SLANDERIN, THE: A Rhumba of Rattlesnakes, a Murder of Crows: CD

Dec 01, 2009

This is one very fucking cool CD. The Slanderin don’t do anything unique by any means. Their lyrics are horror themed like The Misfits, their music is mostly rockabilly like Reverend Horton Heat (even got the stand up bass) and the vocals seem a lot like Lemmy is singing a lot of them (my friend Darby gave me an even better description: TSOL meets Dick Dale meets The Misfits). Their songs vary a bit from surf guitar to straight up rockabilly to even a waltz (which is one of the best songs on the CD). If you are a fan of this type of music, you will no doubt enjoy The Slanderin. I have worn out this CD already and am looking forward to their next one.
