Geezer Butler is at it once again. Geezer, like before, joined together with a small group of unknown musicians, and once again came out with an excellent album.
This time, Geezer joined up with Peter "Pedro" Howse on guitars, Clark Brown on vocals, and Chad Smith on drums. (No, not the Chili Pepper's Chad Smith.) The album also features additional vocals from Geezer's son Biff on I Believe and Don't You Know, and additional vocals from Lisa Rieffel on Pseudocide.
Gzr (pronounced "Geezer") goes pure metal on songs like Pardon My Depression, goes into the world of acoustic guitars on I Believe, goes dark with Alone, goes nu-metal with Prisoner 103, and makes hardcore music with songs like Pseudocide.
The album has very good music in it. It features some very great riffs. One great riff is the opening riff to Misfit, as well as the chorus to I Believe. The drums have some very groovy beats. One example is Prisoner 103. The bass for the most part just followed the guitar the entire album. One of the cool bass lines is during the verses of Aural Sects. And the vocals have a very wide range. The vocalist does singing on some songs, such as Aurel Sects and I Believe, does some hardcore style vocals on Pseudocide, and does some more rapish nu-metal vocals on songs like Prisoner 103.
In conclusion, the album was excellent, although it only ran a short time of 43:32. It covers most styles of metal, which is a plus. And I would recommend it to anybody.
