Slightly better than the AC/DC cover album this has a couple of moments that stand out, in particular the cover of At Dawn They Sleep but everything about this is just so wrong-hearing Chris Barne's overly throaty growls over the top of downtuned renditions of metal classics is just unfogivable
I think it's just baffling that they made this; it's not like the first two were all that great, either! I don't think I've ever heard death metal made to be this boring... and how the hell do you fuck up "Snap Your Fingers, Snap Your Neck"?? The only good thing about that song is the laugh I got from listening to his awful howl at the bridge. The "Psychotherapy" cover was also unintentionally hilarious... the way lines like "I'm gonna burglarize your home" were taken so out of context is the only reason I didn't give this a 1.
Definitely a poor cover album, another waste of time from this awful band, but at least it's better than listening to their original material. And even though they did a bad job with it, they chose a very underrated Metallica track "The Frayed Ends of Sanity" to cover, which was better than covering something more cliche. Whatever the case be, though it's better than listening to the bands original material, the album still blows and is the worst of the year so far.
Does anyone even take this band seriously anymore? I mean honestly, this isn't even a bad release instrumentally. Every member seems to know the songs they're playing quite well, but Barnes vocals completely destroy the possible 3/5 I would've given this. Oh well.
