Hard to believe it's been ten years with the Minutes To Midnight from Linkin Park, the album that stripped things back for the band, but here we are. Check out a review/retrospective of the landmark album.
The third album from the venerable psychobilly band Koffin Kats called Straying From The Pack gets the ten year review treatment from Metalloud. Find out how it has held up.
If you have never heard of the genre Psychobilly, I'll forgive you. IF you haven't heard of The Koffin Kats, you should. One of the stalwarts of the genre, known for energetic live shows, insane antics, and being at the top of their game. Inhumane is the second album from the Detroit band and this year it's turning ten. This album was really my introduction to the genre and the band and it got me hooked. It was just so well balanced, so talent laden, so good. So after a decade does this album still have what it takes? Or is it really just Inhumane?
A Decade Under The Influence Of...Mindless Self Indulgence - You'll Rebel To Anything (As Long As It's Not Challenging)
You'll Rebel To Anything (As Long As It's Not Challenging) is technically only the third studio album from the band, coming five years after the masterpiece that is Frankenstein Girls Will Seem Strangely Sexy. It represents a much different approach to the band's sound and marks their first attempt at a commercially accepted album. So does that mean they sold out?
It's hard to believe this album came out ten years ago now. Admittedly I didn't get to experience this during it's release seeing as how my first Norma Jean experience was with the 2006 followup, Redeemer. Yet this album was really a turning point for the band. Coming after the departure of their original frontman Josh Scogin, it was the beginning of a new era, The Cory Brandan era. It was a more chaotic sound than their debut, but yet featured more hooks at the same time. So after an entire decade passing since it's release how well does O' God The Aftermath hold up?
