New Mexican Disaster Squad: New Mexican Disaster SquadNew Mexican Disaster Squad (2003)
Reviewer Rating: 5
Pop the CD in your player. The first chord rings out and a bass line rips through the noise. Within the first 3 seconds it's full speed ahead. 'You're Incorrect' the first track off of New Mexican Disaster Squad's newest full length has much more in common with Minor Threat than it does with anything in contemporary punk rock. The chord progressions tear up and down the fret board at a break neck pace and the track ends quickly leaving you gasping for air. The next track 'Vultures' is a more mid tempo rocking song with a herky jerky tempo that reminds me a lot of Black Flag meets Bad Brains. The angry vocals and shouted back ups sound pissed, but not overly tough. 'Counterfeit II' the third track is a fast and slightly more melodic song with great vocal hooks and a great ending. It has a more Dag Nasty feel than anything. The list goes on, and this record rips and tears at all the right places. At a little over 20 minutes, it ends with 'Ride the Crest' an epic closing song with a reoccuring octave part that you'll be humming for a week. 'Ride the Crest' only makes you ready to start the record all over again.
