Although he founded his ca­reer han­dling the low-end along­side Dime­bag in groove-metal pi­o­neers Pan­tera, Rex Brown’s heart lies in hard rock, and his six-string de­but pays homage to the best ex­am­ples from the 70s and 90s. Smok­ing riffs abound, from Aero­smith strut ( Lone Rider) to Pur­ple- era Stone Tem­ple Pi­lots ( Buried Alive), along­side some sur­pris­ingly ac­com­plished acous­tic bal­ladry ( Fault Line). With Nashville­based axe-slinger Lance Harvill on hand to de­liver some blaz­ing slide and Pen­ta­tonic leads, Smoke On This… bears all the hall­marks of a well-oiled ma­chine rather than a solo de­but. Michael Ast­ley-Brown Down­load Buried Alive
