Albatross / Press

“On "House of Fire": Love this, sleazy and meaty. Great bass tone, regally rumbling. The whole band pounds and bounds on the accents well together, creating a real rocking sound. The vocalist is excellent, with uncompromising attitude an a strong grittily ripped voice to deliver his puissant posturing in spades. As stated, this music is a happy harmony of blues and hard rock, taking the best of each genre and deftly fusing them together. Metal screams, blues slurs, progressive lead guitar mini-symphonies, super-slick drum fills, laddish gang backings vocals, all working as one tight unit in this earthy brew. High accomplishment here, all band members doing what they should, the vocal showing some superb range and power, the arrangement and production are consummate. This band sound ready for bigger things to me, a totally professional act.”

“Got to think "Smoke and Mirrors" by @albatrossblues is destined to be a timeless piece of work.”

“The closing track Smoke & Mirrors is where Albatross show they are very capable song writers and not just another blues rock band.”

“I am REALLY digging what you guys are doing. Seriously cool stuff. "Evil Woman" is such a good jam. Big, tough blues and done damn well; I love it!”

“Happenstance was independently recorded and produced which gives the EP this great grittiness and raw sound to the album.”

“God it's been a while since I've heard someone play the guitar like that - song "smoke & mirrors"”

“Whether it’s a slower song or an upbeat track, the vocals and the music go perfectly together and create a unique mixture of genres.”

"There is a certain vibe here that is just magic. In short, one of the most exciting bands to come out of Ontario in a long while (See, there CAN be Canadians who rock!) the future seems bright for Albatross! ”

“Albatross is a band out of Cochrane, Ontario who play an awesome mix of Blues, Classic Rock and straight up Metal! Still in their beginning stages they only have a couple of tracks online asides from some covers, but what they do have is brilliant. They need to keep doing the great bluesy rock under one Albatross, and then form a metal group under a different one, the potential is just too high.”
