Album Notes
“I really like this Deregulators album ‘Too Many Questions’, this singer [Ford Sundet] knows how to sing. Powerful voice, great articulation, and no grunting, no whining and not whimpy like a lot of other new heavy bands, no shrieking, just solid vocals. And real melody. The guitars are big, they growl, they are not shrill or harsh like a lot of other bands. And the playing is great, the production is big and strong and adds mystery. Large drum beats in the Alt-Rock, Funk space. Very nice work. Definitely a unique angle inside this one….This should appeal to adults !”

Deregulators is a new band with a debut CD “Too Many Questions” that combines the heaviness of mainstay bands like Nine Inch Nails, the songwriting melodic sense of Stone Temple Pilots, and some of the heavy psychedelic feel of Soundgarden. Big Vocals, Big Guitars and Big Drums, all at once.

What sets Deregulators apart is not just the huge sound production, thanks to mix engineering team of Marc Senasac and BZ Lewis, but Ford’s intense vocal performances that draw comparison to Paul Rodgers, Eric Clapton, Chris Cornell at their best. The depth and emotion of the lyrics, and abstraction and power of the phrases and singing approach. These are not love songs or “get down, party on” style songs. Far from it. These are brooding, intriguing dark songs with burried rays of hope and light and suggestions of immortality. The sheer power of Ford’s vocals is apparent on every track, with lines that you will remember for a long time to come, with strong melodies -- not just force and soul. Just enough tidbits of weird and wild guitar parts, this is not a shredders album. The guitar parts build and support the songs.

How would one decribe the Deregulators' 1st CD?
I liked the hard rock of the '70s. But regardless of how good it may have been, that was thirtysomething years ago. But what if some of the best bands of that genre were still together? What would they sound like now, with a healthy dose of slick 21st century production methods? Well imagine a band that combines the droning, harmonic rhythm guitar of Black Sabbath with the screaming lead guitar riffs of Joe Satriani. Now throw in high-energy vocals that sometimes echo the classic rock sound of Bad Company's Paul Rodgers but can also surprise with melodic sounds that evoke memories of the late, great Freddie Mercury. Now top it off with the slick production of a Steely Dan album and you have The Deregulators' first CD. It's what '70s hard rock should have become by now but make no mistake - there's nothing tired or mellow about their sound and I simply couldn't listen to this CD without cranking up the volume. My speakers honestly haven't had this good a workout in years, and I haven't had as much fun listening to them!

Their first CD is a good reminder of why I love Rock music form the 1970's. The group does a good job of balancing the vocals with the instruments. The variety of music is also impressive since they mix intense rock with more "mellow" cuts. The lyrics are not lost in the 1970's but are current. I'm looking forward to their next CD and the development of their style.


A psychadelic rock journey with engaging music, thoughtful lyrics
I found this a refreshingly engaging CD. I'd probably call it alternative rock, but I'm not sure that's an appropriate descriptor...begs the question: alternative to what? - classic rock? hard rock? psychedelic / acid rock? This album has elements of these and more. It's well recorded, has well balanced sound, intelligent lyrics and quality musicianship - solid drumming, with growly-but-articulate guitar sounds and brief but well-executed licks to punctuate the work. The lead vocalist really helps all the material hang together and, well... sing. As a first album by what I presume is a new group this album impressed me in some of the same ways I've always been impressed by Pink Floyd...the lyrics are interesting and thought-provoking, and seem to connect nicely across the various tracks. The tracks are reasonably diverse, yet come across as different moods or perspectives along a journey with a common thread. Sort of like a 21st century equivalent of what used to be called a tone poem in other times. A satisfying listen, especially if you're in a dark, mysterious or contemplative mood.
