Bethlehem stalwarts Poker Face are back with Peace or War, proof that they continue to be one of the best hard rock bands around. The first three songs establish up front that this is going to be another ass-kickin’ ride, but lately a more varied, classic rock vibe has been blending with their grunge-with-harmonies sound. P.O.W. was recorded with producer/engineer Toby Wright, who has worked with Metallica, Alice In Chains, KoRn, and many more. After working with Poker Face, he commented that they “have the sound of Alice In Chains and the soul of Bob Marley.” It’s a dead-on description. Brett Griffiths’ guitar playing is virtuosic and unpredictable. His solos often seem to drop in from outer space and make you shake your head in disbelief. It’s a testament to the other players in the band that Brett’s skills don’t sound out of place. Paul Topete’s voice is commanding and Dennis Beidler’s vital bass playing and harmonies are the glue that make this band’s chemistry untouchable. Poker Face is also a highly controversial band, deeply entrenched in national and global conspiracy theories that run the gamut. How far you want to go down the rabbit hole with them is up to you, but there’s no denying that they rock like few others. (www.pokerface.com)
