THIS CD ROCKS! THIS
IS WHAT I CALL...MUSIC TO GET FUCKED UP TO!
I was a bit surprised when I found out that
Alabama Thunder Pussy (ATP) is not actually from Alabama. I had heard of
the band before I got a hold of this CD but I had not heard them. In
general, this band sounds like Southern Metal to me which has a very
district sound reminiscent of Classic rock. You might ask “what
are some bands that are deemed as “southern” metal?” Bands like
Corrosion Of Conformity and Clutch. So you have an idea what I am
talking about. Although the band’s guitars and drum work sounds like
COC, the vocalist sounds a tad different. Here is my synopsis.
I like songs that are bit unusual! This song
is very unorthodox! The guitars and the bass are going down the scale
then playing back up the scale while the drum beat is a standard rock
beat. The vocals this time remind me kind of like Jay from Kilgore but a
lot more guttural! Almost Death Metal guttural in sounding. The
rest of the song is very dark sounding I could see a pit forming to this
song. If you listen closely you can here a glass tapping sound in the
background. I really like this song, two
thumbs up here!
A fast paced song more so than the others on the CD. This
song has a lot of classic rock influence at least in the way the
guitars sound. Instead of the usual distortion you here
in bands like Slayer and so forth, it’s more of
a fuzz/overdrive sound and it sounds really nice when the drummer hits
his crash cymbals with this sound. The song eventually slows down but
the vocals, drums and guitars are just pounding! This is another
worthy song to bring and play at a party were everyone is going to get
Who the heck comes up with the song names? The
song involves a lot of screaming. I am beginning to notice that the
majority of these songs make me want to drink! This is another great
“Party” song. It starts out roaring then it slows down
towards the middle and the songs ends up slowing down and instead
of chugging guitars, ends on a more technical type of riffing. It’s
kind of like “Blasphemy” it has a medium fast pace to it that you
could sit down and chat with friends and have this in the background.
This song bleeds Southern Rock in a huge way.
Bluesy guitar work mixed in with almost dry sounding drums that
are a lot like the Southern Rock of Old. This song definitely has
a rock feel to it and anyone who gets paid by the hour can really relate
to the lyrics. I can hear this song blasting at any “hole in the
wall” bar. This song’s production is top notch. There’s no reason
why this wouldn’t appease the masses. When the song kicked it, I
was banging my head the whole time. It’s that type of song.
Overall, I have listened to this CD more than a few times and I really
like it. For something of this genre I found it a surprise that I like
it so much. Besides of the silly band name,
there’s nothing bad I can say about this band. Although
these are short descriptions of the songs, there is good reason. All the
songs on this CD are straight and to the point and when the songs are
like this, to go into detailed analysis would be a waste. This CD rocks,
get it, when the band comes through town, get all the guys together,
despite their musical likings and bring to to the bar to see them.
This is what I call...music to get fucked up to!
