Opening up with “Help In The Head” it’s apparent we’ll be dealing with a variety of influences from the word go. Vocalist Todd Fink carries similar tones to the likes of indie artists such as KASABIAN, while musically it’s slightly grungy, a little punky and very alternative; interesting stuff. “Mental Radio” introduces more of a synthesized electronic sound, but it’s quite straightforward, generally consistent throughout, plodding along enjoyably enough before “Evil Voices” unleashes some quality up-beat indie rock. It’s got a brilliantly catchy chorus and is easily an album highlight.
“Salt My Doom” is an altogether different kettle of fish, far brasher, more intense and as far as this album extends, it’s heavier too, delivering a short burst of energy, while “Animal Needs” on the other hand is fairly monotonous in a KRAFTWERK sort of way, albeit rockier. “Loss Of Head”, “Your Stranger” and “Lesson From The Darkness” keep everything flowing smoothly, before we eventually finish up on “Damage Control”; a relatively slow, sullen anti-climax.
It’s a shame really that, these four guys from Nebraska have been at it since the mid-nineties…yet they’re relatively unknown within the UK. Hopefully “Doom Abuse” can change that, it’s well worth checking out, whoever you prefer to trust, me OR Bam.
