Alma Cachonda

Rated 3/5 (60%) (1 Vote)

In my review of the Killers Lodge debut I likened their sound to Motörhead's dirty Rock 'N Roll and the band's second album, Alma Cachonda, continues in much the same vein though maybe with a bit of Manitoba's Wild Kingdom thrown in. This new album has more of a frenetic, Punk vibe but the riffs have maintained their thick, fuzzy sound and the bass still pounds away at your ear drums. I was hoping for the band to conjure up an "Ace of Spades" or an "Overkill" this time around, but no such luck. Alma Cachonda isn't a step back but it isn't advancement either. There are a few twists like the Black vocals at the beginning of "Warmongers" but then the song settles into the same verse-chorus-verse-chorus-solo format of every other song and there isn't a lot of variation in structure or key, so it all sounds the same after a while. Killers Lodge is capable but haven't shown anything on their two albums to separate themselves from the crowd.
