JESUS FUCKING CHRIST: Life’s Hateful Seed: LP

The band with the total cool punk name comes back with another record that you will either love or not get. It’s mid-tempo punk rock with a strong metallic rock sound that doesn’t have to rely on speed as a source of power. This time out, they seem to get more comfortable around each other and have expanded on their sound; experimenting more with sounds, time changes, and riffs to create a darker brooding sound. But the music still retains its charging energy and keeps up the feeling of rocking out. It also has more of a dual vocal attack this time around, with one being yelled and the other more guttural, adding to a more dynamic output. This is one of those that the more you listen, the more you grow to like.
