Easily the best album of 2014, this is an excellent debut from the Glaswegian trio. Vocalist, Dale Barclay, sneers, snarls and emotes his way across a sometimes menacing, sometimes melancholic soundscape, whilst his fellow bandmates (who apparently have now been replaced!!) alternately thrash, stomp and tiptoe amidst the maelstrom.

'Here It Comes Again' is the standout track; a deceptively calm intro gives way to a beast unleashed - repetition here adds to the feeling of tension. Brilliant. The first few tracks follow a similar, muscular pattern, but at the records' midway point, the mood darkens; the previous Stooges/Birthday Party/ Alice Cooper/Alex Harvey influences give way to the sort of feel Lou Reed summoned up for his claustrophobic 'Berlin' - quiet, desperate angst. There's some really inventive, creative musicianship on show here.

Straight out the traps with 'I'm a Vampire', sung with such venom you understand how snakeheads appears in the band name. I love the way the tracks meld together throughout the album and have to mention 'Here It Comes Again' which features pounding bass & drums with thrashes of guitar and manic Glaswegian vocals. A superb debut album and I for one can't wait to see what these totally Amazing Snakeheads come up with next.

Amazing debut album. From the raw energy of "Here It Comes Again" to the rhapsodising jazz of "Every Guy Wants To Be Her Baby", The Amazing Snakeheads will ensnare and enrapture your ears.

Best album of the year, undoubtedly an antidote to sugar and saccharine mainstream pop/rock, best live act 2014. If you dont know whats happening its because you dont know the Snakeheads

Raw, passionate, rasping, spitting, confrontational, gritty rock n roll. These songs are even better live.
