I saw this band back in September at a club called the Parkside in San Francisco not knowing what to expect. The band completely laid waste to the club with one of the most untamed performances I've ever witnessed. The singer was a bloody mess by the end of the night. I couldn't wait to get my hands on this debut album, but I feared that there was probably no way they could equal the wild din they created live. Well, my fears were washed away within seconds of putting this in my CD player. Raw, primitive and insanely aggressive. This is an album that wants to chew you up and spit you out. Much to my surprise, there are actually a few poppy velvet-esque songs peppered throughout that are very well written. If you don't have a taste for the noisy stuff then you'd best stay away, but if you like your rock n' roll crude and in your face then this thing delivers in spades.
