A sludgy, mid-1990s alt-rock sound issues forth from Utility’s Bull In The Shop. Deliberate, crunchy guitar riffs match nicely with classic / hair rock-style drums. There are nods made throughout this effort to acts like Deep Purple and early-1980s-era Motley Crue. By whipping in just a hint of grunge music to Bull In The Shop, Utility is able to make something bold and new while hitting some of the high-water marks of last century’s heavy music. The vocals deserve a bit more ink too; by taking up hints of Boston and Layne Staley, they are able to infect fans’ minds for months after the track concludes.
