AMERICAN SUICIDE: Self-titled: CDEP-R

Mar 22, 2007

I’m reading though this band’s one sheet and I notice that this release was produced by Jim Pearlman of Blue Oyster Cult and The Clash fame. That’s fucking sweet. Oh, wait—that was Sandy Pearlman! Well, maybe it’s his cousin or something. Anyway, this crisp sounding demo starts off with “Coming Back” and I think they’re pouring an icy cold one into a glass at the beginning of the song to get thing revved up. Sounds like the best drinking song since “Drinking and Driving.” The band keeps the amps cranked for the whole deal and this sounds really good at high volume. They tend to remind me of a twisted concoction of Scream and Junkyard. All in all, probably the hottest rock to come out of Pensacola since the last NASCAR crash. But at four songs, this is a quick fix. I hope more is on the way.
