PITCH BLACK: This Is the Modern Sound: CD

This goes in kinda sounding like (International) Noise Conspiracy and comes out kinda sounding like the Murder City Devils. I am a little wary of this record. The artwork is really “pro” and the whole thing comes across looking like a Target commercial. The music’s not bad, just a little contrived. I kinda get the feeling this band wants to “make it,” and that kinda makes me not like them. I don’t trust ’em.
