Acid or Blood by Racebannon

8/10 Brett 21 August 2008
Racebannon are back after a few years off from their gentle ballads with a new album that they like to call Acid or Blood. Why not both though, really? This starts off with a right old tune, 'Translucent Lifeforce' pulls your face off with heavymathriffing and nails it back on upside down with drumrollbooms. It's proper, dirty, sweaty ROCK. Imagine if The Blood Brothers shed their more emo tendancies and went super devil horns, or a less spazzy and complex but equally brutal Dillinger Escape Plan. The more mathy songs are great, it's when they go all-out metal that I start to have a bit of a problem.. The hardest thing I find with getting my head around them is the vocals, they're best kept to the little stories and mutterings rather than the big screamy bits that are probably supposed to represent some sort of climax of intensity but end up just sounding a bit unimaginative; I find that with a lot of this sort of thing so it could just be me. Definitely a recommendation though!
