BACKSLIDER: Motherfucker:: LP

Definitely interesting how they combine some serious rock swagger with down-tuned, punishing, bass-heavy mayhem and occasional blurs of metal and blitzkrieg powerviolence. Deep, nuanced recording and excellent musicianship by this trio that describes themselves as “total pain rock.” Unfortunately, the over-the-top, constipated-scary-monster vocals come dangerously close to souring the entire affair for this delicate listener.
