LAST DEAL, THE: Berdache: CD

Jul 25, 2008

The biography of this band says it’s for fans of Isis, Mogwai, Fugazi, Neurosis, the Clash and Husker Du. I don’t hear any of that whatsoever. Did they send me the right CD? All I’m hearing is The Appleseed Cast, All State Champion, and this band I reviewed a few issues ago called The Paper Champions. It’s not horrible but it’s average indie rock, not at all the “brooding, guitar-driven, technical-yet-tuneful brand of Metal-marinated Rock n’ roll” that their bio promises.
