A Driving New Release from Ländphil

The latest EP release from Ländphil brings out elements of everything from punk rock to classic metal, thrash, grunge, and more all rolled up into one massive and energetic release that delivers a great attitude and character that you end up just wanting more of song by song.

The Long Live Life EP has such a unique energy to it almost like the songs were recorded live on the floor and the players are just feeding off of each other the entire time.

Of course, I could be completely wrong about the whole live on the floor thing but either way listening to this record makes you want to see these guys live because if the energy can be captured that well on an EP, then seeing them live must just be awesome.

These guys blend a perfect level of greediness, catchiness, color, and edge so that the songs remind you of classic rock songs that you've been listening to on the radio for years, but they also have this added sort of attitude to them and they're incredibly fun and memorable.

A lot of these courses end up sticking in your head for hours or even days after the songs have ended and the only way to satiate that is to play the songs again.

Everything from the guitar tone to the bass tone is spot on and each track has a way of delivering an impactful blast, and the songs have a great way of hitting like a sucker punch to the gut.

The guitar work across the board is awesome and there are lots of windy and bendy sections that show face along with slamming drums, and again, I love that they bring in this punk rock undertone a lot throughout the record because it gives it that extra sort of push and drive.

This record was endlessly fun, and some tracks even come through with an anthemic feel, and if you listen to the record the entire way through which is the way you should be doing it, you'll get elements of everything from Motley Crue to AC/DC, and so much more.

These guys definitely boast that classic approach and that aesthetic is completely nailed with each song, but the main thing is that persona that's delivered a lot because that's what you get wrapped up in and this band ends up being everything that a great Arena rock band should be.

This is important because there are a lot of bands that come out these days, but the songs are sort of cookie-cutter with no actual character to them and it's refreshing to hear a band come through with this level of classic hard rock but also with that character attached.

A lot of this record takes some of the best elements of different genres of rock and puts them in one release which creates an atmosphere that you can sing along with, headbang to, or jump around the living room cranking it super loud.

This to me is sort of a gift and I love hearing it because I feel like there's a lot of stuff in this that I've missed for quite some time so to hear it again right now is almost rejuvenating for me.

There are a few singles that stand out well but again, listening to the full ep from beginning to end is the way to go.

Make sure you turn it up.
