Promotional Video Review: ROUGH GRIND Bulletproof by James K. Blaylock

From their EP Trouble Or Nothing, released July 13, 2018 on Inverse Records
Place of origin: Finland
Genre: Rock, metal
Okay, let's be honest: Rough Grind know they're not reinventing the wheel with their new single Bulletproof. Instead they're playing down and dirty rock and roll. Bottom line, they're having fun. Kind of like if you went to a hard rock/metal music festival and these guys took the stage, you would take notice, because, just like their predecessors Motorhead, Crowbar, Pro-Pain, even Prong, they've come to earnestly obliterate some eardrums. Who cares if their lyrics are nothing to write home about likewise the amateurish video for Bulletproof. (Maybe for their next outing even doing a video documentary-style or video diary-style or even guerilla-style. Perhaps their lyrics can be beefed up a little more with a trusty thesaurus.) Regardless they obviously want to leave their dent in the infinite corridors of hard rock/metal. Truly if they continue with their tight-knit onslaught, they may very well do just that. There you have it The Good, The Bad and The Ugly. -James K. Blaylock
