Neurotica’s Seed CD is a full throttled assault of the senses that will leave you screaming for more. In other words This CD will kick your A**, that is putting it lightly. 

Neurotica hails from Florida where they were discovered By AC/DC front man Brian Johnson, who took them under his wing, got them a recording Contract with NMG Entertainment, and then produced their debut CD Seed. Does the influence show? It does indeed but not much in the sound department, sure the opening track "Deadly Sin" begins with a classic AC/DC riff. The reason for that is most likely the fact that the tunes was co-written by Johnson with Executive Producer Doug Kaye. No the AC/DC influence shows in energy and attitude. The same balls to the wall feeling found on the earlier AC/DC records can be felt loud and clear on this Disc. 

Taking the grunge, and heavy, I mean Heavy, metal sounds and twisting them into the sometimes Trippy Neurotica sound can not be an easy task, but these guys appear to know what they are doing. From Deadly Sin to Genius to Lunatic, it is apparent that Johnson has a nose for the next big thing.

"Deadly sin" like stated earlier opens with a classic AC/DC sounding riff then kicks into over drive with a White Zombie meets Sound Garden delivery on the lead vocals. The guitar work on this disc seems to borrow from the best of the heavy spectrum of popular music of the past 15 years, from grunge progressions, to Speed Metal riffs it is all there. Not to say these guys just recycle what we have already heard, not at all they have a very fresh sound that should appeal to fans of many musical genres. 

We are treated to a funky bassline and guitar harmonics for the second track “Two Worlds”, the vocals are more melodic than the first track, showing that Neurotica is just as good kickin Ass as they are just rockin with a funky back beat. 

Possibly, my favorite track on Seed is “Easy Speak”. Which starts out with a real mellow bluesy feel, then when the Chorus is repeated the distortion kicks in. Kelly Shaefer struts his vocal stuff with this tune, with his vocal manipulation. What can I say this song is just damn cool. 

Seed Delivers in every department, it is filled with killer guitar riffs and chops not to mention Smokin Guitar solos courtesy of Shawn Bowen and Mike Gaudreau. G.J. Gosman pounds the skins vigorously and produces some nice fills, while Clay Yeagley lays a solid foundation with his Bass Chops on songs like "Two Worlds", and "Free". 

You may not of heard of Neurotica yet, but believe me you will, this stuff is just too cool to be over looked. If you love hard rock, alternative, grunge, or speed metal, pick this disc up. It comes with the added bonus of giving you the ability to put it in your CD player and cranking it to 10, which is guaranteed to piss your neighbors off. That reason alone will justify the purchase. 

Bottom line Seed is more fun than a frontal lobotomy and less bloody.
