The Illuminati Review
By Gary Schwind

On this six-song EP, The Illuminati don't waste any time in revealing what they're all about. This band is about fat guitar riffs and tight rhythms in the tradition of bands like Molly Hatchet. They don't waste any time getting from one track to another either. The Motörhead-like grooves of "Salon Kitty" sound like an extension of "Lemmy Know."

The riffs in "Wingspan" sound like they've just arrived from 1974. That's not a bad thing at all. You'll want to bust out your air guitar for this one.

"On My Way Back Home…Again" is my favorite song on this EP. The Illuminati fuse a little bit of twang into this song. This will not only get your toes tapping, it will probably get lodged in your head for a while. This EP contains one extra also: a video of "On My Way Back Home…Again." Mostly, it shows still photos of the band members next to the lyrics of the song. Toward the end, there is some video of the band performing and their live performances look as energetic as I imagined.

This is another CD that is over too quickly. However, that's really the only thing that I would change about this disc. If you like high-energy, guitar driven groove rawk, then you should check out this Toronto trio.
