OK OK, So this record has been out for awhile, but I want everyone to know that these guys are seriously left in the dark by all fiends of metal.
At first listen to Neck, I was confused, And I mean really confused. So many different styles merged into one, only gets me to scratch my head. But like a cancerous boil, it grew on me. Now I have not been able to get this out of my cd player. Which isn't a bad thing.
Grouped into hardcore for the hardcore-ish vocals, I seriously wouldn't know what style to put this monstrosity of a band in. This album sees the band getting tighter and tighter. Like a Dolphin's ass, Water tight. Stingmask 2 opens this album up with a numetal style of playing but then just gets creepier as the song continues. Crawl Away has a really good acoustic opening that just leads to craziness, also with clean singing in it too!! Shun Fist is just a wacky song with little hoots and yells with a out of tune sounding sludge guitar. Although my beef with this album is that it has Three Crosses on it again!!!!!! Its the second time they have recorded the song, albeit its better this time around. But how many times can you rerecord a song? Open Window makes me cry. It reminds me of the good times..............(insert pussy comment here). Old Teeth is also a very deserving song as well. It just makes me upset that these guys haven't got any attention. Ah alas, the metal world and their ignorance.
Rating 10 of 10 (gave the 10 because of the overall wackiness and originality)
