not bad at all!
on 1 August 2006
Powerman 5000 are an industrial hard rock band that have rob zombies brother spider one as the lead vocalist,im certain that they used that fact in their favour over the years,but in truth this album deserves its own plaudits for being a pretty good release,maybe not earth changing and for the reviewer to say that this is better than slipknot,well i cant agree with that,but this is a solid if not quite brilliant in its execution.
Released in 1999,its clear that there is a feel of nu metal to this at times,but much to my surprise it doesnt sound like white zombies stuff and spiders vocals are more clear than his big brothers,the album also has some pretty cool riffs and has a kookiness reserved for bands like mushroomhead and dog fashion disco so there is a good mixture of sounds going on here.Key songs include super nova goes pop,when worlds collide and nobodys real,some of the songs later on sound a little samey and lose direstion hence the three star rating but this isnt bad stuff at all and is certainly worth a wee gamble.
