My review:

  • Awesome stuff, very raw and 80’s like sound
  • A mix of everyone from Ozzy to Billie Idol to Metallica
  • You’ve all got the “Rock” look down pat, impeccably matching your sound
  • Great songs; spellbinding tales
  • Mitch’s vocals, Wow!! You must gargle gravel!
  • Astonishing and guitar and rhythm section

  6. Changing Gears

Hammer Switch is a 5-piece band from Cronulla in the Sutherland Shire. They’ve been a band for a little over a year now, however this short amount of time only makes the appreciation in the quality of their music 10 X better.

My opinion of Changing Gears: I love how raw this track is, and how raw and how ‘live’ and ‘stadium’ the band is, in delivering it.  Bringing back the old skool roots and metal axe riffs and solos. Very Powerful.
