yes, everything from there rocks balls.  Name Dropping:  Ryan Patterson.  He was one of the guitarists of The National Acrobat that went on to form Black Cross.  In Coliseum, he still plays guitar but picks up the barking vocal duties as well.  Sound dropping:  Loud fast blistering punkish rock.  Think Motorhead meets Discharge.  Big walls of guitar and bass careen through every track.  An unyielding attack of punk powered rock and roll done right.  The Result: Twelve tracks (many less than two minutes) drives the point home quick with a distorted reckless drive.  Think Zeke with more range.
