Covergeist has got the intoxicating, sweat-fueled lusting and passion of the “rock-n-rolla” thing down solid, and his long-time-coming new full length One More Night is the time capsule of the audio masterpiece that gritty rock music can be. The team at Cherry Sound Studios (Chris Guillot and Gus Hoffman) have produced what just might be the most honest rock and roll record Denver has seen in years.
Covergeist is the attitude of George Thorogood mixed with the image of The Misfits, and the sound of early hard rock scratching from the record player mixed with modern studio production. The album is heavy on guitar and hard hitting vocals. From the catchy intro of the album’s opening track “I Saw Her Standing There” right through a phenomenal full album with lyrics depicting his love of metal, playing in a rock band, and the culture of drugs, women and the musicians life, Covergeist is Denver’s current representation of real rock music, unhinged by uncertainties and unafraid to showcase a fearless attitude. Get this record, turn it up loud, and nod your head to a record that deserves as much attention from the listening public as it got from its creators during the gestation period.
