This album is all the proof anyone needs to show how talented Johnny Truant are. Everything is spot-on; the production, the vocals, the riffs, the song structures. This is an album that flows brilliantly from start to finish, leaving the listener with a complete sense of awe.
In a scene that was fast becoming full of floppy fringes and no musical credibility, Johnny Truant brought this album out as a welcome breath of fresh air. The songs are intelligently written, balancing heavyness with technicality and melody, creating a truly unique listening experience.
The opening track 'I Love You Even Though You're A Zombie Now' hits you like a smack round the chops, with a blastbeat-ridden intro and vocalist Olly's intense screams. Not a generic breakdown in sight. And, although this may have alienated some of the diehard scene kids, it earns them major credibility from everyone that matters. The songs have atmosphere when it's most needed and any heavy music fan will appreciate their ability to create such a diverse yet definitive sound. There's everything you could ask for. From pumelling heavyness and crazy time signatures, to a beautifully written instrumental entitled 'Vultures', Johnny Truant don't put a foot wrong.
Buy this album, they could just be your new favourite band.
