Single Bullet Theory - Route 666
Matt, Ex-PISSING RAZORS, is now fronting vocals duties for this full length release. This band just like PISSING is filled with rage and anger and packed with the same type of punch that PANTERA used to carry from the vocals to the rapid fire drumming. "Murder Machines" takes off and doesn't look back. The gritty vocals ala Phil Anselmo are very noticeable here. The fact that Matt was from the Texas band PISSING RAZORS may have a lot to do with him sounding like Phil. Perhaps they were neighbours or something.

There is some melody woven into the bands maniacal sound, but it strips nothing away from the band's sound and they are just aggressive throughout the CD. Who can deny the band's anger as they discuss such lovely topics as rape, murder, depression and all that is happy. How many times can we hear this? But, oh well, if this is what makes them happy and this is what demons they have to get out of their chest, then so be it.

The music may be tough as nails, but we have all heard it before both musically and lyrically in some way, shape and form. An A is given for effort, but not enough originality to separate them from the rest of the pack. (Online September 17, 2003)
