SETBACKS: Ded Reckoning: CD

Technical punk with some riffage that borders on metal but maybe doesn’t take the full plunge. It is expertly produced and it all holds together well. I like the back cover art. Did someone just get abducted? Or were the aliens just observing? “Just Words” and the title track kicked the heaviness into overdrive just enough to make it interesting. These dudes all live in different countries so getting together for band practice must be rough. –Sean Koepenick (Morning Wood, [email protected])
