AdapterAdapter- Redeemer Album!
This band is from Attleboro, MA. I absolutely think this band is worthy of checking out. I don’t usually stream a whole album in this spot, but they really don’t have a video to speak of (outside of live performances). This is a two piece band, yes, just guitar and drums, plus some harmonica. I have seen them and they are a sight to see. Listen to the album and you tell me that they don’t have a full sound! If you love heavy blues and Black Sabbath, then gives these guys a listen. Anyway, check them out, you can learn more about them on their Facebook page: here.
