A Gathering of None Review

One Grasp at Hope

By Mindy Stevenson, Music Journalist

Boston Rock Radio  

 

 

When I first heard A Gathering of None’s new album One Last Grasp at Hope I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the production. This is the band’s 3rd album (2nd full release) and the story goes that they recorded this in a whopping 4 days. The album sounds like they spent months putting it together. They feature some gloriously enlightened riffs and melodious (or canorous for the word nerds) vocals.

 

There is a very pleasant sense of nostalgia that happens when listening to their album that warms the soul and brings back memories of belly shirts, huge stove pipe jeans and uncombed hair. Their sound is like a mix between early Soundgarden and Rush with hints of Queens of the Stone Age originality.

 

The slightly haunting yet emboldened musical trip is a lot of what the world needs right now. The messages in the songs have a kind of dark before the light mentality almost reminiscent of Chris Cornell’s torched soul sound. Although I might be a little bit bias, I mean one of my first album’s was “Badmotorfinger” and I played that album to death. I literally had to get another one because I wore the CD out (who does that?).

 

AGON’s themed album features songs with all the feels in a type of depressed hopeful state. One of my favorites from the album is their cover for Miltown’s “Predatory Male”.  I thoroughly enjoyed this less bassy smoother version. I might even go as far as saying I liked it better than the original. Their version of this song somehow made the sound more ominous than Miltown’s original but it definitely works.

Fans of late 90’s and early 2000’s rock bands that want a modern take on this familiar sound will love this talented five piece band. Since they are located all over the country and work with one another remotely most of the time, they don’t tour very often. On a personal note these guys are light hearted and fun. So if you see them come to a town near you, I’d make plans to go.
