FETISH: World Eater: CD

If I am reviewing a band I have never heard of before, I like to give it a listen completely blind. No internet search, no liner notes, just the tunes. It can often have hilarious results. I popped in the Fetish CD and the first thought that popped into my head was “Poison Idea much?” As the album progressed, I started to realize that not only do they remind me a lot of the Portland’s Kings of Punk themselves, but they are good at it. I mean really good. It started to make me a little mad, as in, “Where do these guys get off being so damn good at Poison Idea?” I figured I better find out what the deal is with these guys. One web search and it instantly makes sense. This six-piece band features three ex-Poison Idea members and three members of Long Knife (a band long considered as the bastard sons of Poison Idea). Legitimacy verified. This album is over-the-top amazing. Not really a fan of the band name or the album art, but whatever, it’s about the fucking music!
