Soil turned out to be dirty work; SOIL, QMU, Glasgow, April 6.

Byline: GAVIN LIDDELL

HARKING back to the days of long-haired metal, Soil try to breath new life into Metallica-style riffs.

Songs structured around bone- crushing riffs coupled with modern time breaks makes their music as subtle as their dress sense.

The men in black seemed intent in creating yet another take on heavy rock rather than writing some good tunes. The dated metal created enough volume and energy to move the crowd, but it could prove little else.

The cliched antics by the frontman put the icing on the cake of a gig that was 10 years late in the making. There could be grounds for an ironic parody, but the lengths they went to made it seem unlikely.

The only thing missing was the widdling solos.
