- The Dangers Of Evil Blizzard by Evil Blizzard
7/10 Clinton Staff review, 20 December 2013
Their name sounds like a Daily Express front page headline, they look like...well... lets just say one of them has a snout and Mark E Smith has said about them “bands like Evil Blizzard, they give me hope that music is alive and kicking”. Its an odd choice of patronage for The Fall front feller but possibly explains the peculiar nu-metal direction they took on their underwhelming ‘Ersatz GB’ album a couple of years back.
At very least Evil Blizzard are different; they use not one but four bass guitars (hang your heads in shame, Freebass), their live shows consist of masks, on stage brawls, off stage brawls, stage invasions and audience participation. Sounds rather like a Fall show.Anyway they play a brand of grimy, fuzzy metal heavily influenced by Hawkwind and Black Sabbath that could best be described as Sunn O trying to get themselves on Top of The Pops.....in 1974. ‘Clones’ shamelessly rips off Rocket From The Crypt's ‘On A Rope’ riffage before bursting into a skyscraping chorus.
“No guitars were harmed in the making of this record” they declare, neither were many tunes used it seems but on tracks like “Open Up the Red Box’ they summon the ghosts of early PIL before the sludge-a-thon begins again.
