While many seem to write this one off as just another novelty album, I can't seem to get enough of it. Jeff Walker (ex-CARCASS) has done the unimaginable. He has assembled troops from some early European death, doom, and grind bands and released an album of classic country music covers. This may be one of the quirkiest undertakings in the history of metal.

Joining Walker on this venture are fellow former members of CARCASS Ken Owen and Bill Steer (the latter plays some awesome leads on this). However, that is just the tip of the iceberg. Other noticeable faces on this opus are members or former members of AMORPHIS, ENTOMBED, PARADISE LOST, ANATHEMA, FAITH NO MORE, NAPALM DEATH, and many more.

Musically, the songs on this album retain their country spirit and credibility, but they are played with metal instrumentation. There are nuances and sound effects added to spice them up, even. At times, Walker's gravelly voice sounds reminiscent of Alice Cooper and Dave Mustaine. Other times, he dares us with bastardized vocal melody. He will be the first to tell you not to take this serious. It was meant to be funny. Hell, what else could it be? Covering songs by JOHNNY CASH, HANK WILLIAMS, KRIS KRISTOFFERSON, JOHN DENVER, etc. is a bold statement from a man who has spent nearly a decade completely invisible in the music world. If you have a musical sense of humor, you will dig this, if you don't, don't bother.

Sit back in your grandpa's rockin' chair, crack open a beer (or some whiskey), throw this on, and laugh away your troubles.

Maximum Metal Rating Legend - Click for Full Details
5 Excellent - Buy it and say a prayer to the metal gods that you were tuned on to this masterpiece. A classic.
4-4.5 Great - Almost perfect records but there's probably a clunker or a lacking somewhere to keep it from perfection. You won't feel bad about dropping some bones on these.
3.5 Good - Most of the record is good, but there may be some filler. This is the OK range where you'd search for the record on sale or used.
3 Average - Some good songs, some bad ones at about a half/half ratio. Could show skills but be dull overall. Redeeming qualities for indy bands are effort and passion. Majors that don't try or suck outright end up here.
2-2.5 Fair - Worth a listen, but best obtained by collectors. There is much better metal out there.
1-1.5 Bad - Major problems with music, lyrics, production, etc.
0 Terrible or an otherwise waste of your life and time.

Note: Reviews are graded from 0-5, anything higher or not showing is from our old style. Scores, however, do not reveal the important features. The written review that accompanies the ratings is the best source of information regarding the music on our site. Reviewing is opinionated, not a qualitative science, so scores are personal to the reviewer and could reflect anything from being technically brilliant to gloriously cheesy fun.

Demos and independent releases get some slack since the bands are often spent broke supporting themselves and trying to improve. Major releases usually have big financial backing, so they may be judged by a heavier hand. All scores can be eventually adjusted up or down by comparison of subsequent releases by the same band. We attempt to keep biases out of reviews and be advocates of the consumer without the undo influence of any band, label, management, promoter, etc.

The best way to determine how much you may like certain music is to listen to it yourself.
