Social Animal

Rated 3.5/5 (70%) (2 Votes)

Ravenous Medicine are a project of Home Style Surgery main man Jussi Keränen that lets him delve into a strange, punky yet progressive sound that he refers to as Voïvodian Hardcore, complete with punk vocals and strange instrumental noodling. I’d be hard pressed to argue with that, but there’s enough Metal on here with the oddball twists and turns you’d come to expect from their biggest inspiration, so I’ll go ahead and say this is Thrash enough to discuss here. Sadly, there’s not much more to say about this release outside of that, as with only 15 minutes of music with a whopping 11 songs, you can’t really say anything outside the obvious fact that Social Animal is vicious, energetic, and DIY in a way that Voïvod were back when they were just starting to get more progressive and weird with their sound. This is a bit too short for me to rate any higher, but it certainly makes me look forward to more from this project.
