Video Beast is one tightly wound, well-oiled renegade rock 'n' roll machine hailing from downstate. The band sounds tough. And let's face it: you've gotta be tough to survive the New York City scene and its fickle unforgiving hoards. The band plays considerably fast and full-on throughout the 10 tracks on "Gooch." It doesn't hold back until it hits the straightaways, rather, Video Beast punches the throttle throughout the time and mood changes, never committing to one long enough for the doldrums to set in. The band makes fast, fun music with big guitars and interesting, unique, and unconventional harmonies. This is a young band (formed 2013) I can't wait to hear more from soon.
