BY-PRODUCTS, THE: Praying Mantüs: CD

Jan 26, 2021

This record started off great, with full speed ahead punk rock that sounds like it was born and bred on SST records. The vocals have a bit of a John Reis thing going on, only they sound a bit low in the mix. After about the fourth song, the buzz from the first couple started to wear off and some of the songs lost my interest. With better art direction, mixing, and mastering I wouldn't be surprised if their next record kills. –Ryan Nichols (Collision Course)
