Am Revelator EP
This could be the first-ever usage of the term "Ogden supergroup": AM Revelator is comprised of ex-members of O-Town favorites AK Charlie, Gundhi and Invisible Rays, and yet doesn't really sound like any of 'em. Whereas AK Charlie were raucous punk-metal, Gundhi were heavy blues-grunge and Invisible Rays were spacey garage-punk, AM Revelator's polished, Harley-ready hard rock could just as well come from the Sunset Strip as 25th Street. The five-song EP guns it out of the gate with propulsive tracks "Darkness," "Ride" and "Smash," but then gets pretty/ugly with the melodic "No Sun" ("All I wanted was to hurt you") and slams the door shut with the corrosive "Oculus." As debuts go, AM Revelator is tough to top. -Bill Frost, Salt Lake City Weekly.
