Spiralarms have a lot of refreshing and groove driven songs that deserve your attention.

Hailing from the east bay of area of California, Spiralarms features guitarist Craig Locicero of Forbidden and singer and guitar player Tim Narducci from Systematic. Having been friends since they were fifteen, they combined their love of Hard Melodic Rock and released Spiralarms debut album 'Highest Society' in 2010. Their new release 'Freedom' also features Brad Barth (keyboards), Ron Reddem (drums) and finally Anthony Traslavina (rhythm guitar) to complete the line up.

'Dropping Like Flies' has a crude riff and a chorus with few surprises; it's a little predictable until Brad Barth sprinkles some beautiful keyboards, then the song comes alive. 'Hold Me To The Sky' is a little suffocated by the influence of Black Sabbath and the cover of Sabbath's 'Tomorrows Dream' reminds us how it really should be done! Putting aside the more heavy handed approach of previous efforts, 'Exit 63' unfolds into an imaginative song, not unlike some of Tesla's efforts.

Like a tank on a mission 'Blackmoon Morning' grinds along nicely into all terrains, as the song evolves into frayed Rock 'n' Roll. If you like your riffs like a concrete sandwich, then this song is a great number to bust your teeth on! The southern flavour of 'Lovers Leap' is the closest you get to a ballad and singer Tim Narducci has a moment to offer a more subdued vocal. Title track 'Freedom' has a sense of the epic in its delivery; the music is soulful and trades on the influence of Led Zeppelin. In fact this is by far the most commercial offering, but not at the cost of losing the bands musical consistency.

Spiralarms have a lot of refreshing and groove driven songs that deserve your attention.
