I like American Cities and American States that initially sound like a metalheads paradise as soon as they are brought into conversation. Some of these include Boston Massachusetts and Sacramento California but after listening to Kriadiaz I can add Cleveland Ohio to that list.
Kriadiaz were formed in 2010 by former Mushroomhead guitarist Dave Felton in 2010 this four piece play straight up metal with no thrills but with a bad ass attitude. This attitude rears it’s delicious head through out these brutal fourteen tracks that are all based around superb riffs.
Kriadiaz must get told they sound like Pantera all the time but this is very true and if anything should be taken as a compliment. The riffs, the grooves, the beats and the gritty vocal snarl all add up to a great full length debut.
If you are daring enough to listen to Kriadiaz then their album will be released through Pavement Entertainment on September 2013. If you can’t wait until then I suggest you find them on the world wide web and brace your ears for some heavy shit. 7.7/10
