14 years since the band's last album, and these guys haven't missed a step. Chaotic, feedback-ridden sludge the way it was meant to be played. Perfect music for those drunken stupor nights where you want to smash out the neighbors windows with your empty beer bottles.
This could possibly be the best Meatmen album ever recorded. Definitely good to see Tesco back after an 18 year absence. His new backing band consists of ex-members of Chapstik (also a good MI band) and totally appear to be the best guys for the job. Fun, offensive, and very solid album. If you're already a fan, you know what to expect.
When the Accused reunited and split again, several year ago, Tommy retained the band name and released a new album with a bunch of hired goons. Blaine and Alex opted to start fresh with Toe Tag. So, what we have here is something similar to old Accused, but slightly slower, rawer, and with a bit of Black Sabbath influence. Way better that "Curse of Martha Splatterhead" and definitely worth checking out, whether you're a fan of old Accused or not. The live bonus tracks don't sound too bad either.
