SUITE 666: Pretty Corpses: CDEP

I amuse myself sometimes. I will look at certain releases and think right off the bat I’m going to dislike it. I thought the same thing here. But the first track, “Personal Safety of Midget,” starts with a bass line that reminded me of a cross of the intro to the Circle Jerks’ “Trapped” and Black Flag’s intro to “Six Pack.” Then the band blast forward with a punk meets death rock attack that reminded me of the Super Heroines because of the dual female vocals. Whoa! I’m wrong again. Then the other tracks veered into cowpunk, straight forward punk and pop punk territories. Not sure if this is their debut. But from what I have heard so far, I like what I hear.
