This band can't be serious. In case you didn't know, Danny Carey from Tool joined up with three fat dudes who have long hair. And that's exactly what this band sounds like. It sounds like Danny Carey from Tool joined up with three fat dudes who have long hair. Think: Madball trying to do metal.

This band can't be serious.

In case you didn't know, Danny Carey from Tool joined up with three fat dudes who have long hair. And that's exactly what this band sounds like. It sounds like Danny Carey from Tool joined up with three fat dudes who have long hair. Think: Madball trying to do metal. And sucking at it.

Chock full o' boring riffs and one note bass lines, the only redeeming quality of this band is the drumming, which, of course, is great. Other than that, just be prepared for lots of low-energy chugga-chugga.

I guess my main problem with this band is that Scissorfight already did this much better, and with much more hilarity. Not only is it boring and slow, but it's not nearly as ridiculous, and therefore the "this is so bad it's good" factor doesn't come into play as much.

When listening to this CD, I want to start stomping around my room, scowling and pounding my fists in mid-air. Then I want to fall to the floor laughing because I'm being absolutely ridiculous (but not as ridiculous as this CD). I swear, for 3/4 of the song, the bass plays the SAME DAMN NOTE.

Anyway, the neat part is, if you don't know the title to any song, just wait until the chorus and you'll get the entire band shouting it at you over and over again. Seriously. "Livin' Like Shit," "Drug Run to Fontana," "Swamp Creature," " Bone Orchard," etc. all feature the shouting of the song title for a chorus.

I think this might replace "The Little Mermaid Soundtrack" as my favorite record to fall asleep listening to. It's really that boring.

Anyway, if this is a joke band, they still don't do a good job of it. As I said earlier, Scissorfight blows these guys out of the water.

You want something funny? Scissorfight.

Redneck Motorhead? Nine Pound Hammer.

Both bands cover those two parts totally. This band doesn't function.

It seems I'm the only one who likes this. I checked this band out soley on the fact that I'm a Tool fan and this band and this band had Danny Carrey in it, one of the best drummers to walk the Earth. I saw them live not knowing what to expect and I actually really liked it. They reminded me of a redneck Motorhead. I actually find the lyrics to be quite hilarious. They also covered a King Crimson song live, which in my book rules. So ignore previous comments and check this out. Great riffs and solos, excellent drumming, and ridiculous vocals and lyrics to the point of hilarity. My girlfriend also thinks they kick ass. And she is a very smart person.

Penis sure does feel good inside my mouth, it gets me hard just thinking of warm spunk running down the back of my throat. I don't know if John could feel my ass tense up as he shoot his creamy man-chowder into my willing mouth.
The next morning when I woke up to find that John left without so much as a kiss, I started to feel the lowest in my life. Even lower than the time I promised a bum I'd buy him dinner if he let me fuck his ass, but after fucking, I donkey punched him and ran.
I never saw John again after that enchanted night, but I think of him often, but more so when I listen to the new Pigmy Love Circus, for that was the cd we had on while I tossed his salad like a new bitch in a prison.

"Think: Madball trying to do metal. And sucking at it"

So basically, think Madball.

Score is for the "The little mermaid soundtrack" you're such a loser to sleep with this mainstream album of poser!!!

Listen to "The Beauty and the Beast soundtrack" it's one hundred times better to fall asleep!

"this band can't be serious"

are you fucking kidding me? the name of their album is "the power of beef" that's all that needs to be said.

Hi. I'm Mr. Penis. I'm a big freakin Penis. Wax ur freakin nuts. The sound of the rip of the hair from the balls is a new "sound". a new....."genre".......We will call it "BrazilianBalls". A huge store filled with "BrazilianBalls" clothing and band items will be sold there, and myabe the name of the store will be "Flaming Nuts". Kids will then start wearing the new "BrazilianBalls" style, maybe Dildos on their head, to flastic nuts around their neck, i dont know, we have to see what becomes popular. But then bands like SImple Plan, Good SImple Charlotte, Avril, MxPx, will start claiming the "BrazilianBalls" style of music, and then "BrazilianBalls" will then die, and then its body will be infested by poser bands who have a cult following. The END.

Sincerely,
Mr. Penis
