Death On Two Wheels

When: Thu., Jan. 29 2009

Death comes in many shapes and forms. An aneurism. A clogged artery. A urinary tract infection. Sometimes it comes on two wheels. Of a bicycle? You’re joking. A scooter? You’re crazy. A Harley Hog? Hell yeah. Put on your leather pants and jacket and strap on a helmet because Atlanta-based hard rock act Death on Two Wheels is going to take you on a ride on the Highway to Traffic Violations. (Seriously, who needs a helmet? When it’s your time, it’s your time.) Led by guitarist/singer Trae Vedder, Death on Two Wheels is ripping it up through the southland, bringing audiences their brand of roaring ragged-throat rock. Two Wheels has hit the asphalt in support of their latest release, Separation of Church & Fate, and judging by a few streaming tracks, the disc sounds like a real 1450-cc rocker. For starters, there’s “Calling Us All Back Home,” which conjures up both post-hardcore Corrosion of Conformity and retro-nauts Wolf Mother. “Hey Hey Hey” is another stomper, albeit one with a man-crush on Deep Purple. That’s not to say Death on Two Wheels doesn’t have its softer side — “Take It Away” is an old school anthem while “How Love Is Made” sounds like something the Traveling Wilburys would have made if Huey Lewis had replaced Roy Orbison. Crank it up, brother. —Chris Haire
