The Salvage Retrograde
New Mexico, United States
Hard Rock / Experimental
The best independent hard rock you've never heard!!
"Upon first listen, Bringer of Light, the new record by Burque rock and rollers The Salvage Retrograde, sure sounds like that thing called rocanrol music. There’s that emphatic voice rising up on just about every track, the emphasis on a notoriously noisy electric guitar and most importantly a brutal and relentless rhythm section carving out space the way a decent skateboard artist handles a very slow and long hill covered in bits of broken glass. I guess I’d term this release to be cock rock, mostly because it’s diggably decent, but my wife would never listen to it, claiming that it postures too brazenly toward the masculine. But whatever; it’s still a very good record, more absorbing, then say the last release by fellow Burqueño man-rock advocates SuperGiant; tunes like “The Hole I Dug,” “Age of Fire” and “Rounds” have a rousing, antic energy that triumpantly screams “Hell yeah!”

The online review is under the reviewer "Sonic Reducer" under the title James Whiton....the review holds 3 reviews, mine is the last.
This album was entirely self funded and self produced by Damian Necochea.
The vision is to create strong independent music in hopes of aspiring other musicians or artists to give their work their all with complete disregard of any gatekeeper.
The music is ultimately made to empower with lyrics commenting on current social issues and paints post-apocalyptic imagery to embed a sense of haste to change our destructive ways lest we drive ourselves into oblivion.
I hope you dig it and you can expect to hear a lot more from The Salvage Retrograde.....striving to make passionate and original music is my lifelong mission.
My death will be the day I stop creating!!
