Dog Fashion Disco's Todd Smith and Jasan Stepp in a band with contributors of Mudvayne and Nothingface? This baffled me at first, because it's like taking a giraffe and putting said animal in the
same room as a decomposed silverback. As I listened to Black Mass Hysteria, though, I realized the
album was actually pretty good. While it is quite on the unimaginative side, Knives Out!'s musicianship
and Todd Smith's twisted (as usual) lyrics save this supergroup's debut from becoming a dud.
As I figured when I heard the single back in March, this album is really bland and makes me wonder if my love of the Polkadot Cadaver debut is nothing more than fluke. And what is with this collaboration? DFD + Nothingface/Hellyeah?
