CD Review: Tantric Run Through "37 Channels" With New Album

Hard rockers, Tantric, return after four years with a new album's worth of material entitled "37 Channels." The new album will be released on September 17 through Pavement Entertainment and features some guests including Shooter Jennings and members of Hinder, 3 Doors Down, Saving Abel and Uncle Kracker.

The 13-song album starts off with the reckless rock of "Again" as lead singer (and only original member) Hugo Ferreira's voice gives off an experienced, weathered tone to the music. Shooter Jennings climbs aboard for the bar-brawling rocker "Mosquito" as the two singers perform a chaotic, aggressive duet of attitude. The mood changes for the loose, acoustic jam of "Loss For Words" as Hugo's voice struggles to hit the higher register, but the feeling places you in the studio with the band, listening to a great demo. Tantric brings together all the right elements for "Where Do We Go From Here" and just cruise through "Rise," before reaching to a new level of mainstream success with "Broken." The album closes with the epic sounding "Bullet" and the edgy rocker "Girl In White."

As the release date of the new album approaches, look for Tantric to announce some upcoming live shows. For more information on the band and their new album, "37 Channels," please visit

One of my favorite bands of all time, so talented, so underrated. The complexity and sophistication of their music shames most contemporaries. Rock on Tantric! I'm glad you're back
