Music Awards. Review by REVOLVER MAGAZINE The World's Loudest Rock Magazine! HIPNOSTIC Dissolve Me (Mindblown) The tuneful debut from this Orange County, California, hard-rock trio packs a mean wallop. Singer/guitarist Blake Hastings' raspy vocals conjure Bon Scott and Layne Staley barking into the same mic, and the group's roaring riffs and clever arrangements strike a nerve during the swaggering 'Ant Hill,' the charging 'Heels on a Plank,' and the bluesy title track. There are some hypnotic interludes courtesy of Hastings' dulcimer, yet Hipnostic do best when they're belting it out.
