Where the Reviewing of Musical works are Reviewed from earlier Decades. Of any Style, Genre or Culture, the Review would be best to fit the in the "Decades" category as long as they are before the year 2000.

a brief "Tweet” from James Moon on my "Twitter”, I was curious of the bands’
name: "Kassoma”, which led me to take a little listen at the YouTube video that
they had posted and have a listen…What happened next was something that both
myself and The Dark Tower had not done in a long time – We broke this band down
to its basic mechanics, it’s mere fundamental beginning’s, while reassembling,
building up and scrutinizing the instruments of this monstrously huge Manchester
music sensation – that is according to my two nine year old daughters, however.
As well as "Kassoma”
having one of the greatest – catchiest – names on the music circuit so far in
2013, it was while listening to "Control” we discovered the new sound with a
slightly respective essence of a distant past. Certainly, the likes of Indie’s
Groups within todays mish-mash and sometimes mixed up ebb flowing music scene
have missed something along the way, but where many have faltered, it would
appear "Kassoma” have succeeded. The straight laced melody hinging at the end
of a seriously hardened introduction has surpassed the risk of failure, bringing
in the guitar while James Moon begins his lyrical journey of a ballad/soft rock
enlightenment that will mark that pivotal remaking, resounding frequency of
sound that has set the music industry ablaze with equal curiosity and wonder.
As with The
Dark Tower, and indeed the music that we alone hand select to review, the usual
jolt that we acquire with past bands, groups and solo artists normally draw an
amount of shall we say "Electricity”, while our food for thought usually
progresses from the melodic music that fills our yearning for "Public Interest”.
However, with the Manchester based "Kassoma”, everything has been paused,
stopped even, to the extent where we have actually broken the first rule of our
law in which to inform the masses of our "Verdict”. Not a lot of people will
like what we have to say, while the many will be sure relieved to hear the
outcome that we believe is the best decision in our (short but fruitful) history
of being a "Music Review Site”.
Our Honest Verdict…
had us up on our feet, enlightening the streets and locations that we have driven
around, had people remark with anxious bated breath on how they love the new
sound and asking where they can get the single, and most of all, we fear that
we may have caused an uprising of avid "Kassoma” followers here in West
Yorkshire – sorry guys. As far as the single is concerned, we love it, we can’t
get enough of giving it maxed out "Air Play” while mobile, and we are thrilled,
honoured and in the very best way and method of "Thanks”, we have become
engrossed in awaiting your next single…And, we are so sure that "Kassoma” will
have no problems with the current single, or the entry into a Top 10 spot. The
Dark Tower will try its very best not to lose sight of this sensational bands
progress through their journey to the top and respect Mr Moon’s privacy, but
keep in touch when possible between his bands "World Tours”.

Upbeat, Anthemic, Atmospheric, Intense, Dramatic & you have Kassoma.
As we have
said already, we at "The Dark Tower” seldom deal with new Bands, Groups or Solo
Artist’s as a rule. But we would like it very much if you would take a look at
the Debut Video Track "Control”, and, if you like it then click "Like”, if you
would like to follow the band, then please click on "Subscribe”, and it goes
without saying that everyone likes to show their very own support now and again
by "Commenting”. This is the "Upbeat”, the "Anthemic” sound of now, the "Atmospheric”
feel that many have been waiting for, the "Intense” and "Dramatic” substance
that truly is "KASSOMA”…Rock On…
