Sirens wailing, an angry mob, in between murderously fast guitar attacks, that is how the fourth album of Finnish competition boozsters IMPALED NAZARENE begins. And it stays as chaotic until the last note. IMPALED NAZARENE show how you can lay everything to waste without blast speed parts. Insane drums, super fast Punk riffs and off you go.
Straight and strong like a storm the songs attack and let you look as dumb as a cow at a lightning. Variety? Hardly. Melodies? Forget it. Catchiness? Not really. Hefty, brutal? Hell yeah! Devastation factor 10! On this album you get the fist into the face, then the fist into the face and into the face again. And because it was so nice, a kick into the family jewels right after. Sounds almost as if VENOM, DISCHARGE and CARNIVORE met for a ménage a trois.
And as every IMPALED NAZARENE album this one also contains the obligatory "Goat" hymn. Hits of the album? I'd say the MOTÖRHEAD-like "Motörpenis" and the following "Zum Kotzen". Punks, professional madmen and speed fanatics can get this one without second thought. (Online December 22, 2003)
