While I really, really appreciate the title and lyrics to “A Bunch of Your Friends Have Been Raped, It’s Time You Stopped Making Jokes about Rape,” there’s unfortunately little else I can recommend about this band. Entirely too drawn out and reliant on synthesizers and effects-laden vocals, it just trudges on and on. Fourteen songs of what could generously be called prog rock and ungenerously be called a jam band made up of motorcycle guys from the first Tron movie if they were still in junior high. Back to the drawing board, fellas: Dio and Iggy Pop covers did not come close to saving this.
