RIVERA/BOMMA - I AM GOD - MAUSOLEUM  
If I were a Christian I would immediately demand that singer Johnny Bomma and guitarist Rod Rivera remove all references to Christ from their album, lyrics and website. The infestation of Christianity has reached a boiling point in America what with the scare-mongering by the politicians and the mind control by the corporate media over the ignorant masses in the only Western country to be heading in the right direction on matters of science and superstition. That problem aside, Rivera/Bomma is really really bad. The problem stems from an apparent fallacy in the singer and guitarist’s mind that they are actually good. They are not. The shrill screams, the meaningless guitars, soft keyboards and monotonous drums shard the air with no respect for one’s state of mind. Commercial pop tracks like Oh Girl are so cheesy that I have sworn off Cheddar from my diet for the next year. The awful fantasy and superstitious lyrics sing praise of Jesus, Jebus and god ad nauseam with more preaching per square inch of the lyric sheet than Stryper and Believer combined. It is amidst this mess that the biography claims the singer is “comparable to Ian Gillan or Ronnie James Dio”, the guitarist is “parallel to Ritchie Blackmore or Michael Schenker” and so forth. All four musicians should sue. Those claims are as pretentious and delusional as the album’s title. - Anna Tergel
