With a glance at the cover, and the titles of the songs, you can see that they have a fascination for the more overt strangeness that other bands skip over: monsters, serial killers and B-movies, and for that alone, I salute them.
Their third album is a definite anomaly in the music world nowadays, not easy to pigeon-hole and filled with more giddy strangeness than you would think most people would want to perform, but these guys love it and it shows with every lick played. The band has hit one out of the park with this album and it isn’t a baseball, it’s a severed head.
A nice meal of industrial/punkish rock n’ roll that I enjoyed in the morning by the Las Vegas - based band, Psyatics. Famous Monsters is a 14-track album that has songs that are a mixture between speed and slow. How? Let’s find out.
Actually, I felt that I am living in 1969! Which is a year full of rock n’ roll and the birth of punk and metal. The album is like a mood that you listen to, based on the state of mind you are in. However, I felt most of the songs are similar as for the drumming, guitars and raw vocals, but I see a great output from a trio band as it’s very tight.
