    Beware of Darkness "Howl" EP Review — 4.5 out of 5 stars - By ARTISTdirect.com editor in chief Rick Florino…

    Unpredictability is a lost art in rock 'n' roll. Beware of Darkness stands out as the most elusive trio to riff in ages, and that's what makes them one of the best bands out there.

    Their debut EP Howl [available at iTunes] trips on blues wizardry, staggering rhythms, lyrical mysticism, and an impressive vocal wail. Rather than tread revisionist ground, Beware of Darkness come off as revolutionaries on the title track, which seamlessly morphs from a hypnotic harmony into unadulterated shredding. Meanwhile, a foreboding violin comes to an eerie halt at the beginning of "Ghost Town" just before dipping into supernatural rock 'n' roll of the highest order. "Culture Bomb" eagerly awaits and praises the end of the world over soaring melodies, while "Holy Men" might as well describe Kyle Nicolaides [vocals, guitar], Daniel Curcio [bass], and Tony Cupito [drums], the three musicians making all this wonderfully wild rock.

    Beware of Darkness is unique, undeniable, and utterly unpredictable. Meet rock music's saviors.
