7/10 Mike Staff review, 27 March 2014

Got the new LP by hairy skate punks The Shrine. The inner sleeve has a collage of photos of the band ripping up some skateparks, posing with an American flag and machete, letting off a fire extinguisher, bleeding profusely, eating pizza and standing in front of things, interspersed with scantily clad skate betties as if to cement their skate-drink-and-fuck image, which seems to borrow heavily from the film ‘Airheads’.

The music on the record itself is kind of snotty hard rock, not Oozing Wound-style obnoxious thrash like I’d hoped, more like that kind of Plight/Gallows/Bronx style swagger-punk, but scratchier and less full-on than either of those bands, shades of early Fu Manchu and Mudhoney in the way these boys get down to business with the constant flow of riffs. It’s in the riffs where this album’s strengths lie. The production can be a little flat at times and the vocals are making me cringe a bit but the riffs themselves are solid throughout and there’s some entertaining bits of guitar shred too.

I like it when they slow things down to a Black Sabbath plod on ‘The Duke’. This is a pretty decent mixture of hairy ‘70s riff rock and a more modern skatepunk aesthetic. It won’t blow you away but it’s functional party music.
