Bloodshot Barrels Keep It Dark and Deep

With a nod to Jane's Addiction's deep, percolating bass tones, wailing guitar riffs a la Black Sabbath, and a death metal aesthetic in a similar camp as The Spittin' Cobras (though not quite as speed-driven), this 9-track debut from Studio Seven regulars Bloodshot Barrels keeps things on the dark side. With songs like opener "Acid Tongue Generator" and lyrics (on "Death Head") like "Licking into thinking/and the licking leads to thinking twice," these tunes are thrashed up, death-soaked gold; with lightning powered time changes and John Powers' made-for-metal vocals, the musicality rocks hard in a Rob Zombie/Pantera kind of way.
