I figured I would start to blog about some of the heavier music that does not get as much exposure, but still kicks ass. I'm not saying that all (or any) of this music should get masive AirPlay. Our sales people wouldn't be able to sell it. Sad but true, but it's the nature of the business. I'm not going to get all technical in my reviews. I'm not a musician. I don't think or act like I'm a be all end all of music. I can just tell what I think rocks.
The subject today is the band Surgical Meth Machine. It is the new band started by Al Jourgensen of Ministry. Al brings the speed and aggression on this industrial beat down. Most songs clock in around 220 beats per minute. Fast, furious, and in your face is the way they bring it. Listen to it while driving and try not to speed. Impossible! The vocals aren't straightforward though, if you are looking for a standard song structure. They are at times shouted, distorted, and contorted. On the song Unlistenable, he takes shots at Iron Maiden, Megadeth, and Lamb of God. It all turns out to be in jest (?) though as he even slags his own Ministry. The last song I'm Invisible is slow and lo-fi. Al has said that the tempo slowed once he moved to Texas and got his medical marijuana card. As a whole, this album is a fierce industrial juggernaut. It deserves to be played at insanely loud volume!
