Review of Dearly Beloved – Enduro (eOne Music Canada)

Dearly BelovedThe restless, frantic pace heard throughout the latest record from Toronto riff-rock band Dearly Beloved is no accident but rather captures the group following their gut instincts. With only four of the record’s 12 tracks breaking the three-minute mark, every song on Enduro is a concentrated burst of raucous guitars and pounding drums amid occasional feedback. What may surprise some however are the tuneful melodies that the band is able to elicit in such short order. Fans of Queens of the Stone Age will want to seek this record out pronto.
