NewEARS Album Of The Month"Hard Chargin', they keep on that cool southern american country thing going on while mixing it with a funky vibe and some weirdness all meshed together creating a wild and unique style of their own. There are tons of different ideas here, they like jumping from one to the other before you'll get too comfortable in your seat, this is 100% progressive and they do it while still keeping everything super super groovy! Their unique unmatched sound is also present, the everlasting crunchy tones of Justin Walton and Bob Lord mixed together so perfectly sometimes you can't tell where one begin and the other end, they also add keys and saxophone to the mix contributing to a fuller sound. Rick Habib is of course in good shape turning these guys into a very powerful trio. The playing is of course top notch and complex, this will take several spins to fully comprehend, although they are as far as being technical as you can think of, there are about a million notes flying all over through different layers of sounds, when they really kick it into gear you know they are trully one of the best bands out there."

Dreadnaught - Hard Chargin'
"A note on comparisons: I hear (and you will to) many similarities in Dreadnaught's music, snippets of Dixie Dregs chicken pickin', Zappa / MOI style humor, Bungle manic-ness, pick your favorite band that makes the notes jump thru hoops and do circus tricks. The band members draw from the vast palette of styles and sounds that are now available to us courtesy of the most musical century in our history. The way they put it all together is uniquely their own. Dreadnaught reminds me of many great bands yet they sound like none of them. They have their own style and sound." KR - PA
Essential Track: "Mummies Of The Cobbosseecontee where they can delve into more experimental territories, this is maybe their longest song to date clocking over at 10 minutes. The intro is fantstic, very much like something from the Musica En Flagrante album. Piano, keys and drums all mixed together in an avant garde kind of theme, it then blows away and continues, It's a race car of crazy guitar licks and odd bass lines sounds, Killer stuff all the way." S - PA

"The Bentmen have long been an enigma in the Boston rock scene. This rock band/performance art troupe mix disturbing, dadaist, psychedelia with a grotesque stage-show resulting in a blistering, confusing and often mesmerizing performance. Each show is a themed extravaganza with stage design and costuming that could only be described as disturbing and worrisome. Bentmen shows are paganistic affairs where people get tarred, feathered and dragged to the stage to partake in ritualistic body shavings. The Bentmen have wowed crowds of tens of thousands at outdoor festivals and sold out almost every club in town over the years -- well, those who dare." - Joe Bonni, The Weekly Dig
