Psychocide – Alcohol + Bad Decisions (Psychocide, 2017)
Psychocide is the rock and roll band that will take you back to the early days of the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Incubus. Their rock-on attitude in Alcohol + Bad Decisions will leave you wanting to jam out all night. “Crazy Janet” opens the album with high-energy guitar riffs reminiscent of old-school rock. Their tracks will remind you of songs from RHCP’s earlier albums, such as, Blood Sugar Sex Magik. In “Mary,” you’ll hear a classic high-energy rock tune with electrifying guitar solos. This track is sure to make you nostalgic as you think about your favorite 80s and 90s rock bands. Originally from NYC, Psychocide has now made Montreal their home. We can hear Montreal’s influence in their track “Mr. Suit,” with its mixture of French and English lyrics: “C’est quoi ça, chocolat!” Overall, the album captures the essence of classic rock—an excellent decision for a party playlist.
