Full Metal Hippie

Electric Valley, the third release from Stone Soul Foundation, delivers first class hard driving blues groove riff-heavy rock with the vocals to match.

These are the kind of songs you want to hear on your city's rock station. If you like bands such as Godsmack, Black Sabbath, Alice In Chains, or Guns N Roses you will like Stone Soul Foundation. SSF has their own sound and style that will fit very well next to the aforementioned bands in your CD/MP3 collection.

The opening track Sidewalker is a fast bluesy rocker and the second track Christian, a scathing social critique, is a hooky mid-tempo grind akin to Pantera or Sabbath. The title track Electric Valley is a funky rocker that may remind the listener of Thin Lizzy's Johnny the Fox Meets Jimmy the Weed with some southern rock flavor as well.

Track 4, Ain't No Mystery is another great up tempo rock anthem and track 5, A Song About You, slows it down and grinds it out. Track 6, Window, changes gears to a slow rock ballad that shows off the exceptional vocals of Sean Muldoon as well as the writing of guitarist Jeff Wiggins.

Electric Valley maintains it's energy for tracks Mountain Of Time, Next Flight, and Gonna Try, slows down for They Are Me, then jumps back to full power for the final track I Master, another great rock hippie anthem.

If you like the genres of hard rock, southern rock, stoner/hippie rock, and/or heavy groove rock, you will want to own Stone Soul Foundation's latest CD Electric Valley.

"The Sabbath vibe of, "Christian" is loaded with riffs that Tony Iommi would be proud of."
