Evil Hate Motherfucker

Rated 3.63/5 (72.5%) (8 Votes)

My first thought on seeing the name of this album was a sarcastic "oh yeah... Now that's insightful." It turns out that the title is very well fitted to what you find inside, ten tracks of aggression and anger expressed towards today's society and pretty much everything for that matter. :) All this expressed through a mix preponderantly of death and thrash with some doomy vibes, with vocals that alternate between death growls and more intelligible thrash-type vocals (at the extreme end of that spectrum, I must add.) My favourite parts are when the guitars take over the front stage with some raw razor-sharp riffs that are not without reminding me of mid-80s Metallica, but with a slightly thrashier edge (and, coincidentally, they're from the Bay area.) The guitar work is really the highlight of the album, the players gathering many of the classic influences into their playing... Even though I found the vocals a bit annoying at times, the guitars compelled me to play this CD over and over. My only beef with the album is some hardcore influence that found its way in, especially on the third track (which still has its good moments - but the vocals are on the yucky side..) Enough hardcore to annoy me, but not enough to make me bash the album either. :) While pretty brutal, the music will still cater to people looking for some well-written songs rather than some high-speed chaotic stuff that we're often served with nowadays. Definitely worth a listen... or ten. :)
