The Raygun Girls, may not exactly be a household name, but the band are no strangers when it comes to the world of music. The group released Mars Eclipsing in 2004, The Ones I Denied in 2006, Dirt Collector in 2009 and the album The Taker in 2011. The Raygun Girls laid low during the fires of a few lineup changes and personal struggles, but have risen from the ashes victorious and are now ready to storm their way back onto the scene with their latest full-length album The Raygun Girls.

The new album consists of 11 rough and ready tracks filled with a gritty, hard as nails concepts of brutal invasion and apocalyptic doom.  The band has branded their latest work as "An ode to the apocalypse and a call to revolution”. By virtue of the group's powerful appeal, the new album will provide you with the strength to rise up and fight for your survival while leaving you mesmerized and ravished by the end of your apocalyptic campaign.

The opener The Time is Now thrusts through your chest with hostile heart murmuring drum blasts. The distorted guitar and intense solos kick the song into high gear. Vocalist Geoff exudes straining and downright dirty vocals, giving this song its punch. Speak the Disappointment offers a captivating strong bass lead and high pitched /chugging guitar riffs layered with powerful and clean vocals. The track Look to the Skies has elements of 90’s grunge mixed with amazing guitar leads and slides. The vocals are jarring and sharp. Tracks like Believe and Raise Your Voices fill you with anticipation for the free for all brawls that wait beyond the horizon. The urgency of these tracks is evident like a heroic, motivational tirade to an army of minions. The track Ghosts is a realization piece of the evil we bring on ourselves. Slow, sluggish guitars combined with deep bass lines and a hint of a Doors influence in the vocals scream out in agony.  The last three songs give you a visual of the strike they impose, a battle they will win and the bloodshed of many… to bring forth the rise of a new world. Bring your guns…Stand Up and fight; The Coming is upon us. We will march in unison to the death of one world for the birth of another. I Will Remain Stable in mind and soul able bodied to protect those who do not have refuge and we will see the dawning of a new day.

The new The Raygun Girls album differs from the typical hard rock sound. Crossing over the boundaries of the metal, goth and industrial genres, to bring you an original creation from the minds of tenacious souls. Fusing energetic resonance with unearthly vibes to conjure forth the rise of a nation and a battle against ourselves, our past, politicians, and the rich and even beings from another world.  A must have!
