PSYCHO-PATH: The Ass-Soul of Psycho-Path: CD

The front cover is a naked woman on her stomach, shown from the side from her upper back on down. She’s tied up in rope, causing her feet to come back towards her butt. She also has a tattoo on her right hip, black stiletto heels on her feet, and a knife shoved up her ass. And there is a pool of blood coming from underneath her. I’m really at a loss as to what else to say that might be of any interest after that description. Beyond that cover, though, the packaging is really nice, with good color photos in a glossy, two paneled booklet. As for the sound, it really doesn’t live up to anything you might expect based on the front cover. Sultry, sexy female vocals (à la Amy Adoyzie) front a band sounding a lot like Girls Against Boys with songs ranging from three to eleven minutes. They’re perfectly fine; I just can’t help but feel as though after witnessing the results of an ass-raping with a knife displayed on the front cover, everything else about the band seems “meh.”
