Dead Sara Is Weathering the Storm

Blazing hard rock might signal a sea change

"Weatherman" is still bubbling in the lower levels of the Rock Songs chart; right now it exists in a clump of bands that also invoke the grim reaper (the gloomy Los Angeles act Five Finger Death Punch, the Canadian mope-rockers Art of Dying). If there's any justice, especially in this year when the word "rock" signifies a genre that is in flux enough so as to be anyone's game, Dead Sara will stake their claim as a new kind of standard-bearer, and finally loosen those ladies-barring signs from their place on the metaphorical tree trunk.
