HELL CITY KINGS / WHITE RHINO: Split: 7”

Mar 27, 2012

The Hell City Kings side starts out well enough, very Coliseum-inspired, then the chorus slowly just takes over and they repeat it way too many times. I really didn’t dig it at all, and the fact that I just have one song to go off doesn’t help. Neither does the horrific solo throughout the incessant chorus. White Rhino, let’s see here; equally foreboding black and white cover, but will it deliver? Not really. Kind of a much heavier Queens Of The Stone Age—basic riffs, repeated a few times without being able to build up the tension and then a guy whose voice just wasn’t made for blues-inspired heavy rock. Really makes me appreciate Motörhead that much more.
