Suicidal Tendencies

Anyone else watching this Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. show? It started out pretty hot but has gotten really bad, right?

Anyway, today's first new review is from Joe Pelone, who takes a listen to Big Business' new LP Battlefields Forever:

As fun as Big Business are live, the band have never been known for especially going out of their comfort zone. At best, it makes Battlefields Forever as good an entry point into the band's discography as any other. At worst, well, hey, it's still new Big Business.

Then, John Gentile cracks open an ice cold Pepsi and examines Suicidal Tendencies' Collection:

コレクション culls tracks from 1988's How Will I Laugh Tomorrow When I Can't Even Smile Today through 1994's Suicidal for Life. On opening tracks like "How Will I laugh Tomorrow," the band make their argument as one of the underrated thrash bands in the genre. Rocky George's guitar soars like Dan Spitz's. "Waking the Dead" is a crushing '80s mosh number that establishes a killer riff without dropping into sluggish groove metal. When viewed from the context of metal, and not short, sharp punk, it actually works pretty well.
