Show review – SFGate

Have you ever been to one of those shows where it was loud, blaring rock music? Yet, the band was just so good, you were like, louder, because just experiencing that energy in that moment was more important than the possibility of blood spewing out your ears.

That was Electric Sister last night at Hemlock Tavern. Pure rock stars.

They played to a room of about 40 people and it could have been 4000. They were arena rock in an intimate club. The lead singer sported a denim jacket and jeans and had the crowd in the palm of his hands. The two guitarists lifted their axes while playing, for us to worship. Golden calves.

One guitarist had his shirt off, proudly displaying his killer tattoos.

As the performance came towards a close and there was a moment of silence, I kept saying in my head, one more, please, one more, and they did one more, and another.

Then they paid tribute to a couple of their influences by performing songs by KISS and Iron Maiden.

Electric Sister is pure rock heaven.

Check them out October 2nd at Benders. This is not a request, it’s a demand. You will thank me later.

Record review – Sonic Shocks

ELECTRIC SISTER – The lost Art Of Rock ‘N’ Roll
Self released – Out October 25th

Review by Denise Britt

Let’s get the specifics out of the way so I can tell you all about this hard rocking set of tunes!

Electric Sister is: Thadeus Gonzalez (vocals), Jason Lucero (guitars and vocals), Nicholas Hernandez (guitars and vocals), Pete Pacheco (bass) and Eddie Colmeneras (drums). The record was produced by Electric Sister and Dennis Hill (Hagar/Satriani, Lit, Good Charlotte, Allister) and engineer Kyle Homme (Lit, Matt Costa, Sugarcult, Reel Big Fish).

The CD starts off with ‘New Mother Earth’. Good lyrics, a cry for help almost. Nice little guitar solo. ‘I Want It All’, ‘The Leper’, and ‘Monster Girl’ all sound a little similar to me. Good songs, all 3 of them, fantastic guitar work. ‘Goddess’ starts out hard and finishes hard. The title track, “The Lost Art Of Rock’ comes in sounding a little like old KISS to me. Thadeus has a bit of Paul Stanley sound to his voice I’ve discovered. That is a good thing Thadeus. Great riffs in this song as well. Next comes ‘Rock Is Religion’. Rock is religion and religion is loud he tells us. Hmmm. The only ballad on this album is ‘Echo Park’ and it is only a little over a minute long. I wish they would have extended it, it sounded really nice. ‘City Of The Night’ finishes this debut album off. Straight up rock n roll. I think this is my favorite track.

These guys are good. Not convinced that it is “today” sounding enough for them to get the proper recognition though. It is almost too old school rock and roll for a new band. People love it when their old favorites play this stuff…just not sure how well a new band playing it will fare. See for yourself, it is well worth a listen. The album drops on October 25th in the US.

Official P.R. for the release of The Lost Art of Rock & Roll

Oakland, CA-based rock band Electric Sister is releasing its debut full-length record, THE LOST ART OF ROCK & ROLL, on October 25, 2011. The 9-track album includes the title single, “The Lost Art of RocK & Roll.”

Read the PR releases at Hair Metal Mansion, the Hard Rock Hideout, and Mickie’s Zoo

With influences from the best of classic rock, punk and metal, Electric Sister attacks songs without restraint. Hard, primal, dirty; pure, raw and intense. The recklessness comes from the “nothing left to lose” background of all five guys in the band. Each has survived impactful struggles in music, in life, in relationships, and is finding redemption in the power of rock. Yet, the real specialness of each player makes the collective band a force to contend with. In less than a year, the band’s reputation as a live act has made them a go-to for venues and festivals up and down the west coast, including support slots for Danko Jones, Zeke and Lords of Altamont. Electric Sister will be on the road to support THE LOST ART OF ROCK & ROLL through 2012.

Electric Sister is pure rock heaven.”

· Tony DuShane, SFGate

“Big arena rock riffs, the stadium moves to boot and all the schlock you could ask for. Take a Guns and Roses record, break it with an ashtray you bought at a Pantera show while doing a Rob Halford impersonation and you may wake up in Electric Sister.”

· Shannon Corr, Examiner
