Chrome hinted at a heavier sound from the band though their earlier shoegaze influences were still evident - not so on Happy Days
We've talked about Catherine Wheel many times throughout the years, finally we're getting around to reviewing an album - their 1995 release Happy Days. Although their sophomore album Chrome hinted at a heavier sound from the band, their earlier shoegaze influences were still evident. Not so on Happy Days, which amps up the volume and dips into the New Wave of British Heavy Metal the same way Billy Corgan would on the Smashing Pumpkins 'Gish' and 'Siamese Dream.' Many fans were caught off guard while the band attracted a whole new audience thanks to a pair of semi-successful singles. Does Catherine Wheel's embrace of metal riffage stand the test time? Tune in to find out.
