Mark finds much to get excited about with this new EP from Canada
Seven Days on a Train is the latest release from Montreal Quebec alternative rockers ‘Vinyl Hero’. A five track EP influenced by Queens of the Stone Age and Stone Temple Pilots. Two big bands to be swayed by, so no pressure at all then.

First single ‘Keith Richards’ a track about the man, the legend, the guitarist of Rolling Stones is the first song on the EP and the first song sent to the airwaves. Just like its namesake the song is full on bluesy guitar riffs with a superb introduction to some strong rock vocals.

There’s swagger in ‘Count My Blessings’ a catchy track in the mould of Nickleback. The flow leads perfectly on to the final track of this EP, Real TV. An operatic guitar riff kicks off this track, then crunches in to good old heavy rock, that blends with a Creed style mood, but without the white vest punching the air while standing on a rock.
