This is one of the guys from goregrind grandfathers Carcass, doing covers of country songs. It sounds like a stupid idea, I know. I was fully prepared to rip this album a new one when I put it on, but it was surprisingly good. The covers are pretty straight-forward and faithful, with the exception of the distorted guitars (a little unnecessary) and Jeff’s surprisingly Shane MacGowan-esque voice. It sounds ridiculous, I know, but it’s actually pretty good. It’s always nice when a “genre” musician tries something different and pulls it off successfully. Recommended.
