Review – United Teachers of Music – Self Titled


By Rich Horton

If you enjoy rocking out to say the first Iron Maiden album, or if you remember the local band The Midnight Evils this band is for you. It’s punk driven by hard rock and metal.

If you check out their video for “The Choker” on Youtube, you’ll see a group of guys having fun, drinking beer and playing loud music. It looks like a blast and the music really fits that vibe. The subject matter of their songs is sometimes dark, but it’s still just heavy rock and roll.

My favorite song of the five songs on this Self Titled EP is “Paint the Walls With Blood”. It has a great driving rhythm, with vocals that meld perfectly over the top. These guys prove that sometimes keeping it simple yields great songs.

This is a great first effort from this band who is comprised of former members of some other cool local hard rock bands. I am looking forward to what they do next. It will for sure, be loud, heavy and rock hard.
