AUG - Be Careful What You Wish For...

.
The album title, Be Careful What You Wish For..., nearly begs the question: What if I wished for a rejuvenated Ozzy Osbourne? If you made such a wish, it may be granted in the form of AUG.

This group has been host band for VH1's That Metal Show Christmas party for the past three years, and from the sound of this recording, they sound to be perfectly appropriate party hosts. You get the impression they long to be metallic rulers of the dark world when they sing, "The anti-Christ he rises," during "The Devil's Rejects." Much like Black Sabbath in their heyday, though, this act seems to be more cartoonish-ly Satanic than, say, than really scary guys like Slayer.

Also, this is not screamo metal or punkish metal, but more old school, classic metal. The guitar solo during "Coming Home" sounds straight out of a great 80s British Steel metal recording. There's even a cool bass solo during "Light of Day."

Have you ever wondered what a metal version of Toto's "Africa" might sound like? Wonder no more because AUG gives us a relatively restrained cover of that hit here. It doesn't rock all that hard, but certainly harder than Toto ever did.

AUG may not break any musical ground with Be Careful What You Wish For…, but they've easily won the audition for the next VH1 That Metal Show Christmas party.
