4.0 out of 5 stars Amen - (mu)Sick of it all, 25 April 2004
This review is from: Death Before Musick (Audio CD)
These past few years have not been kind to Amen. After their explosiveself titled debut on Roadrunner, they were kicked off the label, only tosign on to Virgin to make 'We Have Come For Parents'. Despite the hypearound Amen at the time, they were kicked off the label and as a result,stopped the production of their would-be third album. With all theoriginal members jumping ship, and no longer associated with RossRobinson, Amen should be dead and gone. But now that's not thecase.
Recorded at various garages and studio's, with mainman CaseyChaos on all instruments except the drums, Amen have been resurrectedthanks to Daron Malakian (of System of a Down fame), signing Amen to hiseatURmusic imprint on Colombia records. As with most punk music, Amendoesn't stray too far from previous efforts. With the music still ascaustic (on the borderline between punk and metal), and subject matterstill aimed at the faults of American popular culture, although will neverlive up to their debut album, Amen have come up with another album toplease their fanbase, with Casey Chaos sounding like a man against allodds, and with nothing to loose.
Personal highlights include Bring Me The Heads, Please Kill Me,EXTERMINATE!, F**k in LA and new single California Bleeding, these songsare tailor made to be fan favourites at their gigs (I have seen them twiceand Amen, in any shape or form, always put on an explosive performance,with Casey Chaos one of the greatest frontmen around). Which might beironic as at time of writing, the new members of Amen are reported to havewalked out on Casey Chaos in England. I hope this doesn't lead to more badluck (let alone another label search), as Amen in my opinion are one ofthe true punk bands around, and it shows on 'Death Before Musick'.
