In less than two years since forming, SONS OF TEXAS are steadily working their way through the mainstream rock sector. Their debut album “Baptized in the Rio Grande” has all the staples of a successful contemporary hard rock album, which is good for making a quick strike impression upon their AOR-targeted audience. That being said, the appeal of “Baptized in the Rio Grande” is limited mostly to this demographic. SONS OF TEXAS are about melodic agro rock, employing a little bit of SEVENDUST plus a little bit of BLACK LABEL SOCIETY, DROWNING POOL and NONPOINT. Produced by Josh Wilbur (LAMB OF GOD, GOJIRA), “Baptized in the Rio Grande” is a professional, if predictable newcomer’s howdy yielding a couple of cool surprises along the way.
