Arriving August 3rd, is the debut album from the high-powered supergroup, Ultraphonix. The band features members from Living Colour, Dokken, War and Project NfidelikAh, as they come together over the unspoken bond of music. Their album, titled "Original Human Music" features 12-songs that celebrate social consciousness through great rock anthems. Beginning with "Baptism," Corey Glover's vocals are strong and true, as he works alongside legendary hard rock guitarist George Lynch. The album continues with the bluesy tempo of "Another Day," before showcasing the band's force on the hard-hitting attack of the album's lead single "Walk Run Crawl." You can feel the passion in their performance of "Free" as the rhythm section of Pancho Tomaselli (bass) and Chris Moore (drums) motors the song's funk-fueled groove. Ultraphonix experiment with their hard rock sound on "Fire," before finishing up their new album with the screaming guitars and rumbling rhythm of "Ain't Too Late" and the heavy metal sounds of "Power Trip."
