Rated 3.13/5 (62.5%) (8 Votes)
Elm Street's second album, Knock 'Em Out...with a Metal Fist, comes five years after their debut, an album I liked quite a bit. Knock "Em Out... is definitely different, with more of the band's early Metallica/Megadeth influences bubbling to the surface in the form of Thrash-based riffs that replace the more "traditional" songwriting on the debut. The guitar work is spectacular with excellent lead work throughout. The biggest change is in the vocals. They consist of a fairly monotone core-like scream that borders on Death Metal at times. I don't hate this style but the singer sounds the same on every track as he incessantly rips his vocal cords a new ass for the full 55+ minutes of the album. Knock 'Em Out...with a Metal Fist isn't bad but Elm Street needs to at the very least vary the vocals on the next release.
