    Young Guns fire off the kind of rock 'n' roll that's been missing from the 21st century.

    It's not that they're another throwback to either the heyday of Led Zeppelin or Guns N' Roses either. They're not grunge holdovers or nu metal relics. They're simply a brilliantly badass modern rock band with the ability to fuse soaring hooks, intricate instrumentation, and overpowering arena-ready bombast. Their latest album, Bones, is built on towering melodies and gnashing riffs.

    "I Was Born, I Have Lived, I Will Surely Die" bursts out of the gate with reckless guitars and singer Gustav Wood's vocals resounding immensely. "Dearly Departed" comes to life as both haunting and rapturous, while the eponymous single was made for soccer stadium sing-a-longs. "Towers" slips from ethereal electronics into pensive lyrics and a swaying hook. After a shining "Headlights", the epic closer "Broadfields" sees Wood's range reach divine heights that rival the most vulnerable moments of Incubus's best fare.

    At the end of the day, Young Guns are peerless and locked and loaded for rock 'n' roll dominance soon.
