Lovingly pinched from Doommantia: Maryland`s Earthride are back with their long awaited third album titled Something Wicked. Do I really need to tell you about this band, if I do then something is seriously wrong. Having since forming in 1997, Earthride have delivered a couple of mighty albums like Taming Of The Demons and Vampire Circus but its been a little frustrating for us fans only having 2 full length albums in 13 years from the band.

Earthride are so good that the extended waiting period between recordings has been pure torture but finally Something Wicked is out and its another Earthride opus of the highest magnitude. There is no mistaking that this is a Earthride album as the Earthride sound is still there and stronger and tighter than ever before. Of course Earthride is fronted by former Spirit Caravan bassist Dave Sherman and there is Kyle VanSteinburg on guitar, Rob Hampshire on bass guitar and Eric Little on drums.

The patented Earthride sound is one that is heavy and raw as hell and they have lost none of that on Something Wicked but at the same time, the songs here seem to flow better than any of their previous albums. Nothing against those recordings because they are all legendary but this new album seems to be more concise than anything they have done before.
