PISSING RAZORS - EVOLUTION - SPITFIRE
One knows that he is not dealing with the most literate of bands when coming across lines like, "living your live without a spin" (translation: living your life without a spine) or "what's holding back your killing me" (translation: what's holding back you're killing me). That reality is also present in the band's music which is a thrashing and angry mix of Pantera and Machine Head. The blue collar assertion is probably a welcome factor for the band's fans though. After all, the album features a revamped line-up. The band's fans would be glad to know that the band's approach has seen little change. Fans of the aforementioned bands, plus Fear Factory-inspired regular chants will find a great buy in Evolution. Others ought to look elsewhere. - Ali "The Metallian"
