Okay so MARBLE CITY SECRETS ARE OFF IN THE BLACK ain't the snappiest title in the world. As a matter of fact the curious title is just as curious as the moniker of this power trio hailing from Alabama but they have released some thing that you don't hear a lot of any more amongst the current active rock set - good old fashioned storytelling. Yes we've got a concept album on our hands - one that explores the corruption and the secrets that plague the titular Marble City. Front man and primary songwriter JOSH JONES combines the intrigue of TENESSEE WILLIAMS with the kind of grunge-inspired fracas that made ALICE IN CHAINS and SOUNDGARDEN the rock legends that they are today. But keep in mind that there is nothing nostalgic about BEITTHEMEANS but it is refreshing to hear actual subject matter being brought back into rock music.
