5.0 out of 5 stars Fields Of Disbelief, 18 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Fields of Disbelief (Audio CD)
2000’s Fields Of Disbelief is the forth full-length studio album by the Texan Groove Metal band Pissing Razors (or third, if you discount their independent debut). It was their final album with original singer Joe Rodriguez.

The album sees a slight evolution of the band’s sound, possibly due to songwriting contributions from new guitarist Cesar Soto. The band sound less like Pantera on this record than earlier releases and try out a few new things now and again. Joe Rodriguez also tries to expand his vocal range on this album too, and in a way there is more light and shade than on previous records (even an attempt at melody on the Title Track!).

Diversity doesn’t mean compromise however; and Fields Of Disbelief still absolutely sounds like Pissing Razors and you still get angry, venomous music full of complex time-changes, flashy technical drumming from the immensely skilled Eddie Garcia, and a constant mixture of thrashy energy and big grooves. The guitar solos are fewer and farther between here, on shorter when they do show up, but that is made up for in part with some crazy spindly riffs and bursts of exciting.

This record in particular within the band’s discography sounds slightly ahead of its time and is already covering ground that bands like Devildriver and Lamb Of God would get accolades for a few years later.

It’s a tight, filler-free record with a solid production job, lot of attitude in the performances and a lot of musical chops. Highlights include the absolutely furious sounding “Forked Tongue,” the complex “Ruin” and the “The Other Side.”

Overall, this is a worthwhile addition to your collection if you like the band, and would make a fine introduction for new people wanting to check out this underrated band.
