DWARVES: Invented Rock ‘n’Roll: LP

Like I was saying last issue, 2014 is the year of the Dwarves. This latest full length offering from the undisputed Masters of Mayhem has yet another generation shaking their asses and questioning their morals. You have got to hand it to Blag Dahlia and company. Very few bands can come from the depths of depravity that the Dwarves have mined and survive as a band for thirty-plus years, let alone continue to evolve and actually get better. Punk, hardcore, pop, rock… The Dwarves do it all, and do it all better than most. As far as this record is concerned, I think that it’s the most completely cohesive album they’ve done since The Dwarves Are Young and Good Looking (holy shit, did that really come out twenty years ago?). There isn’t a dud to be found. As usual, the songs are so catchy and beg to be sung along with… You might want to be aware of your surroundings when you’re singing aloud though.
